Ingredients
  

  • 1 - 1 1/2 pound asparagus
  • 5-7 slices of bacon
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil for spritzing
  • quail eggs approx 1 dozen
  • 1 -2 tablespoon butter

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Rinse and trim asparagus.
  • Create bundles of asparagus - 3-4 pieces each bundle. Plan on 4 pieces for average size asparagus, 3 pieces for thicker stalks.
  • Salt and pepper each bundle and wrap bacon around bundle, wrapping upwards at an angle.
  • Spritz any unwrapped areas (tips & ends) with olive oil.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake for 30 -35 minutes. Asparagus should be tender and bacon should be browned and crisp.
  • Fry quail eggs in a generous amount of butter over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. I find it easiest to crack quail eggs with a butter knife into a small bowl, in pairs, and pour from bowl into frying pan.
  • Slide pairs of cooked eggs on top of asparagus bundles. Salt & pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
  • Note: Chicken or duck eggs may be substituted if quail eggs are not available.
