Ingredients

Directions

Place the asparagus in the basket of a vegetable steamer and steam until tender, about 10 minutes. Immediately plunge into a bowl of ice water and drain. Pat dry. Cut each spear in half on a diagonal and cut the bottom of the spears into small dice.

Melt half of the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add all the asparagus and cook, gently stirring, to heat thoroughly.

Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a large skillet. Add the eggs and whisk in a figure eight, making sure the edges of the eggs don?t stick. When the eggs are almost set, slowly pour in the cream, a little at a time, continuing to whisk briskly.

Sprinkle in the chives and whisk until the eggs are completely set. Divide the eggs and asparagus evenly among four plates, placing the spears and diced asparagus around the eggs or stack the spears so they lean against the eggs. Season with salt and pepper.
