I often hear of asparagus and eggs together: Nigella Lawson's asparagus soldiers with soft boiled eggs, asparagus sprinkled with hard boiled eggs, etc. But for some reason I never think to eat them for breakfast, even though it makes perfect sense.
So today's breakfast was Eggs in a Frame - one of my all time favorites. I remembered the few lonely asparagus stalks standing by in the fridge, and it occurred to me that they would go quite nicely with my egg. I sauteéd the spears in olive oil and dressed them liberally with salt and pepper. And I brought out some of last year's tomato jam for something sweet and red.
