Asparagus With Ham and Eggs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PetsRus

This is the traditional way to eat asparagus in The Netherlands and probably in Germany and Belgium too. Mostly used are the white asparagus here. I make them using green or white asparagus based on what is available and how the price is. You will need more when using white asparagus because they need to be peeled unlike the green ones. This dish is served here with melted butter drizzled over the asparagus, ham and egg, and some boiled new potatoes. This makes 2 pretty large servings.
