Fast & Easy Dinner: Fried-Egg Caesar Salad

Fast & Easy Dinner: Fried-Egg Caesar Salad

Traditionally a raw egg yolk is used to make Caesar salad dressing. However, this ingenious recipe places a fried egg on top of the salad. When the yolk is left runny, it coats the lettuce leaves, resulting in a similar effect. This variation lacks croutons, but crunch is provided by grissini, long skinny Italian breadsticks. Sun-dried tomatoes add a subtle sweetness to this quick, delicious dinner salad.

For the recipe,

Ingredients

  1. 8 thin slices prosciutto, each halved lengthwise
  2. 8 long thin breadsticks (grissini)
  3. 1 12-ounce package hearts of romaine, torn coarsely (about 16 cups)
  4. 3/4 cup drained marinated oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (from 8.5-ounce jar), each halved
  5. 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese plus more for sprinkling
  6. 8 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  7. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  8. 1 teaspoon fish sauce (such as nam pla or nuoc nam) or 3/4 teaspoon anchovy paste
  9. 1 small garlic clove, pressed
  10. 4 large eggs

Directions

  1. Spiral wrap 1 slice (2 halves) of prosciutto around each breadstick.
  2. Combine romaine, tomatoes, and 1/2 cup cheese in large bowl. Whisk 7 tablespoons oil and next 3 ingredients in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper; toss with salad. Divide among plates.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Drop eggs into skillet. Cook until whites are firm and yolks are cooked to desired consistency but remain slightly runny.
  4. Top each salad with 1 fried egg. Sprinkle eggs with more Parmesan cheese; serve with prosciutto breadsticks.

Serves 4.

Hmmm...I think I'm going to pass on this one. I like fried eggs, but don't want them on top of my salad greens.

Darn, for some weird reason the recipe doesn't show up for me. This sounds yummy though, I guess I'll try again later and see if the recipe shows up.

I figured those breadsticks for chopsticks and thought that was a really stupid way to serve a fried egg. Now I get it.
