What’s better than breakfast in bed on a Sunday?
Brunch in bed on a Sunday!
Even better, my pimped up poached eggs for brunch in bed on a Sunday!
If you’re lucky you could put in an order with your other half to have it cooked and served for you.
In my books that could just possibly be the perfect lazy Sunday!
Unfortunately I didn’t get my order in early enough and it was down to me to prepare my Sunday brunch.
So I got to work on my poached eggs with asparagus & chorizo all tumbled over a toasted bagel.
Why have just poached eggs on a bagel when you can have pimped up poached eggs?
Chop up as much asparagus & chorizo as you fancy (taking the thin paper casing off the chorizo first).
Get a deep pan of water going on a gentle boil and put in a dash of vinegar. Using a spoon, swirl the water around creating a whirlpool effect. Crack the eggs into the water as it is swirling around. Leave the eggs to poach for 2-5 minutes depending on how runny you like them.
Meanwhile start to fry the chorizo & asparagus in a frying pan. There is no need to add oil as the chorizo will ooze a natural oil that will add a delicious flavour to the asparagus.
Once the eggs are nearly done and the chorizo is nearly browned, cut a bagel in half and toast it.
Take the eggs out with a slotted spoon and pop onto some kitchen paper to take off the excess water.
Smother the bagel in butter, top with the plump eggs and then toss over the asparagus & chorizo.
Let the chorizo oil drizzle all over the eggs. You don’t want to waste a drop.
Don’t worry about making the plate look pretty, after all it is a lazy Sunday!
Then say to yourself ‘Tuck in, you deserve it’!
Cheers to a tasty, lazy Sunday with my pimped up poached egg Sunday brunch!
