Ingredients

  • About 1 1/2 quarts water
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 slices country-style bread, each 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto
  • 4 teaspoons chive oil, recipe follows
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat a broiler or a lightly oiled stove-top grill pan.

Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Salt the water, add the vinegar, and then lower the heat so the water barely bubbles. One at a time, break the eggs into a custard cup or small bowl, and then pour into the water, trying not to break the yolks. With a slotted spoon, gently lift and shape the whites around the egg yolks until glazed but still liquid, about 2 1/2 minutes longer.

While the eggs poach, toast the bread slices on both sides. Put a slice of toast on each of 2 plates. Immediately top with the prosciutto so that it softens from the heat of the toast. Lift the poached eggs out of the water with a slotted spoon, letting excess water drip off, and then place an egg on each toast. Drizzle each toast with 2 teaspoons chive oil and then grind a little black pepper over each. Serve immediately.

Chive Oil:

2 cups coarsely chopped fresh chives

1 cup olive oil

Place chives and olive oil in a blender and puree. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Pour through a funnel into a bottle for storage. Cover and refrigerate. Use within 2 weeks.

Yield: 3/4 cup
