Being In and Out from the blogger world back with an easy but delicious recipe. Little soldiers! does the name amuse you it is simple soft boiled eggs with crunchy asparagus. Wanted to make this recipe right from the time I saw this in Nigella Lawson's cookery show (long long back!) but never had the oppurtunity to do.

Made them during last weekend along with some toasts, sausages, hash browns and waffles. It was simply delicious.The combination of gooey eggs and crunchy asparagus was mind blowing. This was the first time I cooked Asparagus n it was tasty, next time will make many dishes out of it. Now lets move ahead to the recipe

You need:

Eggs                       4nos
Asparagus               8nos
Salt and pepper to taste


In boiling water add little salt and cook the asparagus in it for about 5 min. Drain them and dunk them in cold water to retain its colour.
Boil water  in another pan when it is rolling boil add the eggs in it and cook them for exactly 4 minutes.
Remove from water.

Place the cooked eggs in individual egg holders, using a serrated knife slice the top of the egg sprinlke with salt and pepper n Serve with Asparagus.
Dunk the asparagus in the gooey egg and enjoy!!

If you dont have Asparagus then cut bread into slices , toast them and enjoy with eggs


In your page after a long time.
This is my sinful brekkie...on a lazy Sunday morning I love to dunk my bread and asparagus in the gooey golden yellow heaven. Love it.
