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 crème fraîche
1 lemon
50 grams smoked salmon (heart, diced)
2 eggs
2 slices bread
pesto

Directions

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