Asparagus with egg sauce

The egg sauce – or Bozner Sauce, a sauce from Bozen – is a simple but tasty classic of the South Tyrolean cuisine.

It is composed of few ingredients and the preparation is rather easy too. In South Tyrol, the egg sauce is commonly served with white asparagus in spring, and mainly in the asparagus restaurants in Terlan.
