The Top Chef Breakfast Sandwich [Recipe]

After watching the latest episode of Top Chef season 10 in Seattle I got inspired to do my version of the quick fire challenge winner dish. The green forest breakfast sandwich about nothing.


½ bunch of Basil 
½ bunch of Parsley 
½ bunch of Coriander 
½ jalapeno pepper 
3 shallots 
4 cloves of garlic 
100 grams of pancetta 
100 grams of chorizo 
3 eggs 
4 slices of bread 
50 grams of grated Gouda cheese 
50 grams of grated Parmesan cheese 
1 Avocado 
Olive oil 


Parsley / Basil puree 
Blend the basil, parsley, coriander, shallots, 2 garlic cloves, jalapenos, touch of salt, pepper and add slowly a bit of water into a blender until it gets a pureed consistency 

Beat 2 eggs, some milk, add salt and pepper. On a pan, add a bit of olive oil, lightly fry the pancetta and chorizo, then add the eggs mix, most of the basil puree, and the grated cheese. Cooked like you’re doing an omelette 

On a blender, add 1 egg, a pinch of salt, 1 garlic clove, and a touch of the puree. Blend adding slowly olive oil until it gets a mayo consistency 

Drizzle the bread with olive oil and toast it on a hot pan 
Finally add mayo to the toasted bread, add the cooked eggs, some avocado, and enjoy 

Final product
Eggs remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Pick” 

George: It'll be different this time
Susan: I need someone a little more stable
George: I'm not stable? I'm like a rock. I take these glasses off, you can't tell the difference between me and a rock. I put these glasses on a rock. You know what jumps into most people's minds? Costanza!
Susan: People don't change
George: I change I change. Two weeks ago I tried a soft-boiled egg. Never liked it before. Now I'm dunking a piece of toast in there and I'm loving it
Susan: I'm not a soft-boiled egg
George: And I am not a piece of toast
Susan: I just don't think we have anything in common
George: That's okay. That's good. You think Louie Pasteur and his wife had anything in common? He was in the fields all day with the cows, you know with the milk, examining the milk, delving into milk, consumed with milk. Pasteurisation, homogenization, she was in the kitchen killing cockroaches with a boot on each hand
Susan: Why were there so many cockroaches?
George: Because. There was a lot of cake lying around the house. Just sitting there going with all the excess milk from all the experiments
Susan: And they got along?
George: Yes! Yes. You know. She didn't know about Pasteurization. He didn't know about Fumigation. But they made it work!
