This morning the sun was out radiating it’s warmth, something it hasn’t done in what seems like weeks! Nic and I had a Sunday sleep-in (awesome, as did the boys!) and then we went for a run to really embrace the sun and lack of rain (I’m trying to be positive here).
We returned home to cries of “I’m hungry!”…”What’s for breakfast?”…”We are starving!”
As I was running up the last bit of our hill I had the same thoughts running through my head. What I really felt like, what I really wanted to eat, was poached eggs. Not just your garden variety, I’d had a brilliant day the day before with my lovely friends E and Shelly. We took E out for lunch because she had a pretty full-on week at home single-parenting and a ‘girls day’ felt like it was in order as soon as Ross got back from his business trip.
On this ‘girls day’ we had lunch at one of my favourite places, Aquacotta and then proceeded to stroll casually through the streets looking into boutique shops (something you do not do with the family in tow). One of the shops we looked at was a foodie haven (will have to get back to you with the name) and instead of buying a lovely top or dress I was hell bent on the delicious looking sale al tartufo staring me down!
Like anything new you want to use it asap and considering our lunch then turned into an apperitivo before we headed home for dinner, Sunday breakfast was the first chance I had to test my delicious looking sale al tartufo.
I think after many years of poaching eggs in restaurants I can turn out a pretty awesome poached egg and to make it even more appetising than usual, a sprinkling of truffled salt was in order.
The sun shining, a run out of the way and beautiful poached eggs with truffled salt was an awesome way to start the day. I love, love, love truffled anything but with the addition of salt, well the list is endless as to what I can create.
What is your perfect Sunday breakfast?
I love poached eggs, sausage, home fries, and toast. Although I think I will need to get some truffle salt now for it to be really complete.
It will go perfectly!
poached eggs and truffle salt? Che buonoooo
Truffled salt is wonderful stuff. Sounds like a yummy breakfast, but that hunk of bread is the one thing I could never find here….I love Italian breads….
Yes your right, it is very good
I love poached eggs too in fact all kinds of eggs. Your pictures had me drooling! Over here, our perfect breakfast is 2 slices of kaya and butter toast (kaya is a pandas leaves boiled with eggs, sugar and coconut milk spread) + 2 half boiled eggs + a cup of tea or coffee, Singapore style!
Your breakfast sounds delicious! A perfect way to start the day…I have never heard of kaya so thanks for the info
Looks yummy 🙂 I usually have oatmeal or muesli with yoghurt.
It’s funny — i have nearly 20 chickens, we get reams of eggs every day and I’ve NEVER poached a egg. What is wrong with me? (Jealous of your Italian adventure, btw!)
Hi Camilla, I have loved following your Italian adventures. Jack and I fly out on 1 May for our trip to Italy – perhaps we can buy you a coffee in Florence?
Oh my goodness, I have to get my hands on some truffle salt! Maybe I’ll get some when I’m in Florence this Spring. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful adventures!
Lynda I would love to see you and Jack! Please get in touch and we can get together for sure x
Ooh, you can poach my eggs any time. And I mean that literally, I’m not trying to insinuate anything there. I am talking about actual hen’s eggs.
