  1. 4 large pasture raised eggs
  2. 2 whole-wheat English muffins
  3. 1/2 cup (8 fl oz) lemon yogurt
  4. 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 fl oz white wine vinegar
  7. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  8. 12 spear, medium (5-1/4" to 7" long) Asparagus, raw (you can substitute with 1/2 cup spinach leaves)
  9. 4 ounces lean turkey bacon
  1. Combine lemon yogurt, dry mustard and salt in a small saucepan and whisk gently on low heat until warm and smooth. Remove from heat.
  2. In a medium skillet, cook the turkey bacon until slightly browned on both sides, about 3 minutes.
  3. Fill a large skillet with 2 inches of water and 1 tablespoon vinegar. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat to a low temperature where the water is still consistently boiling but very low; crack one egg into a small dish and gently pour it into the skillet, doing the same for each additional egg, one by one. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until desired doneness, spooning hot water over the yolk until slightly opaque. When the timer rings,carefully remove eggs from the water with a SLOTTED spoon, letting the excess water drain away.
  4. After eggs and turkey are prepared, toast English muffins. Place a toasted muffin half on each plate with a piece of turkey on top.
  5. Place on top of turkey; drizzle yogurt sauce over the top.
  6. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; add asparagus and cook until slightly tender. Serve with eggs.
