A while ago I made the German classic of eggs in mustard sauce, so I checked some old recipes and found that.
|Lost eggs with sweet and sour bacon sauce|
recipe for 2:
150 g smoked bacon
1 large or many small onions
2 cloves of garlic
1 heaped tbsp flour
1 heaped tbsp butter
1 tbsp mustard
3 tbsp vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
300 ml warm water with some veg or chicken stock cube
salt and pepper
a pinch of dried thyme
500 g potatoes
2 tbsp creme fraiche
150 ml milk
Start with boiling the potatoes.
Chop the onions and the garlic and start in a pan with the butter, add the bacon bits and let them cook 3 minutes. Chuck in the onions and garlic and get them a bit brown. Stir in the flour and get it brown a bit too.
Add the stock and the vinegar, add sugar and mustard and season. Cook for 5 minutes.
It has to balance between sour and sweet, that is the moment you drop in the eggs, get a lid on an cook them for 4 minutes and check that the yolk stays soft.
Make the mash and pour the bacon sauce on top, serve with the eggs and cut into an egg to self sauce the mash.
