Who doesn't love a great brunch recipe?

I know I do! This recipe takes about 55 minutes to prepare, and the end result is soooo worth it! My husband and I gobbled this creamy sage infused polenta up so quickly, we wish we had enough for seconds :)

I hope you all enjoy!

Roasted Asparagus, Baked ‘Ham,’ Poached Eggs & Sage Infused Polenta:

Yield: 2 Servings

Cook Time: 55 Min


- ½ Bunch Asparagus, Trimmed

- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

- 1 tsp Sea Salt + Black Pepper

- 4 Whole Eggs or Vegan Alternative Ex: (Just Egg)

- 6 Pieces of Baked Ham or Vegan Alternative Ex: (Tofurkey Deli Slices)

- 2 tsp Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

- Sage Infused Polenta:

o 1 Cup Polenta

o 3 Cups Water

o 2 Cups Vegetable Stock

o 1 tsp Sea Salt

o 4-5 Fresh Sage Leaves


1. Gather all ingredients. Wash & dry all produce. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bring a large pot of water to a simmer with ¼ cup vinegar added. Bring an additional 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot.

2. Next, trim asparagus and toss with 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt, and 1 tsp black pepper. Layer asparagus on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper or Silpat.

3. Roast for 16-18 minutes until the asparagus is starting to char lightly.

4. While asparagus is roasting, prepare polenta by adding 2 cups vegetable stock to the 3 cups of boiling water. Add 1 tsp sea salt and 3-4 fresh sage leaves to the water over medium high heat and bring to a simmer.

5. Add the polenta and cook according to package instructions. Stir occasionally. Remove the sage leaves when polenta is finished cooking.

6. Next, prepare the poached eggs by cracking eggs into a bowl and slowly pour the eggs into the simmering vinegar water. (Make sure to swirl the water with a spoon before adding the eggs so they don’t break!)

7. Once the eggs are slightly firm, remove from the water with a slotted spoon. Sprinkle fresh cracked pepper over the top just before serving.

8. Lastly, heat the ham or plant-based ham slices in a small sauté pan until heated throughout. Plate everything together and enjoy! :)


- You can keep everything warm by using the microwave as a “hot box” while you’re preparing other items!
