These little beauties are a leftover meal, believe it or not. I had leftover asparagus and steak from the night before and I wanted to come up with something a little more innovative that steak n' eggs. Now, this is not something you eat every morning, y'all hear me? This is a weekend treat, most likely a Sunday morning brunch food that you make because you had steak on Saturday night.
In fact, if I were you, I would make extra steak on purpose the night before and then divvy it up in the morning for this dish!
To make the nests, lay two pieces of cooked asparagus side by side then lay another two pieces at the end, so that you have a length of asparagus that is two pieces long and two pieces wide.
Then take a piece of bacon and wrap it around them, making a circle. The bacon will stretch out – and it should be stretched out- and will cover the asparagus nicely. Tuck the ends under to keep them from coming loose.
It takes a little practice but by the second one I knew what I was doing.
Then place two more asparagus in the middle.
Place in the oven at 350 degrees and baked until the bacon is cooked.
Remove and plate.
Top with leftover steak – cold or warm- and a poached or fried egg, making sure there's lots of yolk!
These are definitely a perfect Sunday brunch food. You can top with a Hollandaise if you want, my blender Hollandise is the best AND the easiest ever.
Happy cooking everyone!
