Notes

  • Use more or less eggs than six, if desired. 
  • Substitute butter or coconut oil for olive oil, if needed. 
  • Do not overcook the asparagus to prevent mushy asparagus.  Sauté until crisp, and then simmer until fork tender.   The Baked Asparagus and Eggs will continue to cook in the oven. 
  • Grated or Shredded Parmesan cheese can be used. I typically have the cheaper, grated version in the refrigerator so I use it. 
  • Use less or more Parmesan cheese to your own taste preference. 
  • Don't like your egg yolks runny? Just modify the cooking time for your favorite style of eggs - runny, partially runny or completely cooked.
