Human innovation is truly a wonderful thing, and it shows itself nicely in this recipe. When you are ready for something different for breakfast without stepping outside of the normal breakfast food, make sure that you try this recipe. It is easy and your family will love it.


1 bunch of asparagus
4 large free-range eggs
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
crusty bread

Place a large griddle pan over a high heat. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus, then add to the pan in an even layer and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, put the eggs into a medium pan, cover with cold water and place over a high heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 3 minutes for runny eggs. Meanwhile, get your egg cups ready – dippy eggs will wait for no one once they’re done! Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove the eggs and place in the cups, then tap each shell gently with a teaspoon and remove the tops. Serve straight away, with the griddled asparagus for dipping, salt and pepper on the side, and bread to mop up, if you like.
