1.Place eggs in a medium saucepan; add enough hot tap water to just cover eggs; bring to the boil, boil for 3 minutes. Drain eggs; place immediately into a bowl of cold water; cool. Peel eggs; cut into quarters.
2.Meanwhile, melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until golden.
3.Brush asparagus with oil; cook asparagus and ham on a large heated, oiled grill plate (or barbecue or frying pan) over medium heat for 4 minutes, turning occasionally, or until asparagus is tender and ham lightly charred.
4.Place asparagus on a serving plate; top with eggs, ham, garlic breadcrumbs and chives; season.

Cooking eggs is an exact science, so refrigerated eggs will require longer cooking to compensate for their chill. For fried and poached eggs, very fresh eggs are best, however for boiled eggs, slightly older eggs are easier to shell.
