Seasonal, easy and inexpensive — what more can you ask for? This is sort of like brunch for dinner and cannot get much more simple. Plus having bacon on a weeknight will make this meal a crowd-pleaser for all.
Skillet Asparagus, Eggs, and Bacon
Asparagus (you should be able to find great looking, fresh asparagus all over the place this time of year!)
Bacon (I used good Wright’s bacon but you probably could even use turkey bacon?)
Minced Garlic (1-2 cloves, 1 teaspoon)
Salt and Pepper
Directions: Cook bacon (Julia does in skillet making this a one pot meal; Caroline bakes at 400 for 15-18 minutes) Rinse and trim asparagus. Add asparagus to skillet that either has a small bit of remaining bacon grease (pour out most of it) or add a small amount of grease from cookie sheet of oven bacon. Add salt and pepper. Cover and let cook/steam for 5-7 minutes. Once asparagus looks bright green, add frozen green peas (IF you are having them) then add minced garlic (1-2 cloves), and give it one last good stir. Crack your eggs right over the top of your asparagus. Add a splash of water and cover until cooked medium (5 minutes-ish). Plate and add any fresh herbs that you might like and you are done!! Enjoy!!
