discovered this little dish at a tapas restaurant up in santa barbara a few months back and have been making it religiously almost weekly. it's so easy, and so satisfying. do yourself a favor and shell out the cash for a bottle of truffle oil - it makes all the difference...

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 pieces of sourdough bread
8-10 stalks of asparagus
1/4 tsp. truffle oil
1 tablespoon grated manchego cheese
sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Toast your sourdough bread while heading a large skillet with extra virgin olive oil. Add asparagus stalks and saute until cooked through and slightly browned. Heat olive oil in a nonstick frying pan, and add room temperature eggs to fry.
Once bread is toasted, top it with a layer of sauteed asparagus, and add the fried eggs on top of that. Sprinkle with truffle oil, grate manchego cheese over the top, and enjoy.
