Reinvent breakfast with this filling and healthy egg casserole that is high in protein and light on the stomach. Asparagus not only adds a beautiful color to the dish, but also a creamy texture and fresh flavor to play off the basil leaves and light pesto sauce. Layer your breakfast with salty, savory, zesty seasonings. Perfect for any morning or Sunday brunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus (green)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 3 tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 1 lemon
  • 50 grams smoked salmon (heart, diced)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices bread
  • pesto

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
  2. Wash the green asparagus, cut the edges and remove 10 cm from the bottom of each stem.
  3. Place the asparagus tips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle a tablespoon of olive oil and some coarse salt on top.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Mince the stems with a knife.
  6. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a skillet and saute the asparagus over high heat, stirring regularly. Add salt and then remove from heat.
  7. Add the basil, creme fraiche, and zest of half a lemon.
  8. Separate this mixture into two jars, ramekins, or casseroles. Stick 3 cooked asparagus tips in each of them so that they stick out of the top.
  9. Place the diced salmon on top of the asparagus mixture and gently break one egg on top of the salmon in each dish.
  10. Cook for at least 10 minutes, until the white has solidified.
  11. Toast the slices of bread and spread pesto on the warm toasts, then cut them into strips.
  12. Serve the casserole on a plate with the toasts and the asparagus tips.

Okay, it sounded a bit weird at first, but man the flavors are over the moon. You won't believe how good eggs, salmon and asparagus taste when paired together with some seasonings. You must try this one.
