Ingredients

  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 4 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • 4 slices Coles Bakery Stone Baked by Laurent Multigrain Sourdough Vienna
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 bunches asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil, extra
  • 20g baby rocket leaves
  • 1/4 cup (20g) shaved parmesan

Spring onion dressing

  • 3 spring onions, trimmed, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 1 tbs lemon juice

Method

STEP 1

To make the spring onion dressing, place spring onion, mint, garlic, oil and lemon juice in a food processor. Process until smooth. Season. Transfer to a bowl.

STEP 2

Bring a saucepan of water to a simmer over high heat. Add vinegar. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl. Stir the water to create a whirlpool. Pour the egg into the centre of the whirlpool. Cook, without stirring, for 3 mins for a runny yolk or until cooked to your liking. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a bowl. Cover to keep warm. Repeat, in batches, with the remaining eggs.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, heat a chargrill on high. Brush the bread with a little of the oil. Cook, turning, for 1-2 mins or until lightly charred. Transfer to a plate.

STEP 4

Brush the asparagus with the remaining oil. Season. Cook on the grill, turning, for 2-3 mins or until tender. Transfer to a plate.

STEP 5

Place 2 prosciutto slices, long sides overlapping slightly, on a clean work surface. Top with one-quarter of the asparagus. Wrap the prosciutto around the asparagus to enclose. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto and asparagus.

STEP 6

Arrange the bread on a serving platter. Top with the asparagus parcels and egg. Drizzle with the spring onion dressing and extra oil. Sprinkle with the rocket and parmesan.
