Breakfast’s on Jamie

I have a deep abiding love for breakfast. Many of my favourite memories are built around plates piled with eggs, bacon and the occasional hash brown.

These eggs were inspired by Jamie Oliver’s television show, Jamie’s Great Britain. They were poached in cling wrap, sitting in a little smear of olive oil, fresh dill and salt and pepper. I served them atop steamed asparagus and buttered toast. Eating it felt luxurious and virtuous at the same time, with the delicious flavour and the virtue of vegetables at breakfast. We all loved it, except the child that detests eggs, who was fobbed off with toast and a tin of spaghetti.
