Recipe Swap~ Holiday Favorites

How is it that I always get so lucky with my swaps?! This time, I received Sarah, over at "A Taste of Home Cooking"'s Holiday Favorite Appetizer: Asparagus with Fried Egg and Pecorino (but I used Parmesan). First off, I will say, I made it as an appy for one because my hubby does not eat asparagus... & the thought of an egg on the veg? No way! Oh well, more for ME! Ha ha ha!!! Because this was delicious. When I breakfast out at the diner, I love to order eggs over easy... grab my fork & let the yolk burst & flood over my hash browns, envelope my bacon... soak up into my toast... So this.was.perfect. YUMMY. And please excuse my asparagus, I wanted them as crispy as the edges of the egg! DeLish! Thank you so much Sarah!!!

PS- I gave my potato pancakes because I love to make them for Chanukah (Yes, I am Catholic, lol!)  

Asparagus with Fried Egg and Pecorino
from A Taste of Home Cooking

  • 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends removed 
  • salt and pepper 
  • olive oil 
  • 1 tablespoon butter 
  • 2 eggs 
  • Grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese 
Preheat oven to 350. 

Toss asparagus with salt and pepper and olive oil. Spread on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the asparagus is tender to your liking. 

Meanwhile, heat butter in a small skillet. Add eggs and fry to your liking. 

Remove asparagus from the oven and divide into two bunches. Top each bunch with a fried egg. Grate cheese on top and serve immediately. 


  1. Lish, we have the same feelings about our diner food! I love my eggs over easy too, and you described it beautifully! Love your stories and your blog recipes. Thanks again for sharing all your recipe swaps too.

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed this. I LOVE that the egg yolk mixes with the cheese to make a "sauce" for the asparagus. Yum!!!!

    Thanks for being part of the recipe swap!
