Recipe Ingredients for asparagus with poached egg and pancetta

10 spears (1/2" base) Asparagus
2 large Egg, Whole
2 tbsp Vinegar, Cider
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 oz Pancetta
2 tbsp chopped Chives
2 tbsp Parmesan, Grated Cheese

Recipe Directions for asparagus with poached egg and pancetta

  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and simmer asparagus for 3-6 minutes or until they are just past being crunchy. Remove from water and toss in the olive oil and season.

  2. Add vinegar to the water and poach eggs over a low heat for 3-4mins. You want the yolks to still be nice and runny. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain.

  3. Divide asparagus between two plates. Top each plate with two slices pancetta and then top each with an egg. Sprinkle with parmesan shavings and chives and serve.
