Eggs with Feta and Asparagus

Start your fancy breakfast with Carol Heine's Eggs with Feta and Asparagus. From her kitchen in New Prague, Minnesota, Carol whipped up this dish because of an abundance of asparagus, and now it's become a staple. “We always have more than enough asparagus for the two of us,” she writes. “I also enjoy sharing extra with family and friends.”

    Quite tasty. The only difference I made was scrambling the eggs.

    I've been making this recipe since it appeared in 2007 - it is probably my daughter's favourite meal (and since she's going to university next year - it's easy enough for her to make herself) - totally excellent!
