Step by Step Method

Step 1

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Chop off the hard bottom part of the asparagus, can also peel the bottom part of the asparagus stems with a potato peeler. Tie them in a bundle with kitchen string. Stand the bundle in the water to just barely cover the green tops and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the tops begin to bend. Remove from the pan and untie them; arrange on a platter and keep them warm.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a non-stick pan and fry the eggs sunny-side up (reserving the butter left in the pan). Arrange the eggs on top of the asparagus. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and the Parmesan. Sprinkle the reserved butter of which the eggs were fried over the top of the asparagus. Serve immediately.

More stars please! What a great flavourful brekky for dinner! I made poached eggs instead of fried and they looked like doves on grass! Used Grana Padano for the parmesan. Beautiful presentation. I am not a bread eater so having eggs on veg is perfect for me. DH thoroughly enjoyed his dinner too! Thank you for sharing another keeper ForeverMama! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
