Poached Egg on Toast with asparagus.

Do you know that dress to impres? Has it ever happened to you to have somebody invited over for breakfast but you had no idea what to prepare to impres the person? Something unusual what can actually kick off the day. What will turn a day into the good one and will make you shine bright like the brightest star. What will make you a hero at home? Not? Have a look and cook then. The greatest poached egg on tost I have ever created.


  • 2 eggs - room temperature
  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 10 asparagus
  • 2 tbsp of vinegar
  • pink pepper for a garnish
  1. Prepare 2 small bowls and crack eggs into them.
  2. Boil a water in the medium pot and add a vinegar.
  3. When the water is boiling, turn down the heat to the medium and stir well with a spoon to create whirl.
  4. Drop the eggs (one at the time) in to the middle of the pot and poach for 3 minut or until the white will firm.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to move eggs on side.
  6. Tost slice of bread and transfer to the plate. 
  7. Grill asparagus on a dry griddle pan and layer it on the hot toast.
  8. Put the egg on the top of asparagus and top up with a poached egg, garnish with pink pepper.
Hollandaise sauce:


  • 150 g of butter (room temperature)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp of dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  1. Melt the butter in the source pan.
  2. In double boiler wisk your egg yolk, mustard and a lemon juice until you will receive nice and smooth consistency. 
  3. Remove the glass bowl from the stemming hot pan and then start adding a melted fat. DO NOT STOP wishing - continue until you poor all butter in and receive nice thick sauce. (In case the sauce got too thick add a spoon of pre boiled water).
  4. Pour over your eggs or serve on side.

I do not eat breakfast very often because I always need extra time to prepare it and I really need even more to enjoy it so I rather skip it when I am in rush. But when I have a time and have somebody over then I usually go crazy. For me a meal is a ritual and I always wish to sit down to clean my plate during a nice conversation. (Unless is a simple coffee to go and a donut which I could have in my car). Back to the subject I would like to create a separate new edition on my blog called ON TOAST. As the name is already revealing the secret I would like to send you to the very new tab. Enjoy.
