Heat the butter in a pan, add the asparagus and cook until soft and slightly brown. Set aside and keep warm.

Fill a medium pot with water until 3/4 full. Add vinegar and heat until simmering. Swirl the water with a spoon until a whirlpool effect is achieved. Crack an egg into a teacup, drop the egg into the water and cook for 3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towel.

For the hollandaise sauce:

In a blender, blitz together the egg yolks and lemon juice, then slowly add the melted butter until the sauce is thick and glossy. Season to taste.

To assemble:
Divide muffin halves between 4 plates, top with asparagus and eggs, and spoon over hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with black pepper.
