Ingredients
  • 250g pack Grower’s Selection Asparagus
  • 100g pack Chosen by you Prosciutto
  • 4 large eggs, to serve
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Slice off the tough ends of the asparagus spears.

  • Wrap each asparagus stem in a slice of the prosciutto and put on a baking sheet.

  • Cook the asparagus in the preheated oven for 10 mins or until the prosciutto starts to crisp.

  • Meanwhile, place the eggs in a large pan and add enough cold water to just cover them. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for exactly 3 mins.

  • Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove the soft boiled eggs from the pan and put into egg cups. Serve straight away with the prosciutto- wrapped asparagus soldiers for dipping.
