Grilled Asparagus with Poached Egg and Toasty Crumbles

Category: Eggs, Healthy Recipes, Vegetarian, Asparagus

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Tablespoon toasted bread crumbs
  • 6-8 stalks fresh asparagus with the tough stalk trimmed
  • 1 soft-cooked, poached egg
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


1. To prepare bread crumbs, use a food processor or blender to tear a slice of stale bread into small pieces the size of oatmeal. Saute in a skillet over medium heat with enough butter to barely coat crumbs and give a nice crunchy brown crust.

2. Lightly spray or brush asparagus with olive oil. Grill over medium-high heat until spears begin to turn bright green, turning once or twice as they cook. Can be done with a grill pan on the stove, an outdoor grill or even under a broiler. Remove to serving plate.

3. Poach egg , leaving the yolk soft (see links at the end of this post if you aren”™t sure how to do this) and carefully place on top of asparagus. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and top with toasted bread crumbs.
