Directions To make the skillet: Step 1 Hold the untrimmed end of the asparagus and using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus into thin ribbons (video here). Set aside. Step 2 Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add olive oil and swirl to coat pan. Place asparagus in the pan along with pesto and toss until asparagus is well coated. Step 3 Let asparagus cook for about 1 minute, then create four spaces for the eggs. Crack an egg into each space. Cook until whites are set and yolks are to your desired firmness, 10-15 minutes. If whites are not firming up, cover the pan or heat a small amount of oil in a separate pan and spoon over the egg whites. For the toppings: Step 1 Before serving, sprinkle with the bread crumbs, grated Parmesan, and chili flakes, if desired. Notes: To make homemade bread crumbs, tear pieces of stale or day old bread into pieces. Bake at 425F for about 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden. Let cool slightly and pulse in a food processor or blender. Rate this Recipe Share this Recipe How much did you enjoy this recipe? How much did you enjoy this recipe?
