Asparagus and Bacon with Soft Set Eggs

Asparagus and Bacon with Soft Set Eggs

The snappy, crispy texture of asparagus with soft and rich egg sauce is really good.

Ingredients: 2 servings

2 bunches
4 rashers
Soft Poached Eggs
Black pepper
to taste
Parmesan cheese
as needed
Olive oil
as needed


1. Cut the bacon into 1 cm and asparagus into 5 cm.
2. Fry the bacon in olive oil and set aside from the pan. Fry the hard section of the asparagus first with the bacon fat and add the softer parts later on, since they'll cook through quicker.
3. After the asparagus are fried, transfer to a serving dish. Scatter with fried bacon. Place the soft set eggs on top and dress with the packaged sauce that accompanies the eggs (if available -- the store-bought kind often comes with sauce in Japan).
4. Sprinkle on parmesan cheese and black pepper.
5. This is a pasta version. Cook the pasta in plenty of salted water with a little vegetable oil and mix with olive oil after cooking.
6. Place the asparagus, bacon and soft-set eggs on top of the pasta. If necessary, season with salt and black pepper.

Story Behind this Recipe

I usually season stir-fried asparagus and bacon with salt and pepper but I wanted to make something with different seasonings.
I was vaguely thinking that there might have been a pasta dish like this, and I added in a soft-set egg. That was a very tasty decision.
