Friday Oct. 10 is World Egg Day (!). So, to get prepared for the big day, this week will feature slightly more egg recipes than usual. To start off, we have more poached egg goodness from Italy, Zuppa alla Pavese.
To begin, fry a thick slice of bread in a little bit of butter till it is golden brown on both sides. Place the bread in a bowl and carefully crack and egg on top of it. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese over the egg. Bring one cup of chicken broth to a boil, and immediately but carefully pour over the egg/bread. Ta-da! The egg gets cooked, the cheese melts, and the bread slowly dissolves into your soup.
