An unexpected treasure – local truffle
I love to buy local produce and discover everything that grows in the region. Summer always brings so many delicious treats but I was very surprised when I found a small bowl of truffles for sale at the fishmonger! They were picked about seven miles from here (and not in France, that we can see on a clear day), so very local indeed! I just had to buy one! I gently carried my treasure home thinking of what to make.
I decided to pair the truffle with eggs, simple and classic. I placed the truffle in a jar with the eggs, truffle can get through the egg shell and add flavor by just being placed next to the truffle.
I chopped up the left over barbecue meats and potatoes, see recipe and marinades here and pan fried it.
I chopped up some vegetables and then fried the egg white in a very thin layer. I saved the egg yolk. I made an egg roll with the hash inside, added the vegetables and added thinly sliced, locally foraged truffle on top!
It was a lovely brunch and what a way to start the day!
