Want a really easy, light, healthy, elegant appetizer that will impress your dinner guests?
The poached egg and the oozy yolk serve as a sauce for your asparagus and the combination of flavors is divine.
Also, eggs are a really cheap source of protein so I love incorporating them into my dinner party menus. This dish probably comes up to around 2$ or less, since a bunch of asparagus that will do for 4 people costs around $4, and eggs cost around $5 for a dozen.
It is a perfect start to a meal, or can even be incorporated into a brunch if you like!
If you want to get fancy you could make a hollondaise or a red pepper coulis, but I like to keep it simple with a bit of salt and pepper.
