Baked Eggs with Bacon & Asparagus

Recipe by Simple Bites

  • 2 pieces bacon
  • 1/4 bunch asparagus
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 sprigs thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Wash asparagus thoroughly, as they may be gritty, and use a vegetable peeler to remove the bottom two-thirds of peel.
  • Lay the bacon onto a baking sheet and place in the oven for about 8 minutes or until crispy.
  • Remove pan from oven and carefully transfer the bacon to a paper towel.
  • Drain off most of the bacon fat, leaving about a tablespoon in the pan.
  • Add the asparagus to the same pan and shake it around gently to coat the vegetables in grease.
  • Arrange asparagus in a single layer and sprinkle it with lemon zest, thyme leaves, and pepper.
  • Roast asparagus for about 8 minutes or until it begins to soften.
  • Remove pan from the oven and gently crack the eggs on top of the asparagus.
  • Return the dish to the oven and roast another 4 to 5 minutes or until eggs have reached desired consistency.
  • Return bacon to the pan. Serve.
