Asparagus and Eggs {Secret Recipe Club Reveal}

Nov 04

Most of my meals are pretty Americana, but I am actually 100% Italian. No, I don’t speak any Italian, but my mom has one amazing recipe for homemade sauce :) When I was paired up with Italian Cooking in the Midwest, I was pretty excited, so I could make something more authentic.

When I saw the post for Asparagus and Eggs, I knew I had to make it! It really is a perfect brunch dish! We made it for dinner, but I know I will absolutely make it again. It was so easy, but the flavors were great. I substituted prosciutto for the pancetta, and it was the perfect substitution for me. You could also use bacon. And if you wanted to make it vegetarian, you could easily do it and just ignore the meat ingredients.

Asparagus and Eggs -- Food Ramblings

I’ve bookmarked some other recipes from PolaM of Italian Cooking, so expect some more Italian recipes coming from Food Ramblings!

Asparagus and Eggs -- Food Ramblings

Ingredients

  • 12 oz to a pound of asparagus
  • Package of sliced prosciutto (a least ½ slice for each piece of asparagus)
  • 6 eggs
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cook time: 12-15 minutes
  • Servings: 2-4
  • Difficulty: easy

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Boil small pot of water.

Prepare asparagus by washing and cutting off ends. Keep ends together with a rubberband or string.

When water boils, place asparagus in the water standing up. Cook for 8 minutes. We don’t want the asparagus to get too soggy.

Meanwhile, spray pie plate with cooking spray.

When asparagus is cooked, wrap each piece in prosciutto and place in pie plate. Sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese. Bake for 5 minutes.

Take pie plate out of over and crack 6 eggs around edges of pie plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and more parmesan cheese. Note- do not sprinkle salt over prosciutto; it already has enough salt built in.

Bake another 10-12 minutes until the eggs are cooked to your liking. I wanted mine cooked medium.

Enjoy with a couple of slices of toasted bread or an English muffin.

    So you don’t mix up the eggs? Do all the egg whites cook through??? this looks awesome

    • Elizabeth Nov 04 at 2:56 pm Reply

      No mixing– just crack them and sprinkle some salt and pepper on them. The whites cooked through and the yolks were cooked over medium. Perfect for dipping. You could cook the whole casserole longer if you wanted the yolks cooked more. SO easy!

    I think that asparagus is my favorite vegetable ever. We get pounds and pounds of them from the local farmers in the spring. There is nothing better! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

  26. Danielle @ We Have It All Nov 04 at 11:11 pm Reply

    YUM! I never added asparagus to eggs, sounds good though!

  27. Danielle Nov 04 at 11:24 pm Reply

    This looks like a very tantalizing dish, I will have to give it a try – especially since asparagus is my favorite vegetable :)

  28. Stacie Connerty Nov 04 at 11:36 pm Reply

    I am not a big asparagus fan, but my kids love it! I will have to try to make this for them. They can eat eggs at any time of the day. We actually had them for dinner tonight. I want to try the pumpkin pie bars or the Snickerdoodle cookies for myself.

  29. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell Nov 05 at 12:07 am Reply

    I never would have thought of that combination. I only like asparagus tips, but I’ll bet the kids would enjoy this.

    I don’t eat eggs or asparagus so this was a funny recipe for me. My family members all like both of these things so I might try this out for them because it does look good.

  34. Emerald Nov 05 at 9:47 am Reply

    I usually hate asparagus but with this recipe I may actually tolerate them.

  35. Debi@TheSpringMount6Pack Nov 05 at 11:26 am Reply

    YUM> I love asparagus. I love to roast them, but I like it in eggs too.

  36. This sounds awesome!
