Dreamy British Asparagus Breakfast Toasts

Dreamy British Asparagus Breakfast Toasts

Posted by Patrick Rock Smith | 27 April 2021 | Food & Drink

It is the start of the British Asparagus season! To celebrate, I created these dreamy British asparagus breakfast toasts; made by steaming, frying, roasting, shaving and chopping the spears. It’s such a versatile vegetable that you can really get creative with it, and have it served so many different ways throughout the season.  But you should be quick, British asparagus is only here for 8 weeks, so you’ll need to get it whilst you can! @EnjoyAsparagus

All served a-top pan-toasted sourdough bread.  From top left:
