Ingredients
  1. 6 oz (175 g) thick cut Ontario bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  2. 1 shallot, minced
  3. 1 tsp (5 mL) honey
  4. 2 tsp (10 mL) Dijon mustard
  5. 1/4 tsp each salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1/4 cup (60 mL) red wine vinegar
  7. 1/4 cup (60 mL) extra virgin olive oil
  8. 2 bunches frisée, torn into bite-size pieces
  9. 1 head Boston lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  10. 1/4 cup (60 mL) sliced radishes
  11. 4 poached eggs
  12. 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh chives
Instructions
  1. Cook bacon in skillet over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes, until fat is rendered and bacon is crisp. Remove bacon and let drain on paper towel.
  2. Drain fat, keeping 2 tsp (10 mL) bacon fat in pan.
  3. Add shallots to pan and sauté until tender, about 2 minutes. Add honey. Remove from heat. Whisk in mustard, salt, pepper, vinegar and olive oil.
  4. Toss dressing with frisée, Boston lettuce and radishes. Divide among 4 plates. Top each with a poached egg and sprinkle with chives.
Notes
  1. • To poach an egg: Crack an egg into a small dish. Slip eggs into a skillet of simmering water mixed with 1 tbsp (15 mL) vinegar. Cook until white is set and yolk is cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to paper towel-lined plate with slotted spoon.
