Brush the inside of the egg coddler with olive oil until the bottom and all sides are thinly coated. Pour out any excess oil. Separate the eggs whites and yolks into separate bowls. Discard the egg whites or set aside for another use. Add the dill weed, salt and pepper to the bowl of egg yolks. Gently stir together until blended.
Pour the egg yolk mixture into the egg coddler. Tightly seal the lid.
Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Lower the egg coddler into the boiling water. Allow the egg yolks to boil for ten minutes. Turn off the heat. Allow the egg coddler to sit in the hot water for two more minutes. Remove the covered egg coddler from the water and allow to cool down until the egg coddler is cool to the touch to handle.
Once cool, open the lid. Remove the hardened egg yolk from the coddler. Finely grate or chop the egg yolk. Set aside grated cooked egg yolk. Note: You can also store grated egg yolk in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Excellent to use as garnishment for salads.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Under cold running water cut off the ends of the asparagus stalks. With a small knife or carrot scrapper lightly clean the stalks. Squeeze lemon juice over all of the asparagus. Brush asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
Place the asparagus on cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil into the oven on the middle rack. Roast approximately 10 minutes until al dente or longer if softer spears are desired. The roasting time will vary depending on the thickness of the spears.
Remove cookie sheet with asparagus from the oven and serve. Garnish with Grated Dill Coddled Egg Yolks. Note: May also be refrigerated and served cold.
* Any herbs and spices of your choice may be substituted for the dill.
** If you do not have an egg coddler, you can use a small mason jar with lid or a ramekin covered with foil.
