Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 slices good-quality bacon chopped
  • 4 asparagus spears cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium leeks thinly sliced
  • Fresh chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Crack the eggs into a large bowl and scramble until uniform in color. Stir in the salt. Set aside.
  • In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat, cook the chopped bacon for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. I prefer it to be cooked through but not crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon once you’ve reached the desired texture, and leave the grease in the pan. Set the bacon aside.
  • Add the asparagus and leeks to the pan. Cover and cook the vegetables in the bacon grease over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, until tender.
  • Return the cooked bacon to the pan and pour the egg mixture on top. Sprinkle with chopped chives.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until set.
