Baked Eggs and Asparagus

Need a new, healthy breakfast idea?  If you’re like me and are a lover of eggs, then this recipe is a good way to switch up your morning meal while also getting in a serving of vegetables.   60becc443498900bf0927e22732465a1

This recipe, in my opinion, is super easy to make. Even if I have other stuff to do to get ready for my day, the timing of this meal works perfectly with my morning routine .  When I make this meal my routine is I generally get up and turn the oven on, crack the eggs in a bowl to get to room temperature, let my dog out or crawl back into bed for about 15 minutes, then start cooking once the oven is ready.

This meal is a fantastic meatless option, however, I sprinkled bacon bits on top of mine.  Toasted prosciutto is also delicious.

Ingredients:

-2 eggs, room temperature

-8 pieces of asparagus, snapped into pieces

-salt

-pepper

-oil

-parmesan cheese, freshly grated

-optional: onions, bacon.

Directions:

1. Turn oven to 400 degrees F.  Take out eggs and crack them in a small bowl.

*Note: If you’re cooking bacon, lay bacon out on a foil-lined cookie sheet.  Cook for 15 minutes starting with the oven cool and set for 400 degrees F.

2. Coat gratin dish with olive oil and fill dish with asparagus pieces and chopped onion (optional).  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3. Bake asparagus for 10 minutes and remove from oven.  Slide eggs from the bowl on top of the asparagus in the gratin dish.  Bake another 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes the white of the egg should barely look set.

4. Sprinkle cheese over eggs and asparagus.  Cook another 3-4 minutes.

Here’s how mine turned out!

ENJOY!
