Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients:
12 Thin asparagus spears
about 4 ounces
4 Eggs
3 Egg yolks
1 Tablespoon(s) Fresh lemon juice
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Pinch(s) Cayenne pepper
1/3 Cup(s) Butter
2 Whole wheat or sourdough
English muffins
Directions:
Fill a medium saucepan or wide deep skillet 3/4 full with hot tap
water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a
gentle boil. Trim off and discard woody ends of asparagus. Place
asparagus in shallow microwave-safe casserole dish, cover with vented
plastic wrap, and cook at HIGH power 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes or until
asparagus are crisp-tender. Cover tightly; set aside in a warm place.
Break whole eggs, one at a time, into a small dish. Slip eggs into
simmering water. Cook about 3 minutes for soft-set eggs or until
cooked as desired. While eggs are cooking, place egg yolks in blender
container. Add lemon juice, salt and cayenne pepper. Place butter in
microwave-safe measuring cup and cook at HIGH power until melted and
bubbly, about 1 to 1-1/2 minutes. With blender running, pour hot
butter in a stream through the hole in the lid. Blend 30 seconds or
until sauce has thickened. Split and toast English muffins. Place 3
asparagus spears over each muffin half. Using a slotted spoon, place
poached eggs over asparagus. Spoon sauce over eggs. Serving
suggestion: Serve with a fresh fruit salad or melon wedges. Makes 2
servings. SOURCE: "In Season," a weekly column written by Karen A.
