Sunny Side Up Egg with Buttered Asparagus

"If you are following our Instagram account, no need to tell you that eggs are huge part of our menus. If I could, I would eat eggs every day. A good way I found to eat them as often as I can, is to mix them with all my other favourite ingredients. HA-HA-HA This time it’s with asparagus, butter and Parmesan cheese. WOW!!! Those four ingredients are simply perfect together!"

  • 3 bunches asparagus, woody ends trimmed and discarded
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • Sea salt and black pepper


  • Step 1

    Meanwhile, in another skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium-low heat. Break the eggs into the melted butter and be careful not to break the yolk. Let cook slowly. When the whites are set, season with the fine sea salt and black ground pepper.

    Divide the asparagus between four plates. Drop an egg on each bunch of asparagus.

  • Step 4

    Pour all the melted butter over the eggs and asparagus. Sprinkle with the fresh grated Parmesan cheese.
