Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 12 min
4 (1 1/2-inch slices) of English Muffin Bread, Brioche or multi-grain bread
8 ounces Fontina cheese, Swiss cheese, or Gruyere cheese (or other mild semi-hard cheese), sliced thinly
1/4 cup grated best-quality
Preheat oven to 450
degrees F. Lightly spray baking sheet with olive oil.
Hollow out an indentation in each bread slice large enough to hold two egg
yolks. Leave a sufficient cushion of bread surrounding the indentation to
avoid leakage. Place the bread on prepared baking sheet.
Place two egg yolks in each bread indentation. Place the slices of the
cheese over the entire slice of bread (to its edges).
Place the bread in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. During the last 2 minutes of baking, place
grated Parmesan cheese on top of each toast. Remove from oven and, using a
spatula, place each bread slice on an individual serving plate. Lightly drizzle the top with
the truffle oil in a diagonal stream.
Serve immediately with salt and pepper at table and pass additional truffle oil, if desired. Sprinkle sliced
asparagus spears on the place around the toast.
Makes 4 servings.
