'Nduja think this snow will last much longer?
What better way to spend these unpredictable snowy days than cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Yes, that is a deliberate weather/food pun. A customer, who shall remain nameless (mainly because her name is unknown to us and customer confidentiality etc etc) came into the cheeseshop and told us she had cancelled her dinner reservations and instead bought a mountain of cheese and charcuterie which she was going to feast on in the comfort of her cosy, warm apartment. Right on, sister. You should all take note and do the same. (Disclaimer: we do support local businesses and you should continue to do so too.)
BAKED DUCK EGGS WITH 'NDUJA
Serves 2/1 hungry glutton
2 Duck Eggs
1/2 an onion
2 cloves of garlic
1/4lb of Australian Feta w/ oil
1/4lb of Nduja
1/4lb of Roasted Tomatoes
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1tspn of Paprika
1 Il Forno Baguette/your bread of choice
Preheat the oven to 400.
Grease 1 large dish/ 2 smaller ramekin dishes and set aside.
Chop the onion and garlic. Heat some of the oil from the Aussie Feta and fry the onion and garlic until golden brown.
Add the can of chopped tomatoes and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes.
Add desired amount of salt, pepper and paprika and stir.
Layer the tomato reduction into your dishware.
Crack the duck eggs on top.
Crumble some of that ever-popular aussie feta over.
Throw the roasted tomatoes on.
Pop it in the oven and let it do its thang for approximately 15-20 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled towards the end so as not to overcook those giant, rich duck yolks.
Whilst that is happening, cut the 'nduja into biggish chunks, heat some more of the aussie feta oil in a saucepan and when sizzling hot fry the 'njuda for 5ish minutes.
When the baked eggs are ready, whip them out and set aside. Turn your oven to broil and pop your baguette in. (Or if you are a functioning adult with a toaster, you can time it so your bread is toasted in conjunction with your eggs coming out of the oven.)
Wrap yourself in a throw and chow down on this hearty breakfast.
Keep in mind, folks that this is a guideline. We all like varying amounts of butter on our toast and seasoning in our dish.YOU DO YOU.
Duck into either store and tell us how you like your eggs in the morning, noon or night and pluck up the essentials for this recipe.
