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

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.
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.
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!
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.
I could eat this any time of day, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Made it twice in the past week; so good, especially with all the fresh spring asparagus around. It's just so simple and elegant. I've had asparagus with proscuitto and asparagus with lemon, and asparagus with egg (not poached), but never all together. Very creative and easy recipe that turns my favorite vegetable into a substantial and delicious meal. Thanks again Chef John, another great recipe. I'm becoming a huge fan!
This was really very good! Invited my daughter and grandkids over for breakfast, everyone loved it. Thanks!
This was incredible! Hubs made it as one of the 2 meals he cooks every week. I was amazed at how filling a few shoots of asparagus and an egg was. And the lemon zest pushed it right over the top. He made it exactly as written and we will eat this often. Chef John rules! Again!
Amazing combination of flavors. Wonderful for our low carb diet!
