This is not your old, boring, and incredibly unhealthy, drive-through egg sandwich.  Layers of flavor combine to create this amazingly easy dish (that looks like you went to a restaurant).  Great for upcoming outdoor Spring parties or asparagus abundance. Creamy avocado, crispy turkey bacon, herb garlic mayo and roasted asparagus surround a beautiful fried egg, all piled on top of toasty bread.

Show off your culinary skills and make this delicious sandwich the star of your weekend dinner, brunch or lunch.  Serve with a side of homemade potato wedges, sweet corn on the cob, or a big green salad.

serves 8

  • 8 slices WHEAT, MULTIGRAIN BREAD OR ENGLISH MUFFIN, toasted
  • 8 LARGE EGGS
  • 1 fruit LARGE AVOCADO, deseeded, sliced
  • 2 tbsp FRESH LEMON JUICE
  • 12 oz ASPARAGUS, stalk ends trimmed
  • 1/2 tbsp OLIVE OIL, EXTRA VIRGIN
  • SEA SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE
  • 2 medium GREEN ONIONS, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup SPINACH, BABY
  • 1/2 cup MAYONNAISE, LIGHT
  • 1/4 tsp GARLIC POWDER
  • 1/2 tsp PARSLEY, DRIED
  • 1 tsp FRESH LEMON JUICE
  • 24 slices TURKEY BACON, cooked
  • 8 tsp PARMESAN CHEESE, SHREDDED, freshly shredded

1. For the herb mayo: whisk together mayo, garlic powder, parsley, 1/2 t. lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Store covered in refrigerator until ready to use.

2. Place the asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and toss with hands to coat. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until starts to lightly brown.

3. While the asparagus is baking fry the eggs (to your liking – mine were over medium) in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray.

4. Slice the avocado and drizzle with fresh lemon juice to keep from browning.

5. To assemble the sandwiches: spread mayo on toasted bread, layer a few spinach leaves, 3 slices crispy bacon, 2 avocado slices, 1 egg, 3 asparagus spears, 1 tsp parmesan cheese, salt and pepper if desired, and sprinkling of green or red onion (optional).

6. Serve on a large platter with extra herb mayo on the side. Serving size: 1 open face  sandwich.
