Here is the special recipe by Paolo Parisi to revolutionize a simple slice of sliced bread on the plate, turning it into a luscious salty snack
The most delicious fable of the summer could start like this: «Once upon a time there was a egg with a slice of bread around". Or at least this is the beginning of the curious recipe suggested by Paolo Parisi – eclectic chef, scrupulous producer, but above all creative at 360 degrees – who using his own eggs Leghorn chickens, reared on the farm Spots of Usigliano di Lari, in the province of Pisa, he decided to give a simple slice of bread in a box a destiny far from the usual toast. "It is an absolutely simple recipe, but one that can give satisfactions", the chef smiles, while he revives the fire of his Ofyr brazier and it is armed with a faithful stainless steel scoop.
«Let's take a slice of bread in a not too thick box, preferably naturally leavened, and remove the central part of the crumb before placing it on the brazier plate , he explains. The next step is to open the egg, separating egg white and yolk. «With the little fingers we are going to press well on the bread, so that it adheres completely to the plate. At this point we pour the albumen into the hole and wait a few seconds: very little will be enough for it to coagulate sufficiently so as not to overflow below the bread .
At this point we can immediately season our egg white, from the upper surface still liquid, going to add salt, pepper and above all grated cheese. «We complete everything with small strips of salami, maybe bacon, browned properly on the plate. The egg can be combined with any ingredient you want, but it is advisable to add some vegetables, to make everything fresher . Once the desired egg white is reached, we add on the surface also the yolk, and leave it all on the Ofyr brazier for another minute or so.
«Take the scoop, well sharpened, and remove our toast from the plate, to place it gently on the plate. It is really a very easy snack to prepare, which can be declined as you prefer, with a little imagination. For an optimal result what matters is the quality of the ingredients: of course, it is advisable to use the brazier plate, which is the ideal surface, but alternatively you could also try with a non-stick pan . All that remains is to revive the fire and prepare for our egg with the bread around.
