Duck eggs are larger and arguably better in flavour than most commercial hen’s eggs. Simply fry and serve them with shavings of truffle or drizzled in melted butter.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 thick slices sourdough or country-style bread
extra virgin olive oil or truffle oil, to drizzle
1 garlic clove, halved
1 tablespoon duck fat or rapeseed oil
2 duck eggs
few small fresh thyme sprigs
black summer truffle, as much as you dare, to serve
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the grill. Place the bread on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil and some seasoning and toast for 1–2 minutes on each side, until golden. Rub the toasts with the cut side of a garlic clove.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the duck fat or oil in a frying pan. Crack the eggs into the pan, season and gently fry over medium heat for 3 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are to your liking. Add the thyme leaves towards the end of cooking.
  3. Place the toasts on your plates and top with the fried eggs. Finish with a drizzle of oil and a scattering of finely shaved truffle.
