Joann Mathias


This simple recipe presents beautifully. And the Classico Light Creamy Alfredo Pasta Sauce was indeed divine with the egg and garlic crostini. Make this for a brunch doing the holiday season. Or perhaps a light supper after a long day of shopping.

How to Make Alfredo Egg & Garlic Crostini with Baby Romaine Salad and Bacon Vinaigrette


  1. 1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate and reserve the fat.
  2. 2. Make the vinaigrette – Whisk the balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and honey together in a mixing bowl. Slowly drizzle in the bacon fat and olive oil while whisking rapidly until the salad dressing is thick and creamy.
  3. 3. Toss the baby romaine, apples, cherry tomatoes and bacon crisps with the vinaigrette.
  4. 4. Make the parmesan cream – Heat the milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat until bubbles form at the edges. Reduce the temperature to low and stir constantly until the cream coats the back of a metal spoon.
  5. 5. Remove from heat and stir in the parmesan cheese.
  6. 6. Make the crostini – Lay bread slices on a foil-lined baking pan. Brush each baguette slice with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  7. 7. Toast the bread slices and rub each slice with the garlic.
  8. 8. Cook the egg – In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Crack eggs in pan and cook to desired firmness.
  9. 9. Assemble – Layer an egg, parmesan cream, crushed or sliced almonds on a toasted baguette slice. Garnish salad and crostini with tomatoes and serve.
