Milk and Roses Chef Makes Simple Bread Pudding with Broccoli Rabe, Egg and Chili

egg broccoli rabe bread chiliThe most satisfying dishes are often the most easy and simple to prepare. When I met with Chance Jones, the new chef at Greenpoint’s Milk n’ Roses, a cafe and wine bar that has just rolled out a new menu, I asked him to show us how to make the simplest dish on the menu.

He chose the Acuasale all’Uovo, which is Traditional Southern Italian Bread Pudding, Broccoli Rabe, Soft Egg & Chili.

This was the first time I have ever seen bread being boiled! It was a fascinating technique and the results were very delicious.

Boil day old bread with chopped and clean broccoli rabe in generously salted boiling water. Meanwhile, fry an egg in chili oil, and top it with more chili flakes. Cover it. Then drain the bread and broccoli rabe and toss with more chili oil. Add the egg on top and that is it!

It was the perfect rainy day lunch.

Don’t you agree that Milk n’ Roses should add this simple hearty dish to their brunch menu?

I am definitely going to try to make this at home… perhaps sweeten it with some milk and honey (no egg of course!) and maybe top it will some berries.
