Country Salad with frisee, lardons, poached egg and homemade croutons

Executive Chef Philippe Bertineau, Benoit New York

(Serves 4)

2 heads frisee, washed well and spun dry

2 shallots, finely chopped

1 bunch chives, finely chopped

8 ounces smoked bacon, cut into 1 ½ x ¼ inch strips

4 tablespoons white vinegar

4 large, fresh eggs

4 slices of white bread, diced into ¼ inch squares, toasted in butter until golden brown

2 tablespoons butter

Mustard dressing

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 ounces red wine vinegar

6 ounces of grapeseed oil

Salt and freshly ground white pepper

Sea salt

Procedure

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Bring a medium pot of water and white wine vinegar to a boil.

3. Toss diced bread in some melted butter. Place in single layer in baking tray and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

4. Heat a pan over medium heat. Add bacon. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and set aside in a small bowl.

5. For the dressing, whisk mustard, vinegar, and grapeseed oil until emulsified.

6. In a large bowl, toss frisee, shallot, chives, lardons, with dressing. Salt and pepper to taste. Plate.  Top with croutons.

7. Reduce boiling pot of water to a simmer. With a spoon, swirl water one time around and break one egg at a time into water. Poach for about two minutes for a runny yolk or longer if desired. With a slotted spoon, one at a time, remove eggs from water. Top each plate of frisee with an egg. Sprinkle egg with some sea salt. Serve immediately.
