Ingredients:  
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
8 ounces Canadian bacon, cut into "dice (1 cups)
1 large shallot, minced

2 frisee, or curly-leaf endive lettuce, torn (8 cups)

Directions:
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon; cook, stirring, until brown and crisp, about 8 minutes.
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon to a large bowl. Add lettuce to the bowl. Add shallot to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture onto the lettuce; toss to coat.
Meanwhile, bring about 1 inch of water to a boil in a medium skillet. Crack each egg into a small bowl and slip them one at a time into the boiling water, taking care not to break the yolks. Reduce heat to low. Cover the pan and poach the eggs until the yolks are just set, 4 to 5 minutes.
Divide the salad among 4 plates. Top each serving with a poached egg. Grind pepper over the top and serve immediately.
