Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) asparagus
  2. teaspoon minced garlic or 1 clove garlic, crushed
  3. cup (60 ml) olive oil
  4. cup (50 g) grated Parmesan cheese
  5. 8 eggs

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the broiler.

Snap the bottoms off the asparagus where they break naturally.

Put the asparagus in a microwaveable casserole dish or a glass pie plate.

Add a couple of tablespoons of water and cover.

(Use plastic wrap or a plate to cover a pie plate.

) Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes.

While the asparagus is cooking, stir the garlic into the olive oil.

When the asparagus is done, drain it.

If you have 4 single-serving oven-proof dishes long enough to hold asparagus, they're ideal for this recipe? divide the asparagus between the 4 dishes.

If not, you'll need to use a rectangular glass baking dish.

Arrange the asparagus in 4 groups in the baking dish.

Whether you're using the individual dishes or the single baking dish, drizzle each serving of asparagus with the garlic and olive oil.

Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and divide the cheese between the 4 servings.

Put the asparagus under the broiler, about 4 inches (10 cm) from low heat.

Let it broil for 4 to 5 minutes.

While the asparagus is broiling, fry the eggs to your liking.

Either use your biggest skillet to do them all at once or divide them between two skillets.

When the Parmesan is lightly golden, take the asparagus out of the broiler.

If you've cooked it in one baking dish, use a big spatula to carefully transfer each serving of asparagus to a plate.

Top each serving of asparagus with 2 fried eggs and serve.
