Frisee salad with bacon & poached egg

Method

  • To make the dressing, put the mustard and garlic with 150 ml oil, 25 ml vinegar, salt and pepper in a small jar. Shake well, taste for seasoning and set aside. 
  • Heat a little fresh oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and fry the croutons and bacon until golden and crispy.
  • At the same time, bring a thin layer of water to the boil in a large pan and swirl in a little vinegar. Individually break the eggs into a bowl (or cup) and carefully put into the water. Then poach to the desired degree, basting with a little of the water as you do so. Drain well and neaten up the edges. 
  • Toss the lettuce, croutons and bacon with dressing to taste. 
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates, top with a poached egg and sprinkle extra dressing over and around. Garnish with a little parsley.
