Vietnamese Egg Coffee

We just wrapped up season 2 of Backyard BBQ Battle 3 weeks ago.

I used this recipe on the show as a side to my main dish on the East meets West episode and it was well received by the judges.

It has absolutely nothing to do with BBQ, but it was really tasty and will be made often in my house.  Enjoy!

Vietnamese Egg Coffee 

  • egg yolk 
  • 3 teaspoons of instant espresso powder 
  • 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk 
  • Boiling water 

  1. Brew a small cup of espresso. 
  1. Crack an egg and discard the whites. 
  1. Put the yolk and the sweetened condensed milk in a small, deep bowl and whisk vigorously until you end up with a frothy, fluffy mixture. Add a tablespoon or two of the brewed coffee and whisk it in to temper the egg.   
  1. In a clear coffee cup (we’re going for aesthetics here), pour in your brewed coffee, then add the fluffy egg mixture on top.
