It’s the season and I’m not wasting a bit of asparagus. These asparagus ends did not end up in my Creamy Asparagus Soup but right on the top of my poached eggs with my homemade Spicy Hollandaise Sauce and so easy. We kept the last two cooked asparagus, sliced them, and added them to the leftover hollandaise sauce. In the morning we heated the sauce and drizzled it over the top of our eggs. What a treat!
I love this little gizmo. It makes the best-pouched eggs. If your a pro with the boiling water procedure then have at it. You can even scramble the eggs and pour this delicious sauce right on top!
