  3. Meanwhile, heat a knob of butter in a frying pan and fry the wrapped asparagus over a medium heat, turning frequently, for about 4 minutes or until the asparagus is just tender and the pancetta is golden.
  4. Remove the eggs from the water, then serve in egg cups with the asparagus to dip in as soldiers.
