Grilled Asparagus With a Perfect Sunny Egg

The most perfect runny egg makes a sauce over tender-crisp grilled asparagus.
Toast is great. I love bread. But sometimes it's nice to lighten things up a bit, and I don't miss the carbs when I put a perfect sunny egg over grilled asparagus. (Made indoors in our nonstick grill pan!) It's fried in a little olive oil so the bottom gets nice and crispy, and it's become my go-to quick 'n' easy breakfast or filling mid-day snack. FYI, this is for a single serving. Just for you! But you can double, triple, or quadruple it if you're making for other people...or you're just really hungry.
tablespoons olive oil
asparagus spears, trimmed
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

No outdoor grill? No problem! This cast iron grill pan delivers summer's smokey BBQ flavors any time of the year—without the fuss of using an actual grill. Nonstick, extra-raised ridges for restaurant-grade grill marks Ridges help drain off fat (so you can save it for later) Plot twist: Can also be used as a waffle iron
Grab the slotted spoon to stir and al dente-test pasta, the spatula for slicing and serving quiche and crumbles, and the spoon for everything else. Carved from olive wood that ages beautifully, these utensils also level up a tablescape—use them for serving salad, spicy slaw, and spaghetti. Olive wood has a natural oil finish, for stain resistance, a little shine and a lot of use. Use the flat, spatula-style utensil to divvy and serve quiche, brownies, berry crumbles and other treats best served warm.
Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. It can cook almost anything and will last a lifetime. Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required
