I am an egg lover, and will be even more so in a few weeks when the ladies start laying for us. My girls love an egg too so most mornings that’s what we have for breakfast. Sometimes it’s boiled. Sometimes it’s fried. Every time it has to be a goozy (as the girls say). And this morning, for me, it involved fresh asparagus spears dipped in. While they are nothing compared to soldiers dripping in butter, they are a good alternative for a healthy start to the day.
Just bend the ends of the spears until they snap – that’s where they are fresh.
I’m sure there are better ways to cook them, but for me 2 mins on high in the microwave with a splash of cold water in a low bowl does the trick. Still a bit firm…
Don’t you dare skimp on the salt and pepper just because you are trying to be healthy.
One of life’s simple pleasures. Like basil and tomato, or haloumi and mint, asparagus and eggs are just meant to go together.
What’s one of your favourite combos?
