A delicious way to serve asparagus to your guests. It can be prepared ahead, refrigerated, and baked while your guests enjoy an appetizer!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 bunches fresh asparagus or 2 (15 ounce) cans asparagus, drained
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled & thinly sliced
  • 13 cup butter flavored cracker, crushed (I use Ritz)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 12 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 14 cup milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 14 teaspoon italian seasoning (optional)

Directions

  1. Drop fresh asparagus into boiling water.
  2. As soon as they turn"bright" green, remove and plunge them into ice water to stop the cooking process.
  3. Drain.
  4. Mix soup and milk together.
  5. Place asparagus in 9x13x2-inch casserole.
  6. Top with sliced eggs.
  7. Sprinkle with crackers; sprinkle with cheese.
  8. Pour soup mixture over casserole.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees until hot, just bubbling and cheese is melted.
  10. NOTE: For a spicier version my family really, really likes, I use Cheez-its (Hot and Spicy) crackers instead of the butter-flavored crackers mentioned above. I usually add a few more crackers than the original recipe calls for.

Very nummmy casserole BeachGirl!! I had to cut the recipe in half and there was still an abundance for two with left overs for tomorrow. With the cheese,eggs & mushroom soup it was quite rich. I sprinkled a little more cheese over the mushroom soup, will make this the next time we have company, thanks for sharing.

Very tasty and rich in flavor. I used frozen asparagus because fresh was not available. Worked well but was a little soft for my taste. Think it will also be great with broccoli. I will try that next.

I made this for Thanksgiving Day. What a hit with everyone. I made a few changes. I sauteed the asparagus in butter with garlic. Then I used the drippings to mix with the soup instead of milk. I also used cheese its in the place of the butter flavored crackers. I've already had request to make this again. Thanks!
