About this recipe: This is a family recipe my mother made for me growing up. It is also good served with warm breakfast ham or canadian bacon. You can just put in on before the egg. Top this masterpiece with another slice of toast to make a sandwich and eat it on the go.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cube chicken stock
  • 455 g (1 pound) asparagus
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Fill a saucepan half way full of water. Bring to a boil and stir in the bouillon cube until dissolved. Crack one egg into a measuring cup or large spoon and gently slip it into the boiling water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Simmer for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm
  2. Meanwhile, place the asparagus into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until asparagus is tender, about 4 minutes. Drain.
  3. Toast the bread to your desired darkness. Spread butter onto each piece of toast. Top with a slice of cheese, then a poached egg and finally, asparagus. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
