Delicious sunny side up eggs with fried asparagus, parma ham, tomatoes, sprinkled with Parmegiano

eggIt’s the little moments that make life big.

On the weekends, I love starting the day with a nice breakfast. I particularly cherish this time alone in the kitchen in the early morning.  It’s a little moment of happiness where everything is quiet and you feel good about creating something tasty for your loved one. I feel the sun shining through the window on my back, take a deep breath, and feel ready to face another day with nothing but positivity.

  6. Stir regularly
  7. Season with salt and pepper

  9. Once nice and crispy, mix the asparagus and parma ham egg2and slide all to one side of the pan making room for the eggs.
  10. Crack the eggs into the pan
  11. Place the cherry tomatoes in the pan, as to heat them up
  12. Season the eggs with some salt and pepper
  13. Sprinkle the Parmigiano over the eggs and the asparagus/parma ham mix.

Tips:

  • Green asparagus does not need to be peeled when they are thin. Don’t you love it when you save time!
  • Make sure to yolk is runny but hot!

Potential Pregnancy Benefits

Asparagus is a rich source of vitamin B9, B complex, K, C and A. Not to mention, asparagus contains a ton of folic acid! The vegetable is rich in fiber which can help when one is suffering from constipation. I recently even read that asparagus is also known to promote fertility so perhaps I should include it in my diet even more regularly!

Eggs are a good source of protein, vitamin D, A, B2 and iodine.
