A shopping spree with a friend? How fun. ;-)

I'd like a million pound kitchen, myself. So many dreams, so little money. ;-)

What I like about this recipe is that it's easy AND quick!



well, this is it, my brekkie tomorrow morning!

I love spicey foods. Can you add diced hot pepper to this recipe?

What a delicious looking dish. Asparagus and poached eggs are wonderful together. The extra added special ingredients only make this an even better combination. I'm hungry now.


Hi Johanna - truffle oil must be a really nice extra touch, it looks/sounds heavenly!


hey thanks for the recipe it is really good and it worked well i had a fabulous dinner party the other night and it worked wonders thanks again joanna x


Hi Johanna....I love your blog....but not this recipe.

Im not sure if you realise it, but sorry to say there isnt really any such thing as "top-quality truffle oil".

Unless you make it yourself which is very difficult and then it will only last 2 or 3 days.

All commercially sold truffle oils are produced from a chemical called 2,4-dithiapentane. Some may have slivers of dried truffles added, but regardless these have long since lost any flavour.

I am trying to put together a "truffle oil free zone list" that lists chefs and restaurants in the UK that refuse to use this product. Maybe some of your readers can help ? Best regards
