Quick & Easy Asparagus with Eggs & Mustard Sauce
The entire point of this delicious recipe is to make it an incredibly fast and simple recipe to prepare. Thus, the proportions for this recipe are flexible, and to your taste.
Ingredients (Serves 2):
1 lb Asparagus (approx: 1/2 lb per person)
1-2 T Oil (or butter)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Eggs (1-2 per person)
3T Grey Poupon mustard (or whatever mustard is your favorite)
2T mayonnaise or sour cream
1tsp lemon juice
Paprika or hot sauce (or both) to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Cook asparagus in preferred style (we drizzle the asparagus with oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper and roast it in the oven at 425 until it is bright green and tender–about 10-15 minutes)
Mix mustard, mayonnaise/sour cream, lemon juice and spices
Cook eggs–we prefer over easy, although poaching is also delicious.

Cheesy Easy Asparagus Eggs: add parmesan or other favorite cheese to asparagus before roasting.
Spicy Easy Asparagus Eggs: use other spices (Old Bay, Cajun, Montreal spice) on asparagus before roasting
