take my word for it wednesday.. an open faced egg, bacon and asparagus sandwich is amazing..



i love asparagus.. i can grill an entire bunch and eat it by myself it tastes like candy to me.. shell however thinks its awful and that just perplexes me.. how can you not like aspragus.. when i get home from the store i cut off a small layer of the woody end and put in a glass or vase with water until i am ready to use.. if not that day i will put in the fridge for a day or two but i really try to use my asparagus the day i buy it.. one of my favorite ways to cook it is simply lay an even layer on a foil lined baking sheet, drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper and bake at 400 until tender.. (and some a little crispy).. *sigh* i seriously love love asparagus..


another of my favorites is prosciutto wrapped asparagus..what could make asparagus any better than it already is?? add prosciutto or bacon.. yes and please and thank you.. and today i took the best of the best of everything.. i grilled some asparagus and ciabatta bread... added some bacon and an egg.. how could this not be the best sandwich ever!!


i had left over seasoned zesty dipping oil from a party from the night before, along with the bread and aspragus.. making great use of left overs.. but anyway i brushed my bread with the zesty dipping oil and wow did it give it the punch it needed.. perfect amount of spice.. so good.. {i don't have the recipe for the dipping oil because i bought it but believe you me i will duplicate it soon and post it was so amazing.. i will also post pictures and recipes from the party soon..}


open faced egg, asparagus & bacon sandwich

prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
servings: 2

ingredients:

2 slices of ciabatta or sour dough bread
4 slices of bacon , cooked {i cooked mine the easy way in the oven.. see how here}
12 stalks of cooked aspragus, {i cooked mine like this here, prosciutto wrapped asparagus and someone had eaten all the prosciutto, um me, so i had just left over stalks which worked out perfect for this..}
spicy olive oil {or regular}
2 eggs
butter
salt and pepper

brush your bread with spicy olive oil and heat up a grill pan over medium high heat.. cook bread on the griddle until golden brown on both sides.. while its cooking add your aspragus to heat back up.. when they are almost done melt your butter in a non stick skillet over medium heat and cook your egg until the white part has set up.. now if you don't like sunny side up eggs or over soft by all means cook it until your happy with the yolk.. {i recommend sunny side up because the yolk is what makes it so yummy}  to assemble add 2 slices of bacon to each slice of bread then add 6 aspragus stalks to each and top with your egg.. add a little salt and pepper.. and serve immediately.. it's simply delightful!!

 
enjoy and get cook'n!!
