Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Ingredients (1 salad)

  • 1 T white vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of thick bacon, cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 shallot, finely minced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T red wine vinegar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 small head of curly endive (frisee) lettuce


Wash lettuce, cut from stalk and pat dry.

Fill a skillet with water, bring to a boil, add vinegar and a large pinch of salt. Reduce the heat, stir the water in one direction, crack egg into a cup and slide the egg into the swirling water. Cook until the egg is set, about 3 minutes. Remove the egg carefully with a slotted spoon. Set on a paper towel to dry, slightly.

Cook the bacon until crisp. Remove and drain. Add shallot to bacon grease, add red wine vinegar and cook for 1 minute. Salt and pepper as needed.

Put the lettuce in a large bowl, pour dressing over top and toss. Place a large mound of lettuce on a plate, top with egg and lay slices of bacon around edge of salad. Serve.
