- Stir in the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Cook garlic in butter for a minute, but do not brown.

Breakfast! 10-12 asparagus spears, the woody root snapped off; 2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 clove garlic smashed with a knife, ½ tsp ground salt and pepper to taste; 3 eggs; tabasco. Melt the butter over med hi heat, add the garlic, salt and pepper, cook one minute but do not brown, remove the garlic. Cook the asparagus 6-8 minutes, turning to cook evenly. Remove to plate and keep warm. Add eggs to the butter, cover, and cook 1-2’ sunny side up. Top the asparagus with the eggs, serve with tabasco.
I'm not sure that you really need a recipe for this (sauteed asparagus)? but i would suggest that the cooking times are way way too long! you want the asparagus still 'al dente' just like pasta and i would also suggest that you have the heat high enough so that you sear/brown the stalks on the outside before being overcooked. (if using garlic, the trick is to cook the asparagus without burning the garlic (which burns really easily). maybe sauteeing them separately is the best thing to do. alternatively, just add the chopped garlic or garlic mince late in the process.) if the asparagus stalks are thick, usually it is recommended that you peel the stalks (slightly) with a vegetable peeler or knife and, although garlic is classical, you could possibly try sliced/diced chilli instead (if you like chilli). And butter instead of a vegetable oil would give a better flavour, but be more careful with the heat level.

I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with Food.com since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
