Bacon Wrapped Asparagus and Eggs
This sumptuous breakfast is my personal go-to for a lazy Saturday morning when I'm craving something out of the ordinary. Asparagus wrapped in bacon accompanies runny fried eggs to create a unique combination in this dish. I like to enjoy it with a dollop of sour cream or creme fraiche for additional fat.
4 bacon slices
12 asparagus spears, divided
1 teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt, divided
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 tablespoon butter
Directions Preparing:10 minCooking:20 min
Step 1Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Step 2Wrap one bacon slice around each bundle of three asparagus spears. Place each bundle on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Step 3Sprinkle the garlic, onion powder, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and a pinch of pepper over the bundles.
Step 4Place the tray in the preheated oven. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the bacon crisps.
Step 5In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Crack the eggs in pairs into the skillet. Try to keep the yolks intact.
Step 6Cook the eggs to your desired doneness, about 5 minutes for a runny egg. Season with the remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt and the remaining pepper.
Step 7Remove the asparagus from the oven.
Step 8Remove the eggs from the skillet, placing two eggs atop two bundles of asparagus per serving.
