Ingredients

  • 12 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2016

"I love the flavor combination of the eggs, feta, and asparagus but wanted a little more seasoning. The asparagus might have been a little easier to eat if it had been chopped up a little more, rather than the long pieces on top. But overall, I really liked it and I would make it again, particularly since my family liked the dish as well."

"This is such a tasty recipe! For breakfast or for a lighter dinner. I also substituted the green onion for half of a medium red onion and it added some extra flavor."
