Eat veg at breakfast…?
Absolutely, with this easy dish featuring fresh asparagus and eggs! Remember, green = good, and even if you cook for just one, eating fresh and well is possible.
Who needs bread, when you can use a healthy, green veg in its place! Steam, pan-fry or broil asparagus for a few minutes – until tender crisp, or done to your liking.
Initially planning to poach the eggs, I felt a craving for olive oil fried – with yummy, crispy edges. However you cook yours, do keep the yolks soft, for nature’s perfect, natural sauce. Unless of course you cringe at the thought, cook them the way you like them. That’s the joy of cooking for yourself!
Now for the bacon. Everybody loves it and although it’s used here in moderation, it’s salty essence really comes through. Especially if you’re not a big meat-eater, using it as an accent rather than a main ingredient, gives you the best of both worlds. Chopped pancetta would also be heavenly!
Fresh, light, yet bursting with flavours & goodness of vegetables, Asparagus with Bacon & Eggs is excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Eating your veg has never been tastier, or easier~
