  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon dried onion seasoning or 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese


  • Wash and dry asparagus; cut into 1 inch pieces, discarding woody ends.
  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat; saute asparagus and onion until asparagus is crisp-tender, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Pour in water; add salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Remove cover; break eggs into a small bowl, one at a time, and slide out on top of asparagus (try not to break yolks).
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, or until the eggs are set as you prefer.
  • Eat alone or serve over buttered toast.
