fried egg + truffle oil...

Posted on | 10 June 2010 | 6 Comments

discovered this little dish at a tapas restaurant up in santa barbara a few months back and have been making it religiously almost weekly. it's so easy, and so satisfying. do yourself a favor and shell out the cash for a bottle of truffle oil - it makes all the difference...

INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 pieces of sourdough bread
8-10 stalks of asparagus
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. truffle oil
1 tablespoon grated manchego cheese
sea salt and black pepper, to taste


DIRECTIONS
Toast your sourdough bread while heading a large skillet with extra virgin olive oil. Add asparagus stalks and saute until cooked through and slightly browned. Heat olive oil in a nonstick frying pan, and add room temperature eggs to fry.

Once bread is toasted, top it with a layer of sauteed asparagus, and add the fried eggs on top of that. Sprinkle with truffle oil, grate manchego cheese over the top, and enjoy.

    Sounds amazing! My wife and I like to do the same thing, only with a poached egg. So good!
    btw, Have you been to super rica in Santa Barbara? It was a Julia Child favorite when she was alive and living there.

    Hey Aron - I haven't been to Super Rica (or heard of it for that matter)! Definitely adding it to my list for my next visit north. Thanks for the heads-up! :)

    You'll have to let me know what you think!
    A word of warning... it's true to its name so bring an appetite or prepare to split things.
