Egg, Arugula, and Herb Tartine

Tartines make a simple appetizer, light lunch, or snack.


  • 2 thick slices of good bread
  • 2 big handfuls fresh baby arugula
  • 1 sprig tender rosemary
  • Several chive stalks
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper


Toast the bread and scrape on a little butter. Roughly chop the herbs and arugula as the rest of the butter heats in a small heavy sauté pan. Sauté the herbs and greens for just about a minute or until slightly wilted. Add the egg and quickly cook over medium heat until barely scrambled around the greens.

Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper, pile on the toasted bread, and eat immediately.
