  • 4 Asparagus spears wooden ends trimmed
  • 2 slices of bacon cut in half
  • 2 eggs
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste


  • Wrap the trimmed spears of asparagus with a half of a piece of bacon each.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place the bacon wrapped spears seam side down into the hot skillet.
  • Cook, rolling occasionally, until the bacon is cooked through and crispy on all sides and the asparagus is tender, about 10-13 minutes.
  • Place on a paper towel to drain excess fat.
  • Once the asparagus starts cooking, heat an inch of water in a small saucepan over medium high heat until boiling.
  • Add the egg, reduce the heat to medium, and cover with a lid.
  • Let the egg cook for 6 minutes then remove it from the stove.
  • When the six minutes are up, run the saucepan and egg immediately under cold water until the egg is cool enough to be handled.
  • Using a butter knife, crack the top edge of the egg then gently slice the top bit of the egg off.
  • Place the egg in the soft egg dish and serve with the bacon-wrapped asparagus soldiers and the egg top. Serve with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper on the side.
  • Side Note: If you don’t have the soft egg dish, you can peel the egg completely (carefully) and serve in a ramekin.
