Pesto Eggs and Asparagus


     The Sugar Snaps are big fans of eggs and have recently developed a reverence for asparagus too.  So, I decided to combine their two loves and it was quite a hit.  The nice thing is that it is really easy and would be a great brunch dish.  The asparagus really adds to the flavor and appearance. 







You will need:
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Jack/cheddar blend cheese
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 4 Tablespoons of prepared pesto
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 20 Thin spears of asparagus
  • 1 Cup of prepared salsa to serve on the side (if desired)
  • Blender
  • Large Fry Pan
  • cooking spray
  • Oven
  • 9x13 baking pan

     Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine eggs, cheese, 3 tablespoons of pesto and milk in the blender on high speed until it is frothy and the cheese is indistinguishable by sight. Spray the 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray and add the egg mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until partially set. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of prepared pesto and the tablespoon of olive oil in the fry pan over medium heat until the pesto is just melted. Then add the asparagus and cook until it is bright green (about three minutes).  Pull the pan out of the oven with the partially set egg mixture and place the asparagus side by side in the pan. Return to the oven and bake until set for about 7-8 minutes (and a toothpick in the center comes out clean.) Remove from the oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and return to the oven for a few more minutes until melted. Serve with salsa if desired.


Ryder loves asparagus and ate all of it first. 
 
 
     I hope you enjoy trying this recipe.  You could experiment with different veggies for variety.  If you try it, I'd love to hear about your experience.    As always, I welcome your comments.
