Ingredients

  • 8 oz asparagus
  • 1 avocado halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 slices hearty bread
  • 8 slices bacon crisp cooked

Instructions

  1. Place asparagus spears in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Pour enough boiling water over asparagus to cover. Let stand for 10 to 12 minutes or until bright colored and crisp-tender. Drain. Finely chop three of the asparagus spears; set aside.

  2. In a small bowl use a fork to mash avocado; stir in lime juice. Stir in chopped asparagus; set aside.

  3. For omelet, in a small bowl whisk together eggs, the water, salt, and pepper until combined but not frothy. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with flared sides over medium-high heat until skillet is hot. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in skillet. Add half of the egg mixture; reduce heat to medium. Immediately begin stirring eggs gently but continuously with a wooden or plastic spatula until mixture resembles small pieces of cooked egg surrounded by liquid egg. Stop stirring. Cook for 30 to 60 seconds or until egg is set. Remove from heat. Using a spatula, lift and fold an edge of omelet to opposite edge. Transfer to a warm plate. Cover with foil and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the remaining egg mixture.

  4. Toast bread and then spread each slide with the avocado and asparagus mixture. 

  5. Top two slices of bread with bacon, remaining asparagus spears and egg. Then top with remaining two slices of bread. Eat immediately. Trust us.

Recipe Notes

Why Is It Healthy?

  • Asparagus is a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E, and K. It also contains lots of soluble and insoluble fiber, making it a good choice if you're trying to lose weight. Because your body digests fiber slowly, it keeps you feeling full between meals.
  • Avocados contain more potassium than bananas, which supports healthy blood pressure levels. They're also high in mono-unsaturated fatty acids linked to reducing inflammation.
  • Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper.
