1 tablespoon Fustini’s 12 Year White balsamic vinegar
Red pepper brunoise (small diced)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Fustini’s Robust SELECT olive oil
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk, plus more if needed
6 ounces grated Emmenthaler or Jarlsberg cheese
1 cup spinach, lightly chopped
Cut muffin in half and toast. Place a poached egg on half of a muffin and spoon sauce over top. Garnish with Red Pepper Brunoise.
Step 2. Florentine Sauce
Melt butter with olive oil in a medium-size pot. Add flour and cook, stirring, for several minutes. Bring milk to simmer in a small pot. Add simmering milk to flour and whisk. Turn heat to low and continue whisking until thick and creamy. Add additional milk if it becomes to thick. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg and remove from heat. Whisk in cheese and then spinach. Use immediately.
Step 3. To poach an egg
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then reduce to low. Crack the egg in a fine-mesh sieve (over a small bowl) and remove the liquidy whites. Transfer the egg to a small ramekin or bowl. Add one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the pot and stir to create a vortex. Pour the ramekin with the egg into the middle of the vortex and set a timer for 3 minutes. Once the egg is done, use a slotted spoon to remove the poached egg. Dab with a paper towel to remove excess water and eat immediately.
