½ lemon
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 mortadellas
fresh coriander

How to Cook Poached Egg and Mortadella Sandwich

  1. Heat a skillet and add 1 tablespoon of butter. Let it melt. Take the burger bun and slice it through the middle. Place the slices in the skillet and cook them for about 1-2 minutes per side, until crispy.
  2. Bring a saucepan with water to a light simmer over medium heat. Add a pinch of salt and pour the white wine vinegar. Crack 2 eggs directly in the saucepan. Use a spoon and create a gentle whirlpool that will help the egg white wrap around the yolk. Cook the eggs for about 2 minutes (really soft egg) to 4 minutes (soft to firm one). Remove the eggs from the saucepan with a slotted spoon.
  3. Take the remaining egg and separate its yolk from the white. Melt the other 2 tablespoon of butter and gently pour it over the egg yolk while whisking. Squeeze the lemon in the mixture and season it with salt and curry powder. Whisk well.
  4. Take the toasted buns and top each of them with a slice mortadella and a poached egg. Add about 1 tablespoon of sauce per slice, and sprinkle some fresh coriander on top.
  5. If you have any remaining sauce, you can keep it for later on, and serve it next to a good steak!
