Last night I thought to myself, “What’s the best way to eat vegetables?” My first response was, “Deep FRIED!” But my second response was, “Covered in MEAT!”
So that’s what I did. I took my asparagus and sandwiched it between proscuitto and fried egg.
Let me take you on that delicious adventure.You will need: As much asparagus as you think you will eat A few slices of proscuitto An egg or 4, depending on how many people you are serving Juice from a lemon 1 Tbsp. shredded parmesan 1 tsp. chopped chives 1 clove of garlic, minced 1/4 tsp. Dijon mustard 3 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
This took me about 5 minutes to prep and cook. Aaaaand it looked like I spent all night long slaving away. This is the intended result…fool your audience.
First, I steamed the asparagus for about 3 minutes. I have a strainer that I put over a boiling pot of water and cover with a pan lid. Again, tricking people into thinking you are fancy is key here.
Ok, while that’s steaming you can toss all of the ingredients (besides the eggs and proscuitto) into a bowl. This will be the dressing topping. I forgot to take a picture of this part, but imagine a bowl full of lemon juice, mustard, chives, and some other stuff. Whisk away!
Your asparagus might be done at this point, but mine needed another minute, so I fried an egg up.
Time for plating.
I put the proscuitto down on a plate. Make a little love-bed for your asparagus to rest on…a love-bed of meat. Just trust me.
This was the original picture:

This was so good I nearly passed out.
Jonathan was so pleased we fist-bumped.
Things are right with the world.
p.s. What’s your favorite way to get your veggies in? I would love to try something not so meat-heavy. 🙂
