Roasted Asparagus and Brussel Sprouts with Jamie Oliver's Egg Salad

for the egg salad
8 large hen's eggs
6 tbsp mayonnaise (we used Helman's light mayo because it doesn't add too much sugar too it like other brand tend to, alternatively you could make your own mayo which would be much better)
Lemon zest from one lemon
Juice from 1/2 lemon plus a little more
Salt and pepper

for the asparagus and Brussels sprouts
1/2 pound Brussels sprouts
1 bunch asparagus, stems removed
Coarse salt
3-4 tbsp white wine vinegar
Olive Oil
Freshly ground pepper
2-3 garlic cloves chopped

For the eggs:
  1. Place eggs in a pot of water that is lightly salted. Bring to a boil.
  2. Let boil for 3 minutes, then immediately place under cold water
  3. Peel the eggs and cut in half like you were going to make deviled eggs
  4. Mix the mayo, lemon zest, lemon juice together in a bowl, add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. put the mayo mixture on top of the eggs
For the veggies:
  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Cut ends off of Brussels sprouts and peel off outer leaves. Cut in half
  3. Clean asparagus and cut into 3 sections
  4. Toss veggies in olive oil and garlic and put in a roasting dish
  5. Squeeze some lemon juice on top, sprinkle liberally with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. Put in oven for 15 minutes. About 8 minutes in, flip veggies.
  7. When the 15 minutes is up, put the white wine vinegar on top, we just eyeballed it, but we probably put 3-4 tbsp of the vinegar. Put back in oven for 3-4 more minutes.
The veggies also taste REALLY good dipped in the lemon mayo that was used on top of the eggs


  1. Omgosh I would eat the for any meal of the day!

  2. Definitely try it, its something different than regular egg salad and deviled eggs!
