  • 6 spears fresh asparagus
  • 2 large fresh eggs

  • Bring a pan of water just to the boil then reduce to a light simmer.

  • While the asparagus is grilling, poach the eggs in the water for around 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove the cooked eggs and drain each egg, in the spoon on a paper towel, then place egg on top of the grilled asparagus.

  • This recipe can also use steamed asparagus, and eggs can be fried if you prefer a crunchy texture.
  • Serve on fresh toast for a more substantial breakfast.
