Crunchy Topped Cheesy Eggs with Asparagus
Crunchy Crumb Topping:
1 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup crushed croutons

2 tbsp. butter
1 cup thinly sliced fresh asparagus
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 dozen eggs
1 tsp. ground Raley's Garlic Sea Salt
1 cup Raley's Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
3 to 4 tbsp. snipped fresh basil
Raley's Ground Pepper to taste

Prep: 10 minutes, Cook: 10 minutes, Serves: 8

1. To prepare topping, melt butter in a small skillet. Add crushed croutons; cook and stir for a minute over medium heat to lightly brown; set aside.

2. To prepare eggs, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus and cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes or until crisp-tender. Add onions and cook for 1 minute more.

3. Beat eggs with garlic salt and add to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until eggs are about half cooked. Add cheese and basil; cook and stir until eggs are barely set, being careful not to overcook (eggs will continue to cook in hot skillet so undercook slightly to avoid tough eggs). Sprinkle with crumb topping and serve immediately.
