Asparagus and Cheese on Toast Eggy Bread Combo

If you’re partial to the occasional slice of eggy bread for your breakfast or cheese on toast for your tea then you’ll love this asparagus combo that blends both together beautifully!

Perfect for a weekend brunch or even as a mid-week supper. 

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

You’ll need

250g asparagus tips
4 slices crusty bread
150g grated cheese; cheddar, gruyere, red Leicester or a combination!
2 beaten eggs
Sea salt & black pepper
1 tbsp chopped chives

What to do

Preheat the oven to 180

Trim the asparagus tips and blanch briefly in boiling water, refresh in cold water.

Lightly toast the bread in the toaster and leave it to cool.

Mix the grated cheese into the beaten eggs and season.

Divide the cheese and egg mixture between the four slices of bread and spread to cover up to the edges.

Put the bread on a baking sheet and bake for five minutes. Take the baking sheet out and push the asparagus spears into the hot cheese mixture. Put the tray back in the oven for another five minutes or until the cheese is puffed up and bubbling.

Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve.
