  • 1/2 cup local Ontario parmesan
  • 75g local Ontario Swiss Style Cheese

  1. In a large non-stick pan, cook guanciale until crispy. Using a slotted spoon, place crispy guanciale on a paper towel-lined plate. 
  2. Using the same pan, cook shallots, garlic and spices. Add in milk and cream. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until the mixture thickens slightly. Crack in eggs. Top with cheese and sundried tomatoes. Top with guanciale. Cook on low and covered until the eggs are just cooked. Top with herbs. Maldon and black pepper. Top with lemon zest.
