  • Slice tips of asparagus tails. Slice into sections of 2 cm then blanch 2 minutes in boiling water, lightly salted. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Generously butter cocottes and divide asparagus in it.
  • Break an egg in each cocotte. Whisk cream, herbs, salt and pepper. Pour over eggs. Lay asparagus parts over each cocotte.

Chef's notes

Little plus : 4 asparagus, 1 large spread bread and butter.

When bleaching asparagus, set 4 whole asparagus to cook until tenderness. Then, at the end of cooking in the cocotte, brown asparagus in a pan with a piece of butter. Slice bread slice in 4 large slices to roast. Serve a roasted asparagus in butter and toasted bread then butter.
