    Serves 2

    Total Time 45 mins

    Prep Time 15 mins

    Difficulty Level Medium


    8 strips thick sliced bacon

    1/2 cup maple syrup

    2 tbsps white wine vinegar

    4 large eggs

    1 tbsp finely chopped shallots

    1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

    2 tsps grainy Dijon mustard

    3 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil

    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

    6 gently packed cups of frisée greens, torn into medium-size pieces


    1. Separate bacon and blot dry with paper towels. Coat both sides of bacon liberally with maple syrup. Lay bacon in a single layer on a sheet pan with parchment or a silicon baking mat.

    2. Cook bacon in a preheated 425° oven, turning once, until browned and lacquered, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled plate to cool. Break slices into quarters.

    3. Prepare eggs for poaching: Bring a 4-quart saucepan of water to a boil; add vinegar; reduce heat to medium-low. Crack each egg into its own ramekin and set aside. (Don't cook the eggs yet.)

    4. In a medium bowl, whisk together shallots, lemon juice, mustard, and olive oil. Season to your taste with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss frisée with vinaigrette. Divide frisée and bacon between 4 plates.

    5. In the saucepan, slide the eggs into the water and cook until just firm, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon to drain the eggs, top the salads with an egg and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
