This was just what I needed today. I was finally alone at home - nice and quiet - and decided to treat myself with brunch before the kids were back from grandma's. It's one of my all-time favorite things to have for brunch. It's easy to make, but somehow feels exciting and special. There is nothing better than dipping salty and meaty asparagus into a rich and tasty egg yolk.
all dressed up...
...and ready to go.
Recipe (makes for 2 people):
4 organic/cage-free eggs
5-10 strips of prosciutto
1 tsp of olive oil
salt and peer
cayenne pepper (optional)
grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Wrap each asparagus with a slice of prosciutto and coat them with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake them in the oven at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Bake longer if you prefer crispy prosciutto.
Boil water and add a pinch of salt. Boil eggs in hot water for 8 minutes. Take eggs out of the pan and cool with cold water.
Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper or whatever else you like on asparagus and eggs : )
