Fried eggs with truffles.
Serving 4 people
12-16 whole eggs,
*optional - one finger pinch each or on taste,
Place the truffles in air-tight container with some whole eggs (for aroma absorption) in your fridge for a minimum of 24 hours. Then fry the eggs and when already in your plate, grate the truffles as much as desired with a grater. Salt if required.
Tip 1: For extra taste you can add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil infused with truffles, red pepper(up to two finger clips) and little bit of black pepper(one finger clip for each serving).
Tip 2: Should you wish to add bacon, cook the bacon first and then cook the eggs in the same pan, ensuring there is some bacon juice left before frying the eggs, so that the eggs can absorb the bacon juice too.
Tip 3: Should you decide to experiment even further you may add up to two tea spoons acacia honey for smooth fine finish, but make sure you add it at the end, so that all honey enzymes do not die(They will if the honey is heated above the temperature your hand can handle) and you preserve its natural taste.
