Hey hey friends! I wanted to share with you a quick and easy healthy breakfast recipe. This Baked Eggs and Asparagus is going to give you a huge amount of protein and good carbs that you need, especially after a great work out. You can also make enough of this to feed your family or friends for a super duper brunch. You don’t have to just eat this at breakfast but any time of the day.
Sometimes when I am over at my favorite place, Costco, they have huge bags of asparagus. When you have that much asparagus you get pretty creative in your meals. It is asparagus here, there and everywhere. I happen to love it but I think I am the only one who does.
Since I had all of this asparagus, I am going to share a bunch of asparagus recipes. All easy of course, because you know I am not one to make terribly long recipes.
For the Baked Eggs and Asparagus recipe you will need:
- 10 stalks of Asparagus
- 4 Eggs
- Cheese of choice (if you are not Primal, you can skip the cheese)
- Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
If you have a cast iron skillet, go ahead and get that out. I have this awesome cast iron skillet that has grill marks on the bottom. That is what I used for this recipe. But even if you don’t have cast iron, then use a large skillet or sauté pan. It has to be one that can also go in the oven.
Wash and cut the asparagus in about 2 inch segments.
Place some ghee, maybe a tablespoon or so in the skillet.
Place the asparagus into the skillet. Cook the asparagus over medium heat until the asparagus is a becoming a bit soft.
Crack 4 eggs on top of the asparagus.
Place the skillet into the oven and cook for about 8-10 minutes or so. It is going to depend on how well done you would like your eggs.
Take out the skillet and add on your cheese of choice if you like….or not…..
Add salt and pepper to the top and serve up warm.
Makes 4 servings.
Looks delicious, doesn’t it?
What is so great about this recipe, and if you are a fan of cheese, you can change up the flavor profile. Throw some Feta, Goat Cheese or Mozzarella on top. Those are my favorite cheeses.
