  • 3 heads frisee, inner white part only, washed well and spun dry
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-ounce slab of bacon, cut into 1/2-by-1-inch pieces
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 to 3 large eggs


  1. Place frisee in a large bowl. Set aside. Make the dressing: Heat a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil, and the bacon. Cook until bacon is lightly browned, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add shallots, lower heat to medium, and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar. Raise heat, and simmer for 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper. Add remaining tablespoon oil, and swirl to combine. Set aside.

  2. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Break one egg at a time into boiling water. Poach for about 2 minutes for a runny egg, longer if desired.

  3. While the eggs are poaching, pour warm dressing over frisee. Sprinkle with parsley. Toss to combine. With a slotted spoon, remove eggs from water one at a time. Pat dry on a clean kitchen towel. Place on frisee. Serve immediately.
