"Yes, cooking prosciutto does make dishes salty, but the taste of this dish is actually quite mild and pleasant to my palette." — Chef John

What an excellent breakfast this made! I toasted a slice of baguette in the pan that I cooked the Prosciutto in which was a great addition. My asparagus wasn't very thick so it only took about 10 total to roast. Thanks for another great recipe, Chef John.
What an underrated recipe! This was the best asparagus recipe I have ever had the pleasure of making and eating. The egg part was a bit tricky to make but on the second try it came out perfect, just be patient with that part if its your first time cooking your egg in such a way. Watch the video its very helpful.
Just finished this dish and loved it. Minor changes - used bacon since that's all I had on hand and didn't use any oil, just a little bacon fat w/the bacon pieces and salt and pepper on the asparagus. As someone else mentioned - great low carb dish and healthy (if you don't use too much bacon;). Next time I might try some grated Parmesan on top.
This was really very good! Invited my daughter and grandkids over for breakfast, everyone loved it. Thanks!
Amazing combination of flavors. Wonderful for our low carb diet!
I had this for dinner tonight with a baguette. It's great for one person but also easy enough to make for a group. Don't skip the lemon zest at the end!
I used just normal supermarket ham and it was still great!..Thanks for a great recipe. Since I made it for lunch, I ate it with Sirloin steak :)
