Fried Egg, Salumi and Pesto on Focaccia

This fantastic brunch was inspired by Design Sponge’s “In the Kitchen With” guest Charlotte Tolhurst. I made a few changes using salami, basil pesto and freshly made focaccia.  The results ~ incredible!  Truly guest worthy.

Original Recipe for Fried Egg with Chorizo and Sage Pesto Sandwich:

Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 4 mins
Serves: 1

Sandwich Ingredients:

1 ciabatta roll
1 egg
5 hand cut slices chorizo  ( about 5mm or a little less than 1/4 inch thick)
A hand full of rocket
A little olive oil


50g (2 ounces) sage leaves
50g (2 ounces) walnuts
150 ml (2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons) extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
50g (2 ounces) Parmesan
5 grams (1 tsp) salt


Combine all ingredients in mini food processor and pulse until blended.

To make your sandwich, fry the chorizo in a hot pan with a little oil, not too much as the chorizo will produce its own oil. 

When the chorizo is starting to crisp up move to the side of the frying pan and fry your egg until the white is cooked through and the yolk is still runny.

Slice open a ciabatta roll and fill with the chorizo then the rocket and top with the egg, finishing with a drizzle of pesto.
