Asparagus and Poached Egg Salad with Burrata

  • Preparation 20 MIN
    Cooking 15 MIN
  • Makes 4 to 6 servings



  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a simmer and add the vinegar. Break the eggs, one at a time, into a saucer and slide in the water. Poach for 2 to 3 minutes or until the desired doneness. The yolk should be runny and the whites cooked through. Remove the eggs using a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  2. With the rack in the highest position, preheat the oven’s broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place the asparagus on the lined baking sheet and oil lightly. Broil for 5 minutes or until al dente (see note). Place a large serving platter and garnish with the watercress. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the cheese and poached eggs. Drizzle with the lemon juice and olive oil. Serve as an appetizer with sliced baguette.
