A glamorous Classic: Fried egg & Chips… with Foie and Truffle!

Does this dish need a description? Wouldn’t you just run for the bread? Is there any other dish as popular as Fried eggs with chips? I bet every country in the world has its version.

Raise your hand if you don’t like fried egg with chips… exactly what I thought: everybody loves it! But this time, surprise your Buddie, husband, dear, cuchi, cari, honey, babe and add some glamour to the basics! Some foie and truffle will surely be a surprise here.

Want to give your affected Valentines dishes a twist? Have this breakfast ready for her/him and think what will come after… you need to burn the calories ;D.

My sister in law grows her own veggies and has her own hens and, last time she visited was so nice to bring us some eggs… see that bright orange yolk? That shows the corn hens eat :D. I’m sending my glam eggs to Grow Your Own, Andrea’s Recipes Event, which calls for home made/grown products. When it’s this cold, hens don’t lay as many eggs as usual… so, thank you Tati for sharing them with us!


Enjoy it!!!

Ingredients for 4 servings: 4 eggs, 3 medium onions, 3 medium potatoes, 4 slices of foie (raw goose liver), 1 truffle, olive oil and thick sea salt.

  • Peel and cut the onion in fine strips. Caramelize in some olive oil at low heat. When it achieves a brown dark colour put in a strainer to remove the excess of oil. Reserve.
  • Peel the potatoes and use a mandolin to get the thinner possible. Fry in olive oil 0,4º. First 5 minutes the heat should be high, then low down to medium and when they get golden and crispy place over kitchen paper to leave there the excess of oil. Reserve.
  • Preheat oven at 150 ºC.
  • Fry the eggs and reserve.
  • Heat a sauce pan and when it becomes real hot add the foie slices. Just some seconds each side. Reserve.
  • Present the dishes: Prepare a bed with the potatoes, pour some salt over them, place some of the caramelized onion, the foie with some thick sea salt on top and the fried egg with some more sea salt. Place in the oven to heat it up a bit and just before serving grate the truffle over it.

Looks so delicious, Nuria! I especially love the chips. So crispy and delicious. And the foie…what a great addition!

This decadently wonderful. With a breakfast like this, who needs lunch? Very creative and I’d love to try it if someone brought me fresh hen eggs and I had foie gras and a truffle…in fact, I don’t even a potato in the house so I guess I’ll just continue to look at your photos and drool!

By foie do you mean just raw duck liver, like in the description, or do you mean foie gras? In America we don’t call liver fois and we don’t call foie gras just foie. Or I don’t. No… we don’t. Do people in England? (and I get it that it’s the French word for liver)

Restaurant quality Nuria. Beautiful dish both in terms of presentation and taste–a delicious combination of simple everyday ingredients and decadent ingredients indeed.

Hola Peter! I like your new profile picture! I have the fresh eggs from time to time but is sooooo apreciated it.

Si Cynthia, I know what you mean :D

Hola Maria José! Mi hija también es una “lover” de las patatas fritas y los huevos fritos :D. Espero que tus hijos lo disfruten!

Thanks Elly! Yeah so good… the only negative thing about this dish are the calories! But once a month can’t be too bad, can it?

Joan, you are so welcome to come over and seat in my table :D… no need to go to shop to buy the ingredients!!!

Nathan… sabes como llamamos al huevo frito con arroz y salsa de tomate aqui? Arroz a la Cubana!!!!!

He, he, Courtney… that would be a delicious heaven :D

Thank you Susan! It’s a big hit among kids, and I see that adults with young souls love it too :D

He, he Peter… then you know what to cook for that day ;D

Thanks so much Jen!!!

Ha, ha ha!!! Thanks Amy!

Thanks Vij and welcome to Spanish Recipes. I’m so glad you enjoy it :D. Yeah, I will come to visit in short… see you!

Hola Aaron and welcome to Spanish Recipes! Yes, by foie I meant raw goose liver. Sometimes I use the word in french (foie=liver) and that could be confusing. Foie grass normally comes in cans and I used the raw one. I don’t think the other could work in this dish.
Thanks for commenting :D

Thanks so much Maria :D :D :D

It’s breakfast time and I’m thinking how much I would just love to have this right now with a hot cup of strong coffee. Sigh..

01/24/2009 · 16:40 h by Lori Lynn

Oh dear. This is painful It is 8:30 AM here on a rainy Saturday morning and there is nothing I would enjoy more than this breakfast. Foie and Truffle my two most favorite ingredients!!! What a masterpiece!

01/25/2009 · 1:20 h by Familia

The ultimate comfort food, isn’t it? But you’ve done it so glamorously and dressed up!

01/25/2009 · 18:35 h by Nathan

Haha that’s cool “Arroz a la Cubana” I see.

In my house we like it served with fried ripe plantains or slices of avocado on the side. Sometimes we’ll serve it with “Papa frita” and dip the french fries in the egg yolk so good!

01/25/2009 · 23:58 h by janetching

This is so irresistible. I like your new header too : )

01/26/2009 · 16:07 h by Núria

Hola Giz! I wish somebody would have this ready for me when I wake up! I’ll keep on dreaming ;D

Thanks so much Lori lynn!!! I wish I had here my magic wand! :D

Hola Familia! Thank you, gracias :D. Es muy facil pero requiere un poco de paciencia :D

That is a sin Nathan!!!! That kind of dip means going straight to Infierno :D :D :D

Thanks so much darling Janet :D
