Just looking at this photograph makes me want to eat it for dinner again right now...and we just had this for dinner tonight! This is a great simple dish for a light supper or a sophisticated brunch. Aren't they beautiful? I bet this recipe would also work well with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, but why complicate a good thing.
Parmesan Toasts with Eggs & Asparagus
- 4 slices of thick crusty bread
- 12 stems of asparagus spears
- 4 slices of Canadian bacon or prosciutto
- 4 large eggs
- Parmesan cheese
- Butter, softened
- Olive oil
- Fresh cracked pepper
Step 2: Fry Canadian bacon in a frying pan over medium-high heat until browned. Set aside.
Step 3: Spread butter generously on bread. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Broil for 1 minute until lightly browned.
Step 4: Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in the frying pan used for bacon. Fry eggs one at a time until over easy, sprinkled with salt and pepper.
On a plate, layer prepared toast, Canadian bacon, 3 asparagus stalks and one egg.
