Ingredients

  • 4-6 slender spears of asparagus, woody ends removed (see tip above). I recommend spears about the size of a hot glue stick, not the super skinny or fat types sometimes available.
    Meat
  • 2 eggs
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
    Produce
  • 2 teaspoons ghee, butter, or light olive oil
    Oil, Vinegar, Salad Dressing
  • Optional additions: red pepper flakes, diced ham, bacon crumbles, sausage crumbles, diced parsley, sliced cherry tomatoes, sliced green onions, and/or grated cheese.
    Spices and Seasonings
  • Sea salt to taste

Steps

  • Turn oven on to low broil and make sure the oven rack is 4-6 inches from the burner.In a small 6 inch oven proof pan (I love my cast iron!), place the fat of your choice and put into the oven to melt and preheat while you gather your next ingredients.When your fat is melted and warm, swirl it about, then place your asparagus in the pan.Toss to coat the spears evenly, then push them off to one side.Crack your eggs in and any additional toppings of choice.Squeeze a generous amount of lemon juice over the asparagus, then add your sea salt to taste.Broil (with the oven door open!) for about 2-3 minutes. How long you cook will depend on the size of your egg and the thickness of your spears. WATCH IT CAREFULLY AT 2 MINUTES, it goes from perfect to over done quickly! I like my egg molten, so I am usually around the 2½ minute mark, just under.
