If you like eggs and spring vegetables this recipe you have to just try it. Meanwhile, because it is simple, then because it is beautiful to see and finally because it is really good. The Robiola cheese fondue enhances the taste of vegetables, dark yolk spreads on asparagus, the toasted bread and almonds give that crisp notice that I like so much. Whoever follows me knows that I have a particular love eggs, that I feel worthy to be true stars of a dish, it's an appetizer, a soup, a first or a second plate. And for the poached egg I have a clear preference. Asparagus, beans and fresh peas will not last much longer, so I really urge you to try this dish, which is also perfect for a Sunday brunch in alternative to the usual omelets or scrambled eggs with bacon while excellent. Happy Spring to all!
