Ingredients

1 egg
8 asparagus spears, hard ends cut off
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash the asparagus spears and place in a baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus and sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Roast asparagus for 10-12 minutes.
  4. While asparagus is cooking, heat a nonstick pan on medium high heat on the stovetop. Crack the egg onto the heated pan.
  5. Cook the egg until the clear part of the egg starts to bubble, then flip the egg using a spatula.
  6. Fold the edges of the egg so it looks like a square (may require a few folds).
  7. When the egg is cooked to the consistency you like, remove it from the heat and set the pan aside.
  8. Remove asparagus from oven, and place the egg on top of the asparagus.
