Recipe – Truffle Sandwich with Soft-boiled Egg

Truffle Sandwich with Soft-boiled Egg
Truffles are one of winter’s great highlights! These little black nuggets with the unmistakable aroma cost $2,500/kilo – but you only need a few grams for an indulgent breakfast treat. Keep the indulgence going with a slightly sweet Moscato d’Asti, such as the wonderful organic one from brother and sister, Alessandra and Gian Luigi Bera, at just 5.5% alcohol it’s the perfect breakfast wine.

Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 25g salted butter, softened
  • 6 thin slices sourdough baguette
  • 20g fresh black truffle
Method
  1. Boil the eggs as soft as you like, but certainly so that the yolks are still runny.
  2. Meanwhile, spread the butter on the baguette slices, don’t be shy with it (truffles need fat to bring out their flavour).
  3. Shave thin slices of truffle and arrange them on the bread.
  4. Peel the eggs – soft-boiled eggs can be hard to peel, but don’t worry if they don’t look perfect, the peeled side won’t be visible.
  5. Halve the eggs lengthways and place them on plates cut side up, sprinkle any crumbs of truffle over the top, arrange the bread on the side and serve.
  6. Mound pieces of egg onto the sandwiches, the warmth will help release the truffle flavour.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
