Cook the eggs in boiling water for 6 mins, or longer if you prefer them hard-boiled. Add the spring onions for the final 3 mins of cooking. Remove and run both under cold water. When cool enough to handle, pat the spring onions dry and peel the eggs.

Meanwhile, heat ½ tbsp of the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Tip in breadcrumbs and season. Fry for 3-4 mins until crisp and golden, then set aside.

Toss the spring onions with the beans, lemon juice, mustard, red onion, parsley, remaining oil and lettuce. Season and arrange halved boiled eggs on top. Sprinkle with the crumbs and eat straight away.
