INGREDIENTS

  • 8 spear, small (5" long or less) Asparagus
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 large Egg (Whole)
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Meal Flour
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan Cheese (Shredded)
  • 1/8 tsp Garlic
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Prepare a small oven safe casserole or 4-inch by 3-inch dish with a little bit of oil.  Set aside.
  2. Boil the asparagus spears for 2 minutes until tender-crisp.  Drain and run under cold water then pat dry.  Arrange in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Pour cream over the asparagus and then crack two eggs on top.
  4. In a small bowl blend together the almond meal, Parmesan cheese, garlic and black pepper.  Sprinkle over the eggs and place in the oven.  Cook for 5-10 minutes depending upon how you like your eggs cooked.  Longer time will result in a firmer yolk.  The cream will puff over the edges of the eggs and the topping should be golden brown and fragrant.
