1.    Preheat oven to 180°C/356°F.

2.    Wrap each asparagus spear with 1 piece of bacon. Line on a rack and place in oven for 15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.

3.    Egg time. Place 8 eggs in a pan of boiling water, for 4 minutes, so the yolks are extra runny.

4.    Assembly time. Place eggs in cups. Lie asparagus on a plate. Shave parmesan over the asparagus and squeeze over some lemon juice.

5.    Chop of the tops of the eggs, dunk in your dippers and enjoy.
