Prosciutto wrapped asparagus gives the best of this summer produce with perfectly roasted asparagus, flavorful prosciutto, and a creamy poached egg. Tons of flavor with only a handful of ingredients!
You guys, you guys, you guyyyyysss! I poached my first egg today!!! It was so exciting, and nerve wracking, and I was 99% sure I was going to mess it up like 17 times before I got it right, but then this beautiful, perfectly cooked poached egg came out on my very first try, and I squealed like a little girl, and then immediately took 700 pictures, and came here to tell you about it.
I’m pretty sure I will never eat an egg cooked any other way again. A perfectly soft white with a creamy, drippy yolk…uggghhh I die. I used Eggland’s Best eggs, and they worked out great!. Compared to regular eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs have 25% less saturated fat, 1o x more vitamin E, 4 x more vitamin D and 3 x more vitamin B12. Also, I may just be biased, but I think they make bomb poached eggs. If you’d like more information on their nutrition benefits, you can check out their nutrition info.
Okay so let’s talk about this little combo. I am a huge fan of roasted asparagus. In fact, I will only eat it roasted or grilled. Steamed asparagus? Gag. I need those crispy, crunchy bites on the end. Asparagus is usually my go-to veggie. It’s so easy to make, and it comes out perfect every time. A little olive oil, salt and lemon pepper and you’re good to go.
I roasted my asparagus like normal, then just divided into two bundles, and wrapped each with half a slice of prosciutto and topped each bundle with a poached egg. Insanely easy (who ever thought you could say that about a recipe involving a poached egg! But it was!), and so delicious. Perfect for a side dish, appetizer or even breakfast!
- 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (or less--just a light drizzle)
- pinch salt
- pinch lemon pepper
- 1 slice prosciutto, sliced length-wise
- 2 poached eggs
- Preheat oven to 400. Lay asparagus in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Add salt and lemon pepper. Roast until lightly browned and ends are crispy, about 20 minutes.
- Divide into two bundles and wrap each bundle with prosciutto. Top with a poached egg. Serve immediately.
