Goat Cheese, Asparagus and Prosciutto Egg Sandwiches

The following post contains sponsored content. Thanks to  brands like Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs, I am able to take the time to create new recipes for you all.

Last week I wrote about how I am struggling as a parent, and I admitted how I have often been feeding my family  frozen veggie burgers, take out and even Top Ramen. Without a second set of hands around here, I am drowning!

These nights are filled with fast family pleasers that are easily adaptable to each of my kids tastes. Sandwiches are the perfect answer. I lay out a few options, cheese, several proteins and some vegetables and let the kids create their own masterpieces. This way I do not actually have to cook anything for them, and they have a blast making their own supper!

And what is mom going to create? I keep it simple. A thin layer of goat cheese, prosciutto, asparagus, and a sunny side up egg piled  on top of a slice of sourdough.

Sunny side up eggs make an appearance in my diet several times a week, breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are versatile and great on top of so many things. Salads, pizza, sandwiches, hash, pasta, pretty much anything goes in this house!

Eating undercooked egg yolks can be a bit risky. There is a chance of contracting foodborne illnesses such as salmonella or listeria. But thanks to the folks at Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs we no longer have to fret. They only sell pasteurized eggs. We can now safely handle raw eggs and enjoy our undercooked yolks.

Goat Cheese, Asparagus and Prosciutto Egg Sandwiches 

  • Slice of your favorite artisan bread ( I used a locally made sourdough) 
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 1 tbs goat cheese spread
  • 4 asparagus spears
  • 1 Davidson's Safest Choice Egg
  • non stick cooking spray
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Heat a small non stick fry pan over medium/high heat, evenly coat with cooking spray. Sauté asparagus for about 5 minutes or just until they start to soften. Sprinkle with salt and pepper as desired. Set aside.
  2. Using the same pan,  lightly spray  again with non stick cooking spray. 
  3. Crack your egg in the center and slowly fry over medium heat. Allow the egg to cook until the white has coagulated, and cooked through. Make sure the yolk is still glossy to ensure it will be runny. Total cooking time should only be a couple of minutes.   
  4. Remove from heat. 
  5. Toast your bread, spread goat cheese over the top. Layer with prosciutto and cooked asparagus. Top with your sunny side up egg. 
  6. And dig in!!

  1. Sorry to hear you are so slammed right now. I know that feeling. For us, it seems to come in waves, and it can seem hard to stay afloat. Easy dinners makes a huge difference. And if they look like this, that's not so bad! This looks like it is straight off the pages of Saveur Carrie! :)

  2. I've been TOTALLY obsessed with goat cheese right now...and I have always been obsessed with eggs....the runny yolk just gets me everytime! I hope things get a little less crazy for you...but these looks AMAZING! pinned!

  3. I love a sunny side up egg. It makes everything so... sunny! I have been feeling a bit like I am drowning lately and I only have one kid so I cannot imagine how overwhelmed you feel. But you are doing it gurl! Doing it all! My blog has taken a bit of a backseat since my baby came into my life so kudos to you for keeping up with all of it!

  4. Oh goodness, I don't even have kids to feed yet and I'm all about the frozen veggie burgers for dinner sometimes (like this week... with frozen fries. #foodbloggeroftheyear). So good on you for getting creative with these delicious looking sammies! Adding them to the dinner menu next week. :)
