Had this today for breakfast. Very nice, very tasty. However, I think the calorie count is too low. Here's what I get: 4eggs (4x70kcal), 100g asparagus (35kcal), knob of butter (say 20g 150kcal), herbs (negligible), ciabatta (say 3oz. 185kcal) and parmesan (say 20g 80kcl). That gives a total of 730kcal or 365 per serving. It might not seem like a lot but it is important that this information is accurate for people on a calorie-controlled diet such as the 5:2 diet where the daily calorie total is important.

I made this for a simple dinner for two, ate outside next to our herb garden. Very easy to make and wonderful, rustic flavours.
