How to Get the Most from Your Egg Slicer


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 12 cups packed mesclun (6 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 slices thick-cut lean bacon, cut crosswise into thin strips
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil with the vinegars, basil and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Add the mesclun and toss well.

  2. Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet. Add the bacon; cook over moderately high heat until crisp, 2 minutes. Quickly stir in the eggs and cook until barely scrambled, about 15 seconds. Remove from the heat to prevent overcooking. Spoon over the salad, toss and serve.
