Roasted asparagus and Scramble eggs - -10/16/10

Roasted asparagus is an easy  side dish that compliments any meal!  The roasted asparagus is flavorful and has a crisp-tender texture.  It is easy and fast to prepare and the color and taste complement well with any meat main dishes.  Tonight I am cooking a very light meal so I am serving the roasted asparagus with scrambled eggs.  Scrambled eggs are a classic but can be surprising difficult to master.  The key is in the texture.  To make them creamy you will need to cook them slowly over low heat. 

Melted parmesan is a nice addition to the roasted asparagus.

Preparation work..



1 bunch of asparagus

olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

grated parmesan 

Scrambled eggs

6 eggs

2 tablespoons of milk of heavy cream

salt and pepper to taste

Clean the asparagus. Trim the woody ends from the asparagus, usually about 1 1/2 inches.

Spread the asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Drizzle the olive oil and rub it on with your hands to coat thoroughly. 

Preheat the oven at 450 degrees and bake the asparagus for about 8 minutes.  Remove the asparagus from the oven and sprinkle a handful of shaved parmesan.

Put the tray back in the oven for about 5 to 10 minutes or until...

..the parmesan has formed a crust.  Remove the tray from the oven and let it rest a bit. 


Scrambled eggs 

Crack 5 to 6 eggs in a bowl.  Add a dash of pepper, salt, and cream.  Beat the eggs with a fork until well combined. Heat a skillet over low heat .  Melt some butter or oil and pour the beaten eggs into the skillet.

Let the eggs cook until they begin to set around the skillet.  Stir and fold the eggs in the center of the skillet. 

Continue cooking until the eggs are the consistency you desire.  I like my eggs to be on the runny side.

Make sure not to cook the eggs at high temperature because they will become rubbery.
