I’m really into baked eggs. They are so versatile! You can add most anything to a baked egg recipe, and come up with something new and tasty.
Asparagus, sun dried tomato and parmesan cheese dress this egg dish up. And don’t forget to add the quark! This creamy cheese really gives these baked eggs a silky texture.
Happy, healthy cooking!

What’s good for me in this dish?
Asparagus tops the charts in vitamin K and folate. It’s also a good source of vitamins C and A. Folate is essential for a healthy cardiovascular system. Asparagus also contains potassium, making it a natural diuretic.
Eggs provide tryptophan, selenium, iodine, vitamins B2 and B12, and protein. Eating eggs promotes eye health. They can also contribute to the prevention of strokes and heart attacks. Free range, or cage free eggs are considered to be higher in quality nutrients such as all nine essential amino acids, and are less likely to contribute to high cholesterol levels.
