Default egg and asparagus gratin for one

3 asparagus spears, cut in 1" pieces & boiled for 3 minutes
2 eggs
1 T. heavy cream
1T. parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of lemon peel
pinch of cayenne pepper

In a well buttered 4- 5" baking dish place asparagus. Break eggs over asparagus. Spoon cream over asparagus and eggs. Sprinkle with seasonings. Bake at 450 for 5 - 7 minutes or until desired doneness of eggs. Remove from oven and add parmesan cheese. Continue to bake 1 more minute.
Carb - 2.5 grams

I found this recipe from the internet. I made a few changes : I used 2 sections of a muffin tin instead of a baking pan. I divided all the ingredients equally, I added a layer of ham 1st, and used munster cheese instead of the parmesan. I thought it was wonderful!

This looks great! I'm looking for fast breakfast ideas. I'm assuming that you can mix and match veggies/cheeses as well and that you can nuke this in the microwave too (just gotta figure out the time )

Thanks again!

This recipe sounds good. I think I will try it out. Thanks for posting it. Instead of asparagus, you may want to try mushrooms and crabmeat or salmon and try a little seafood seasoning sprinkled on top of it.

Thanks again for the recipe, I see several modifications for it.
