    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and pancetta to a skillet; cook over medium heat until pancetta is crisp.
    2. 2
      Using a slotted spoon, remove pancetta to paper towels to drain; set aside.
    3. 3
      Make salad dressing: combine the olive oil, vinegars, garlic, shallot, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
    4. 4
      Poach the eggs: use your preferred method or as follows—bring enough water to cover whole (unshelled) eggs to boil in a small saucepan; gently lower eggs into boiling water.
    5. 5
      Let them boil only for 30 seconds, then carefully remove them (this preliminary cooking serves to set the whites a bit and makes the eggs much easier to handle).
    6. 6
      Bring the 5 cups water and cider vinegar to a simmer in a deep skillet.
    7. 7
      Gently crack each egg and open it directly over the simmering water.
    8. 8
      Let the egg gently slide into the water; spoon simmering water over the eggs if they are not completely submerged.
    9. 9
      Remove the skillet from the heat and cover for 4-5 minutes; assemble salad during this time.
    10. 10
      To make 6 individual servings: place 1 head of frisée on each plate and spoon the dressing on top.
    11. 11
      When poached eggs are ready, with a slotted spoon lift them out of the water and onto a kitchen towel to drain.
    12. 12
      Carefully place the drained eggs on the dressed frisées.
    13. 13
      Season to taste with salt and pepper; scatter pancetta over the eggs.
    14. 14
      Garnish each plate with freshly made crostini; serve immediately.

      Wow! The vinaigrette went great with the pancetta. The combination of all ingredients was tantalizing my taste buds more and more with each bite. I would highly recommend this for a special occasion brunch. Thank you.

      Wonderful salad! The bitterness of the frisee is perfectly offset by the flavors of the egg and pancetta. The dressing is nice and light, a lovely complement to the whole. Thanks for sharing!
