Instructions

2Add the asparagus to the pan and cook for 3 minutes until almost tender then keep warm with the bacon

3Rinse the pan then fill with hot water until it just touches the bottom of the poaching insert and bring to a gentle simmer

4Meanwhile whisk together the oil, vinegar and mustard and set aside

5Melt a tiny amount of butter in the poaching inserts that are being used then crack an egg into each one and place the lid on the pan. Poach for about 8 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Whilst the eggs are cooking, toast the sourdough

6When the eggs are nearly ready, place the toasts onto two plates, top with the asparagus and the bacon then drizzle with a little dressing

7Carefully remove the eggs from the poacher and place on top. Season well with black pepper and sprinkle over the chopped chives before serving.
