Method

1
Snap off the lower third of the asparagus. 
2
In a frying pan at medium heat, toast the sourdough bread in a little butter on both sides until golden brown. This takes about 3-4 minutes on each side. Place each slice of bread on a serving plate. 
3
Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add salt and a tablespoon of vinegar. Crack eggs individually into small cups. 
4
Create a gentle whirlpool in the water with a whisk to help the egg white wrap around the yolk when poaching. Slowly tip the egg into the water, whites first. Leave to cook for 2.5-3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a kitchen towel. 
5
While you poach the eggs, pan-fry asparagus in butter and season to taste with salt and pepper. 
6
When done, place asparagus on the butter-fried bread. Place the eggs on top and sprinkle with chervil, salt, and black pepper. Serve right away.
