Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 12 mins

    Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat broiler to high.

    Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and set over medium-high. Bring to a boil. Add asparagus to boiling water. Boil until tender-crisp, about 5 to 6 minutes. Using tongs, remove asparagus from water and immediately plunge into a bowl of cold water. Drain and pat dry. Set aside.

    Add vinegar to water. Reduce heat to medium-low. Break eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl. Holding bowl close to water’s surface, gently slip eggs, one at a time, into water. Cook until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but do not become firm, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to lift out eggs and set on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • 4

    Spread each bread slice with 1 tsp margarine. Arrange slices, margarine-side-up, on a baking sheet. Top bread with tomatoes and asparagus spears. Sprinkle cheese overtop. Broil until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.

  • 5

    Place poached eggs on toast before serving.
