|33 min.||56 min.||1 hour 29 min.|
|1||Pour 750 ml red wine into a pan on medium heat. Salt and add 1 teaspoon caster sugar (to reduce the bitterness after cooking).
The ideal wine for this is a red Burgundy made from Pinot Noir grapes, but do experiment with other red wines rich in tannin, Syrah/Shiraz for example.
Bring to the boil and leave to reduce gently.
|2||Prepare 8 Poached eggs.||20 min.|
|3||Prepare 6 onions and slice into thin rounds (use a mandolin, it's quicker).
Pour 4 tablespoons olive oil into a non-stick frying pan and when nice and hot, add the onions.
Salt and pepper, then leave to cook uncovered on low heat stirring regularly...
|4||...until the onions are well fried and browned.
Check seasoning, then tip onto a plate on absorbant paper.
|5||Reuse the same pan without washing it to lightly fry the 200 g small pieces of smoked bacon.
Then transfer them onto the plate with the onions, leaving the fat in the pan.
|6||Remove the crust from 4 slices bread. reheat the frying pan and fry the bread in the bacon fat until they are golden brown.||6 min.|
|7||When the wine has reduced by 4/5, mix 1 teaspoon cornflour and 2 tablespoons water in a cup.||2 min.|
|8||Then pour this mixture into the reduced wine and beat vigourously while still heating to thicken the sauce.
|9||Arrange on the plates: put a slice of fried bread on each one and spread with a layer of onions and bacon. Place two poached eggs on top and cover with wine sauce.
Garnish with a few chives and serve immediately.
