    Truffled Egg Toast
    Egg yolk, truffle oil, fontina cheese and garnish of asparagus.

    Notes: I gather from the clapboard proudly displayed outstide that this is 'ino's "signature dish." It's a solid one. This hearty little square of heaven is every egg and cheese-lover's dream. It's hearty, it's tasty, it's simple, and the yolk is blissfully runny - well, raw, in fact.

    It's basically a thick-cut slice of white bread that's been toasted, hollowed and filled with a raw egg yolk (no whites), topped with fontina cheese and heated just until the fontina melts. The dish is garnished with a ring of tender asparagus sections.

    Anytime truffle oil is used, smelled, or tasted, I swoon. The truffle smell was (pleasantly) particularly strong. The yolk was barely cooked - probably only very slightly due to heating the cheese.

      I bought their recipe book just so I could make this dish at home, although I cheat by cooking the asparagus in a pan, not grilling like they do.

      It's mind-bogglingly easy.

      @ Adrienne and wEnDaLicious: You should have smelled it. It is wonderful!

      @ kathryn: So, do they put the yolk in before they broil it to melt the cheese? Also, do they toast/pan griddle the bread before everything else?
