DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • In a pie plate, toss the bread crumbs with the melted butter.
  • Bake for 6 minutes, stirring once, until golden.
  • Meanwhile, fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a rapid boil. Add the asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Drain the asparagus and refresh under cold running water, then pat dry.
  • In a small saucepan, simmer the heavy cream with the sliced garlic; season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the asparagus in 4 individual-size gratin dishes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Crack 2 eggs into each gratin dish, pour the garlic cream on top and sprinkle all over with the buttered crumbs.
  • Bake the eggs for 15 minutes, or until the whites are firm and the yolks are still runny.
  • Serve at once.
