Sunny Side Eggs with Bacon, Mushroom, Beans, & Asparagus

By April 7, 2015

This is a recipe inspired by the folks at (my favorite food website!). It's another easy, tasty way to get your protein and veggies in the morning!

  • Prep Time : 10 minutes
  • Cook Time : 25 minutes
  • Yield : 2 servings



Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper plate covered with paper towels. Pour off half the grease in the pan into a bowl and reserve for later. Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook until brown, about 10 minutes. Add asparagus and cook until just done, about 5 minutes. Add thyme and cook for about 30 seconds. Add beans and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Pour into a bowl. Crumble bacon and add it to the bean mixture. Add lemon juice and stir until mixed. Add salt and pepper until the balance tastes right to you.

Wipe out the skillet or start with a new one (just make sure the skillet is hot but not smokin' hot). Add about 1 tbs of the bacon grease back to the pan and swirl so it covers the skillet. Add the eggs, being careful not to break the yolks. Add salt and pepper to eggs. Cook until the whites are set.

Add bean mixture to plates (you'll probably have extra - that's OK: it's good as leftovers too!). Top with eggs, then sprinkle the scallions on top. Serve immediately!

    This recipe states is for 2 servings – does that mean you eat a 1/2 pound of bacon for breakfast? That seems like way to much saturated fat and sodium for any diet. Am I reading this correctly?

      Hiya! Sorry – we must be getting different sized packages 😀 The packages I buy are typically 8oz. I’ve updated the recipe to reduce confusion!

        that makes more sense, thank you!
