This is a satisfyingly lovely way to start a Saturday morning. A little rich, yet light. Seriously, is there anything more luxurious than a crisp Bosc pear with soft bleu cheese?! For this, I bought a little smoked bleu and let it come to room temperature. You can always tear into a fresh baguette and smear on butter to complete the meal with true French flair.
Brew some strong coffee, put on sounds from the French countryside and set the mood for a fabulous day.
Makes breakfast for 2:
2 large eggs (preferably organic)
1 Bosc pear (washed and sliced)
2 tablespoons bleu cheese
1/2 teaspoon Herbs de Provence (divided)
salt/freshly cracked pepper to taste
Slice the pear and divide onto two plates. Using a large non-stick pan, warm on medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Crack each egg directly into the pan, careful to keep them separate; gently run a knife into the yoke to break slightly. Season each egg with 1/4 t.spoon Herbs de Provence, salt & pepper, then cover with a large lid to steam, about 2 minutes or once yoke has reached desired consistency. Remove eggs and place on each plate. Sprinkle bleu cheese over eggs and pear. Enjoy!
