Just because I’m trying to shed a few (hundred) pounds does not mean that my love for a good weekend breakfast has disappeared. If anything I now resolve to keep my brunching antics but within plan! aware that this makes me sound a bit posh but duck eggs are so under used and their flavour and yolks are worth the extra pennies – and if Sunday isn’t the day for a bit of luxury then when is?
So Dunkie Duck Eggs with Ham Wrapped Asparagus Dunkers.
it’s all in the title really. However for the sake of the blog and preserving a record of my meals:
- 4 Duck eggs
- Bunch of Asparagus
- Wafer Ham
Pre heat over to 180C, fill sauce pan 3/4 full with water. Turn hob on and pop the asparagus in (or steam above the water if just using the tips….). When the water comes to the boil – take them out but leave the water on the boil. Take a slice of wafer thin ham and wrap around the asparagus shaft, lie on a baking sheet and mist with low cal cook spray if you really want (I didn’t)
Pop tray in to oven and put eggs in to boiling sauce pan. Cook for 4 -5 mins for Delicious gooey soft yolk, up to 10 if you want them harder (but then you cant really dunk)
Pop the eggs into egg cups – smack/crack the heads to let the heat out and prevent them from cooking much further while you get your asparagus out.
Serve with pinch of salt and a smug feeling of Sunday started well.
