Pane Frattau


Pane Frattau is a traditional Sardignian dish that is part pizza, part pasta, part huevos rancheros.  It is made using the traditional, round, cracker-like, pita-ish, bread.  The bread is dipped in boiling water and then topped with tomato sauce, a light sprinkling of local cheeses, and a nice, runny poached egg.

It really reminds me of aforementioned huevos rancheros if they were served on a bed of tagliatelle.  The bread, having turned soft, (but not soggy) in the water, forms a good base that the other ingredients stick to.

Despite the strange texture, it really turned out to be a comfort food, like many things consisting of bread and eggs.  Was it the best meal I have ever had? No.  But you should give it a shot.  It tastes better than it sounds in print.
