240 calories per serving 


40 asparagus, average size   800 g
4 eggs size large    
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
1/4 cup butter, unsalted   60 g
4 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated   12 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 230ºC/450ºF.
  2. Prepare the asparagus. Lay the asparagus on an oiled baking tray. Coat thoroughly with oil, then add salt.
  3. Cook until the asparagus change colour, about 8-10 min, depending on their size. Shake the tray a couple times during cooking, so that the asparagus will grill evenly. Arrange on the warmed plates and keep warm.
  4. While the asparagus are in the oven, heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet, taking care to keep the yolks intact. Cook them sunny-side up about 4-5 min until the whites are firm but the yolks are still runny. Add salt and pepper before carefully sliding one egg on top of each asparagus serving.
  5. Grate the Parmesan cheese over each plate and serve.
