Roasted Asparagus Salad with Fried Eggs, Parmesan and Carmelized Candy Onions
This entry is part 4 of 8 in the series Farm Sharing


This recipe uses a bunch of different farm share ingredients.  It may sound a little strange, but IT IS DELICIOUS! If you try it, you will NOT be disappointed.

The runny egg yolks are the perfect compliment to the asparagus.  It’s a light, quick and healthy dinner perfect for the summer or anytime!

In fact, my husband says he would eat it every night if he could.




Here is what you will need:

 (Serves 2)


About 10 Asparagus stalks

Red or green leaf lettuce

4 eggs

1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

2 Candy onions (or leeks) white and light green parts only, sliced thin vertically

Balsamic Vinegar

Olive oil

Salt and pepper



Step 1:    Snap off the ends of the asparagus, (you can peel them if you wish, but it isn’t necessary) drizzle them with a little bit of olive oil, season with salt and pepper and put under the broiler for about 4 minutes, turning once. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.



Step 2:    Place sliced candy onions (or leeks) in a large pan with a little bit of olive oil and saute over medium heat until golden brown and carmelized- about 10-15 minutes.



Step 3:  In a nonstick pan, melt some butter, and fry eggs gently to over easy.  You want the yolks to be runny.


Step 4:  Arrange some lettuce leaves on 2 plates, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Put the asparagus on top of that, then the eggs, parmesan cheese and finally the carmelized onions.  Season with Salt and pepper and ENJOY!!
