Bon Appetit applauds B&O flatbread

fried eggsIn the issue that hits newsstands today, Bon Appétit magazine recognizes great American bar snacks. 

Among them is a flatbread at B&O American Brasserie. It's made with arugula, asparagus and fried eggs.

I've never had it, and I'll confess that the fried-egg aspect strikes me as a bit odd. (So much so that I considered using it as the jumping-off point for a Top Ten Strange Uses for Eggs list. But then there was there was the matter of coming up with the other nine.)

In any case, a colleague who's had the flatbread assures me it's delicious.

She did question whether it was still on the menu. I looked at the menu online and saw only one flatbread that includes an egg, but that one is combined with spiced sweet potato, kale and truffle cheese -- not asparagus.

I wondered if the vegetables change seasonally, which would make sense at a place like B&O, which bills itself as a locavore restaurant. But when I called B&O just now, I was told the asparagus version is still available.

The recipe for the flatbread can be had at bonappetit.com. You can also see a slideshow of the other snacks.

the ingredients do change seasonally for the Market Flatbread (the one featured)...appears the website doesn't change seasonally ;)

Oh the Market flatbread is awesome! I actually really like the fried egg on top, it's definitely worth trying!

I think we had a discussion about eggs after EL returned from her trip to Italy--not sure it was a top ten, though. (hmpstd?)

Dahlink, eggs were discussed on many a D&L post by EL in the past. however, I do note that you had commented positively on encountering a runny egg on asparagus while in Europe.

Hmmm, ReCaptcha is asking us to verify upside-down words. Where's Owl Meat Gravy when we need him?

Thirteen years ago on a trip to Italy we were served a pizza with a fried egg in the center...so what is old is new.

22 years ago or so I was served a pizza with an egg baked on top of it in Paris (the raw egg had been cracked on top of the pizza, and cooked in the oven with the pizza).

Thanks, hmpstd--I knew we could rely on your memory (or awesome searching skillz).

I agree--ReCaptcha is increasingly annoying and obscure. I often flip several times now before I attempt a transcription. And if I have any doubt, I copy my post first.

I had egg on a pizza in Paris only a few years ago.

I had egg on my face this morning.
