Roasted Beets w/ Smoked Trout on Brioche w/ a Poached Egg
Doesn't the title say it all?
I stole this idea from a popular Jersey City brunch spot, where they served a version of this.
Hey, I had the beets, I had the trout, I just had to buy some brioche! I can make this at home!
If you don't want to poach an egg (you can see I am poached egg challenged), then spoon a dollop of fresh ricotta on the toast instead.
This would make a nice salad for breakfast or in my case, lunch.
Use a nice piece of brioche (a French eggy white bread), or a slice of challah toasted.
Poach an egg in some boiling water w/ a tablespoon of vinegar. Here's a good way.
Lay on top of the toast.
Quarter some roasted baby beets (which I made in the a.m.), and scatter them around.
Use 2 baby beets for each person.
For each plate, use 1 piece of smoked trout from a can. Break up the fish and scatter about.
Lay some nice mache or watercress around and drizzle with some good olive oil.
Sprinkle w/ sea salt & pepper.
