This is is a simple recipe for children to help Mom (or another adult) prepare for Mother’s Day (or any other time). They will feel like they are finishing up a special treat when they spoon the egg – ricotta mixture onto the toasted bread! Removing 2 of the yolks provides the start for homemade mayonnaise and also cuts down the cholesterol in this dish significantly. If you happen to have some extra tomato confit, cherry tomato chutney or even tasty tomato sauce lying around, it can be spooned onto the bruschetta before the eggs. Finish with a touch of Lucini Tuscan Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil and dig in!
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Egg whites
- 1 TB Red Onion, chopped fine
- 1/4 tsp Turmeric
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- freshly ground Black Pepper
- 2 TB Lucini Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 C soft Ricotta Cheese
- 1/4 C Lucini 3-Year Organic Parmigiano Reggiano
- 8 Baguette slices (1/2 inch thick, preferably whole grain)
- Lucini Tuscan Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Toast (or grill, if so inclined) your baguette slices and then brushed with a small amount of olive oil. Whisk together the eggs, onions, turmeric and salt in medium bowl until well combined. Pour the olive oil to a nonstick skillet and heat for 1 minute at your medium setting. Add the egg mixture and stir constantly until the eggs are mostly cooked through, but a bit runny in parts – about 2 minutes. Remove the eggs from heat, mix in the ricotta and stir just until incorporated, but the ricotta remains distinct.
Plate your toasts and spoon the egg – ricotta combination on top. Grate the parmesan cheese onto the egg and season with more salt and freshly ground pepper.
