Egg and Asparagus Sandwich

Print Friendly

This is a tasty and satisfying breakfast sandwich. There are only a few ingredients, which makes for an easy meal to create. Although it only serves one so you’ll need to make more if you have company.

The ingredients include parmesan cheese, asparagus, a fried egg, and toast. Plus, you may add a little seasoning or sauces of your choosing. The savory flavor in fresh shaved parmesan is a great combination with the mellow, earthy taste of asparagus. These two compliment each other well. The fried egg is a nice touch and lends itself to the breakfast category. When you layer these three ingredients in two pieces of toast, it makes for a wonderful sandwich.

This recipe only takes about 5 minutes to make. It’s easy, delicious, and just a little bit different. You can get creative with your sauces or seasonings. The recipe recommends salt and pepper to taste. However, if you read the bottom, it also says to add your own… One of the recommendations is to try hollandaise sauce. This type of sauce would be perfect for a sandwich like this, as it is often paired with asparagus. However, there are a variety of sauces that have the potential to spruce of this sandwich. Get creative; try out a variety of seasonings like cayenne pepper, etc. Try different sauces, like a garlic sauce. This sandwich will take on new and different flavors.

With this recipe you will have a dairy element; plus you’ll get your morning toast, but that’s not all. You’ll also get an extra dose of nutrients. Asparagus is packed full. There are vitamins A, C, E, and K. Also, asparagus has fiber, folate, and chromium. It’s also full of antioxidants.

Try out this dish to add a little something unique to the morning routine. Enjoy the rich flavors of parmesan and mellow tastes of asparagus. This is deliciously “woven” into two slices of grilled toast and centered with a fried egg.
