Avocado and Asparagus Egg Sandwiches

Nothing screams Spring quite like bright green veggies! Recently, I’ve been really digging asparagus probably because it’s so easy to cook and my entire family loves it. Yes, even my 4 year old loves it! She calls is ‘sparagus’. She also calls avocados ‘ha-do-ca-dos’. We have fun little cooking and grammar lessons all at the same time.

I’m all about education and multi-tasking.

Except not really.

Anyways, after searching BHG.com, I found this amazing recipe for Avocado and Asparagus Egg Sandwiches. Pretty healthy, totally delicious and really easy to throw together! Plus I had all the ingredients on hand. That is a recipe meant to be.

Here’s how you make them:

Start by snapping the bottoms of your asparagus off. The ends are woody and aren’t that fun to eat. I also sliced mine down the center because the asparagus at the grocery store were particularly large and in charge.

Once you have your asparagus in a shallow dish, cover them with boiling water and set aside. After about 10 minutes they should be crisp-tender and bright green. Drain.

While the asparagus is doing it’s thing, cook up some bacon,

fry a few eggs,

and mash a ripe avocado with a little lemon juice.

To the avocado, chop up a few pieces of the barely cooked asparagus and stir. Once this is all done, you can assemble your sandwiches!

 First, spread a healthy layer of the avocado mixture onto some toasty bread, then top with more asparagus, cooked bacon and a fried egg. Serve warm and enjoy!

We loved this recipe and the combination of bacon and avocado with the asparagus was amazing!!
