  • Yields: 1

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small cast-iron skillet or oven proof skillet, melt the coconut oil over medium high heat.

Add the onions and saute for about about 5-7 minutes or longer until they are a very rich, golden brown. This is how you get the sweet caramelization taste. Add in the cut up asparagus and cherry tomatoes. Saute together for an additional 3 minutes or until asparagus are slightly fork tender.

Make two "holes" in the vegetables to make room for the eggs.

Crack two eggs into the "holes" and cook on the stovetop for 2 minutes so the whites set slightly.

Place in the preheated oven and cook for approximately 5-7 minutes. Depending on how you like your eggs cooked, so check on them occasionally.

Enjoy!

My husband made this morning and we both thought it was very good, it’s a keeper! He scrambled the eggs and it was very good that way, next time we will try it with the eggs fried to see what we like best! Going to laminate the recipes we really like and put in a folder, this is one we will keep!

I made this for my wife and I for breakfast this morning. I liked the recipe except the coconut oil. To us it made it to sweet for our taste. Next time I make this I am going to us EVOO.
