Poached egg, Butternut Arpeggio Cappuccino & Onion Rings

A medley of crisp textures and a play on sweet and savoury conjure notions of a breakfast classic.

Preparation (8 persons)

Preparation of the breading for the poached eggs:

  • Mix the black bread crumbs with the ground coffee of a Nespresso Arpeggio capsule.
  • Cook in boiling water 8 eggs for 6.5 minutes then remove from water and cool in cold water and peel.
  • In a bowl, break one egg; beat it with salt and a drop of cream.
  • Place eggs previously cooked in flour, then in beaten egg and then in breadcrumbs.
  • Refrigerate.

Preparation of cardamom butternut cappuccino coffee:

  • Peel the butternut, remove the seeds and put aside 16 of them.
  • Cut into cubes.
  • Peel and chop the onion.
  • In a skillet sauté the onion, the already crushed cardamom seeds and butternut with olive oil and butter.
  • Deglaze with the white wine and chicken broth, pour in the cream and milk.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for 20 minutes at a simmer.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix and pass through a sieve.
  • Add the 4 Arpeggio coffees.
  • Keep warm.

For the soldiers and the onion rings:

  • Cut 8 thin slices of bread cut into long rectangles and toast them.
  • What remains is to be dried in the oven then blended until you get white breadcrumbs.
  • Glaze the fingers with royal icing and add 2 Butternut seeds and bake (without colouring them).
  • (Icing sugar, lemon juice, salt, nutmeg, egg white, orange peel)
  • Slice 8 rings from an onion then bread and fry them. Keep for the dressing.

Finishing and presentation:

  • Place the eggs to fry in a deep fryer for 30 seconds at 180°.
  • Emulsify the butternut cappuccino.
  • In a bowl put a good ladle of butternut cardamom cappuccino coffee.
