Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Herbs

Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Herbs

A couple of mornings ago, I woke up completely restless.  I wasn't quite sure what to have for breakfast and was not in the mood for my usual go-to morning meal which is oatmeal and blueberries.  In fact, I wasn't all that hungry since I haven't been feeling well,  I decided to pour myself a cup of coffee and look over my reading list.  That's when I came across an amazing recipe posted by One Perfect Bite.  

This recipe was just what I've been craving.  I read over the details and realized I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I just substituted for what I did have.  This isn't about personal taste, it was truly about making do with what I had.  Thank goodness for the herbs in my garden and the asparagus we just purchased on the weekend.

While I'm very pleased with the taste of my breakfast, I still plan to make Mary's recipe without any substitutes.

Thanks for your friendship and making my day, Mary!  

Here's my version ....

Bunch of Asparagus (cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 small cooking Onion (diced)
2 Green Onions (finely sliced)
8 Eggs
6 Tbsp of Herb Mixture (Basil, Cilantro, Parsley - finely chopped)
1/2 Cup Milk
Handful of Grated Swiss Emmenthal Cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix and add grated Emmenthal Cheese


  1. Yum! Looks delicious, I LOVE asparagus! What a great breakfast!

  2. This looks fantastic. The only problem with cooking with asparagus is that I love it so much on its own! I think I'd make an exception for this dish, though - it's so simple and I love all the flavors.

  3. I'm so glad you enjoyed the eggs, Ellen. I love the recipe and use it often when asparagus is in season. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
