'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.
Watch the Pasta Grammar video where we made this simple recipe here:
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)
- 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.
