'Nduja Egg Toast | Fried Egg with Spicy Calabrian Sausage

If you're the kind of person who likes to splash a little Tabasco on your eggs, then you've come to the right place. Cooking with a dollop of spicy, Calabrian 'nduja gives an unbeatable zing to a fried egg.

'Nduja Fried Egg Toast Recipe

Watch the Pasta Grammar video where we made this simple recipe here:

Serves 1.

For this recipe, you will need:

- 1 large egg

- 'Nduja (we recommend up to 1/4 cup, but feel free to adjust according to your desired level of heat)

- Salt

- 3-4 small flakes of caciocavallo cheese (optional, also feel free to replace with your favorite firm cheese)

- 1-2 slices of bread

Heat a skillet of medium temperature. Add the 'nduja and allow to melt, stirring frequently. Use a spoon to gather the melted 'nduja into the middle of the pan, then crack the egg directly on top.

Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the egg and, if desired, add a few flakes of cheese around the yolk. Cover the pan and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the egg white is fully cooked through.

Meanwhile, toast the bread slices in either a toaster or in a hot pan. Serve the egg on top of the toast.

Buon appetito!

I was able to find the Tempesta 'nduja at an Italian specialty shop near me. As someone who always puts hot sauce on eggs, I just loved this!

A father's day gift to myself was a breakfast sandwich using this recipe but serving it on a homemade English muffin. The McNdujaMuffin. Thanks again Harper and Eva for the introduction to nduja!

Tried both recipes and thought they were a little bland. Kept thinking this is not chorizo and eggs burrito. Living in California Harper should know this. Would Eva Like it?

Interesting. I am going to have to try that. A local sausage maker does a Mexican chorizo hopefully hot enough .

I might also try a version with English muffins. Sort of a McNdujaMuffin.

This is a comment on the episode as opposed to the recipe featured here. I hope our hosts will move or remove it as they see fit.

Capriccio di pesce is something I had never heard of. However, on my next visit to a Calabrian deli near me I saw it on the shelf and thought to buy it. What harm? I thought.

I was blown away by this. I have put it on toast, on crackers, and just on a spoon. Truly an absolute delight!

If you can find it, and like a spice backed by deep flavours (and don't look too closely at the noodle fish) you need to try it. I hope you can.

Thanks, again Eva…

How nice to watch Eva and Harper on a Sunday morning and have them offer a delicious dish for Sunday lunch. AND to have all the ingredients in the kitchen. If you can get nduja you have to try this!
