asparagus and poached eggs

This is another of those "not really a recipe just more of an idea" posts.
I saw the idea for this in a magazine - but of course do not remember which one. What I do know is that I've been craving poached eggs ever since.
Weird craving...I know.

The mixture dressing the asparagus is bacon, a little chopped red onion and a couple cloves of chopped garlic. Some salt and pepper and all done. I did the pan fry trick again because I didn't feel like firing up the grill.
Then poached a couple eggs and voila!
Lunch is served.

Bring a pot of water to boiling so it's ready for the egg.
Chop everything up.
Crisp the bacon then remove from the pan.
In the same pan saute the onion and garlic.
Remove from the pan.
Toss the asparagus in there.
Let cook for about five minutes - just until it starts looking a little charred in spots.
Then add the bacon, onion and garlic mixture back in.
Poach your egg(s).
(I imagine a pan fried egg would be just as tasty if you didn't want to dirty another pot)

Sprinkle a little salt and some fresh ground pepper all over the mixture.

Plate and enjoy!


  1. Very Nice! I have been eating poached eggs like crazy. The best one yet was made with rice vinegar. I spread a bit of triple cream brie on hot toast and served with a sprinkle of fresh parsley, kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper.

    1. HELLO BRYCE!!! Long time no talk.
      And now all I can think about is triple cream brie!
      That sounds delicious.
      Thanks for sharing your idea.
