Eggs go elegant with the addition of asparagus in this quick-to-the-table, sunny side up preparation. To easily prep asparagus so that it will cook quickly and be tender, bend the spears near the bottom until the woody part snaps off. Or, use only the points of the spears and reserve the middle of the asparagus stalks for another preparation such as a veggie stir-fry or steamed in a green salad. Microwaving the potato before sautéeing it ensures that it's soft inside, with a crisped, browned exterior, a perfect hashed topping to your egg.

Ingredients

uncooked red potato(es)

1 medium, pierced several times with a fork

fresh thyme

1 tsp, chopped

table salt

¼ tsp
