SO HOT YOU COULD FRY AN EGG
So I did! But don't worry, there won't be any pavement residue in this recipe. This toast is seriously delicious and can be served for brunch or a classy mid afternoon snack. Inspired by the furnace that is Washington DC.
Speaking of furnaces... This recipe features Cherry Glen's Monocacy Ash Goat Cheese. It's a soft ripened two layer cheese with a line of edible ash. Insanely yummy and decadent.
- 1 tbs. of butter
- 1 tbs. of olive oil
- 1 heriloom tomato, cubed
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 clove of garlic, chopped
- smoked salt to taste (or regular salt)
- pinch of smoked chipotle powder (or smokey paprika)
- pinch of aleppo pepper (or chili powder)
- 2 tbs. maple syrup
- 3 tbs. apple cider vinegar
- your favorite goat cheese
- piece of toast
- 1 egg
Heat butter and olive oil in a sauce pan. When the oil looks runny, add the onion, cook over medium high heat until the onion is translucent. Add the tomato, smoked salt and garlic. Cook for 2 mins. Then, add the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, smoked pepper powder and aleppo pepper. If you can't find these ingredients, then use paprika and chili powder instead. Bring mixture to a boil, then cover and simmer for 7 mins until the mixture resembles a loose jam.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil on a pan over med-high heat. Crack an egg directly over top the pan and cook for 7 mins, or until the egg slips around in the pan. I like my eggs runny, but cook you're egg to your liking. Toast a piece of bread. Spread goat cheese on the toast, top with the tomato jam and fried egg on top.
