Polenta with fried eggs

    15 min

    A very quick and tasty idea for a filling vegetarian brunch dish. Slices of ready made polenta are pan fried and topped with a fried egg. I would suggest using a non-stick pan to reduce the amount of oil needed. You can find blocks of ready made polenta in most large supermarkets.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 (500g) block of ready made polenta, sliced into 8 thick slices
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 pinch of salt

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat.
    2. Arrange the slices of polenta in the pan. Cook slices on one side until golden brown, about 4 or 5 minutes; flip the slices over and brown them on the other side for another 4 or 5 minutes. Remove polenta slices from pan with a spatula onto a plate; cover with foil to keep warm.
    3. Lower the heat, crack the eggs into the pan; season with salt and cover pan with a lid. Cook eggs for 1 or 2 minutes, until the egg whites are firmed.
    4. Place 2 polenta slices on 4 serving plates; top with fried egg.
