Ingredients

  • 8 pancetta
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pkg (340 g) mixed mushrooms sliced
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 curly endive torn (about 10 cups)
  • 1 radicchio lettuce torn (about 4 cups)
  • 4 eggs poached
Caper Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon drained caper finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Caper Dressing: In bowl, combine shallots, vinegar, capers, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper; whisk in oil until combined. Set aside.

In large skillet, cook pancetta over medium-high heat until crisp, about 4 minutes; drain on paper towel–lined plate. Drain off all but 2 tbsp of the fat from pan.

In same skillet, cook mushrooms, salt and pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 6 minutes.

In large bowl, toss together curly endive, radicchio, mushroom mixture and dressing. Divide among plates; top each with pancetta and egg.

Poached Eggs In large saucepan or deep skillet, heat 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) water over medium heat until simmering. Add 1 tbsp vinegar.

One at a time, crack eggs into custard cup or small bowl; gently slide into simmering water. Reduce heat to low; cook until whites are set and yolks are still soft, about 3 minutes.

With slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel–lined tray; keep warm.
