Sunday Brunch Recipe: Poached Eggs with Lemon Asparagus

Sunday, May 08, 2016

I'm a firm believer that there is no better day in the week to have brunch than on a Sunday. If you follow me on Instagram you'll have realised I've had a recent love affair with poached eggs. A couple of weeks ago Jamie Oliver's recipe of the day caught my eye on Instagram so today I thought I'd share that recipe with you with a few of my little twists! It's a great healthy brunch recipe with lots of flavour to really hit the spot alongside a good latte. I chose to add some mediterranean flavours to my recipe with lemon juice and an olive, pepper and tomato bread.


This recipe will take you about 20 minutes maximum!

To serve two people you will need:

  • Four eggs (the fresher the better - my boyfriend's Dad has hens so ours were freshly laid!)
  • Six spears of asparagus
  • Olive Oil
  • Lemon Juice
  • Black Pepper
  • Sea Salt
  • Mediterranean Bread (here's a great recipe on the BBC or they do a lovely loaf in Tesco!)
  • Parmesan cheese
Method: Eggs
The real skill here is getting it all ready without anything going cold... maybe you'll master it better than I did! I poached my eggs for about 4 minutes (I like mine soft boiled) in a pan of boiling water with a drop of white win vinegar in it. 

Method: Toast
Cut your bread into wide slices and toast in the toaster until golden brown. Don't make them too toasted here! I chose to use mediterranean bread here as it has more flavour and is also softer than sour dough which I sometimes find can be a bit jaw-breaking! 

Method: Asparagus
Firstly I chopped the ends off my asparagus spears. I then sautéed the spears in a little butter and olive oil for about 6-8 minutes until soft. I then drizzled them with lemon juice and sprinkled with black pepper and sea salt. 

Method: Putting it together!
Lay your toast down on a plate and drizzle with a little olive oil. Follow this by topping with your freshly poached eggs (cutting them to let the yolk drizzle out mmmm). Then lay your asparagus spears over the eggs and top with some parmesan shavings. TASTY.


This is a great way to impress your friends if they're round for lunch (even if I do say so myself) or for treating yourself on a lazy Sunday. 

Let me know what you think of my variation on Jamie's recipe! What's your favourite brunch item?
