Frisee Breakfast Salad

I call this a breakfast salad because I would eat this for breakfast and it has bacon and a fried egg…need I say more? Frisee is a bitter lettuce in the Chicory family. I usually cut it with other mixed greens, which helps to soften the bitter edge. Since it’s a bitter lettuce, it just begs for fatty toppings to cut through! Get bacon nice and crisp or add a fired egg on top, or both!

What you need:

  • half a head of frisee lettuce, washed and drained
  • half a bag of mixed lettuce, washed and drained
  • 4 piece of bacon, cut into pieces
  • 1-2 eggs
  • garlic
  • oil & lemon juice for vinaigrette
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Cheese for serving, I prefer goat chevre

While you prep the lettuce, cook the bacon over medium heat. Remove when it is nice a crisp and let drain on a paper towel. Save the bacon fat. You’ll cook you eggs in it.

Make garlic vinaigrette by making garlic paste and then combining it with olive oil and lemon juice in a 2:1 ratio. Toss your lettuce in the dressing. Now cook your eggs in the bacon fat till the white is just set. (Let the edges get a little crispy!)

Serve the salad with crispy bacon and a fried egg on top!
