Cheesy, creamy eggs are the perfect side to the browned butter asparagus spears. Fresh asparagus spears are cooked with butter that has been pre-melted and is golden brown in color. This is then paired with blended scrambled eggs, parmesan, and sour cream, delivered to a creamy perfection.
This paired with the nutty flavor asparagus is a great appetizer to share!
