Ingredients
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus. Always choose bright green colored asparagus with tightly closed tips.
  • 4 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
  • A knob of butter
  • Olive oil
Instructions
  1. Thoroughly wash the asparagus
  2. Take each asparagus one by one, hold it by the top and bottom and bend it till it snaps. It will break where the edible part ends. Keep the bottom ends for making homemade asparagus soup
  3. Place the top ends in a pot, cover with slightly salted water, and boil for about 5 minutes depending on how big they are. Don't over cook them or they'll lose their flavor and fall apart
  4. Take a frying pan and add a little olive oil and butter, heat till it starts to sizzle
  5. Fry two eggs
  6. When they are almost cooked to your liking, add half the cooked asparagus to the same frying pan on the side of the eggs and toss it in the oil and butter. Sprinkle everything with Parmesan and fry a little. The flavors will all merge together beautifully. Try not to break the yolk of the eggs
  7. Season to taste
  8. Place on a dish, sprinkle a little more Parmesan on top and serve immediately
  9. Repeat with the other two eggs and the rest of the asparagus. You could do them all at the same time, but I prefer this way as it is easier to manage.
