Playing Steakhouse Tomato Stacks


  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup creme fraiche
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 6 beefsteak tomatoes


Serves: 4 to 6 servings


Place a small skillet over medium heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon. Add the chopped bacon to the skillet and cook until golden and crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and let cool.

While the bacon is cooking, whisk together the buttermilk, crme fraiche, garlic, dill, chives, lemon juice, horseradish, salt and pepper in a medium-size mixing bowl. Set dressing aside.

Slice each of the tomatoes in half widthwise. Lay a few rings of red onion onto the base of each tomato and then cap each tomato off with their tops.

Transfer the tomato stacks to a serving plate, top with a little of the prepared dressing and garnish with the bacon.
