Avacado and Asparagus Egg Sandwiches

These sound SOOOOO good.  I can't WAIT to try this recipe.  Asapargus is season right now, so this is a tasty little treat for breakfast, brunch or whatever you like!  Enjoy!


  • 1/2 pound green, white, and/or purple asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 slices white, wheat, or brioche bread
  • 8 slices crisp-cooked bacon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Place asparagus in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Cover with about 2 cups of boiling water. Let stand for 10 to 12 minutes, until bright green and crisp-tender. Drain. Finely chop three of the asparagus spears; set aside.
2. In a small bowl mash avocado with lime juice. Stir in chopped asparagus; set aside.
3. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Break eggs into skillet. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook eggs for 6 minutes, until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken. If desired, turn eggs, to fully cook the yolks.
4. Meanwhile, toast the bread. Spread avocado-asparagus on four slices. Lightly sprinkle with salt. Layer bacon, egg, asparagus, and remaining bread.
Tip if desired, add 2 slices fresh tomato to each sandwich.
