Ingredients

  • 400 g asparagus spears
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 250 g wood-smoked, streaky bacon, chopped
  • 100 g butter, melted
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions

Blanch the asparagus spears in a saucepan of boiling water.

Place the eggs in a saucepan of cool water, then turn up the heat. When simmering, remove from the heat and leave to stand for 2 to 3 minutes for soft-boiled eggs. Rinse under cool water to stop the cooking process.

Fry the streaky bacon in a pan over a medium to high heat until crisp and golden.

Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter and drizzle with the melted butter and lemon juice, before topping with the streaky bacon.

Tear open the soft-boiled eggs and arrange around the blanched asparagus.

Season to taste and serve straight away.
