Eggs and Asparagus

Preparation Time: 15 min
One Pot Dish: Asparagus


  • 300/350g asparagus, thin and tender
  • 4 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, to taste
  • 4 tbsp of EVO oil or butter


  • Trim the fibrous ends of the asparagus off (where the color becomes a paler shade of green). Hold each asparagus in your hands, and starting to the end find the break point. Then firmly bend and brake them. Throw out the end parts.
  • If the asparagus are thin and tender you don’t need to boil or steam them.
  • Place a large skillet on medium heat, add 4-5 EVO oil spoons. Add the asparagus and turn them until totally coated with oil. Let roast for a few minutes shaking the skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Add a bit of water, reduce heat, cover with a lid and let cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Crash the eggs on the top of the asparagus. season with salt, cover with a lid and let cook until the eggs reached the desired consistency.
  • Transfer the asparagus and egg into a serving plate, top with Parmigiano Reggiano and serve them.

TIPS: If you like a crispier consistency, remove the asparagus from the skillet just before adding the eggs and keep aside.
