  • 8 oz. king trumpet mushrooms (about 4), halved
  • 1 (8-oz.) loaf white country bread, torn into 1¬†1‚ĀĄ2-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1¬†1‚ĀĄ2¬†tsp.¬†fine ground¬†coffee

Instructions

  1. In a 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and return the skillet to the heat.

  3. Melt the remaining 6 tablespoons butter in the skillet, then add the bread and cook, turning, until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer the bread to the bowl with the mushrooms and season with salt.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, with the coffee powder, and sugar until combined. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and mix until smooth. Pour the dressing over the mushrooms and bread, add the bacon, frisee, and avocado, and toss until evenly combined. Divide the bread salad among 4 serving plates, halve each egg, and place to halves over each serving. Serves 4.
