  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Arrange the bacon and black pudding in a shallow roasting tin that’s large enough for all the ingredients to fit snugly. Roast for 10 mins until the bacon is starting to crisp up, then turn over the bacon and black pudding and cook for another 5 mins.

  2. Toss the asparagus in the oil and season, then add to the tin in bunches. Roast for another 5 mins, then remove from the oven and turn the asparagus, leaving 2 holes for the eggs. Crack an egg into each gap and put back in the oven for 4-5 mins until the whites are just set but the yolks are still runny. Serve immediately, straight from the tin, with toast and your choice of sauce.

This was a great breakfast for a bank holiday weekend! Really simple to make and all the best bits of a fry up, with the benefit of a bit of a twist (asparagus) and less washing up. Would work really well for a crowd.
