The Classic Frisée and Poached Egg Combo

June 23, 2010

I have not vetted this recipe, but it was mentioned by a fellow CSAer as a good combination. This version gets good reviews on epicurious.  I’m sure it would be especially tasty if you’ve got an egg share! Also, I bet you could sub sweet salad turnips for those French breakfast radishes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds assorted wild mushrooms (such as chanterelles, morels, oyster, and crimini), thickly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 small heads of frisée (about 9 ounces), torn into small clumps
  • 2 bunches French breakfast radishes or other small radishes, trimmed, thinly sliced on diagonal

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Place mushrooms in large bowl. Toss with 4 tablespoons oil. Scatter mushrooms on rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper. Roast until tender, stirring occasionally, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool up to 2 hours.

Place large bowl of cool water near stovetop. Pour additional water into large skillet to reach depth of 2 inches. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and generous sprinkling of coarse salt to skillet. Bring water to simmer over medium heat. Crack eggs, 1 at a time, into water (whites may spread). Simmer until whites are cooked through and yolks are still soft, occasionally spooning water over, about 3 minutes.

Using slotted spoon, transfer eggs to bowl of cool water. Reserve skillet with poaching water. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Bring reserved skillet of water to simmer. Rewarm eggs 1 minute.

Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons oil and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in another large bowl to blend. Season dressing to taste with coarse salt and pepper. Add frisée, radishes, and mushrooms and toss to coat. Divide salad among plates. Top each salad with poached egg and serve.
