FRIED EGGS, Roasted potatoes and asparagus

Print This


  • 4 eggs
  • a bunch of asparagus
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 30 grams of butter
  • extra virgin olive oil as required
  • oil for frying as required
  • fresh spinach to taste


To prepare fried eggs with potato rosti and asparagus, thoroughly wash the asparagus, cut the hardest part of the stem and peel. Put waste in a saucepan, cover with water and boil for 30 minutes.

Skipping the asparagus in butter, over medium heat, adding a little broth of asparagus in order to achieve uniform cooking: they will remain crunchy. Salt and pepper lightly. Obviously, you can avoid making the broth and cook the asparagus with a little’ of water, but the flavor the broth is different and you can also use it to make other dishes, like a nice risotto: after all it does not take anything, just boil waste, and is also a way to not waste anything.

Meanwhile, grate the potatoes with a mandolin so as to obtain the long and thin strips. Salt lightly. Forming with potatoes of the dishes nests (help yourself with a skimmer, you can put the potatoes, distribute them evenly and slide them in oil) and fry in plenty of boiling oil. Set aside.

Prepare the egg frying in a little butter or olive oil if you prefer a small diameter pan, so as to obtain a round bell'uovo: just remember to add salt and pepper after cooking, otherwise the yolk stain. I recommend you keep moving the egg white with a fork so that all is in contact with the pan and bake rapidly, so the yolk will remain soft and dark.

Composition of the dish: arranging a potato rosti on each plate, then Arrange the asparagus and complete with fried egg. Serve with spinach salad and bread lightly toasted homemade. Bon appétit!
