    Pets'R'us's Note:

    This is the traditional way to eat asparagus in The Netherlands and probably in Germany and Belgium too. Mostly used are the white asparagus here. I make them using green or white asparagus based on what is available and how the price is. You will need more when using white asparagus because they need to be peeled unlike the green ones. This dish is served here with melted butter drizzled over the asparagus, ham and egg, and some boiled new potatoes. This makes 2 pretty large servings.

      Pets, an excellent recipe, easy and quick for a weekday menu, or on the buffet table, looks fantastic and tastes great. I added extra ham (the family love it)and this was very well received by all. I make this relatively often now and when the family know what's cookin' they say "Ooohhh, good, Yummmmy"... always a good sign :) Many Thanks! I'm updating this rating because I make it often for guests using both white and green asparagus and it always goes down a treat. This photo is for 6 guests and there wasn't a scrap left, That's surely a reason to upgrade a recipe from 4 to five stars, Thanks!

      This made a lovely, light, tasty supper for us. My fingers 'itched' to add some lemon juice or parmesan cheese, but I resisted and I'm glad I did. It didn't need any 'extras'. I did, however, add some sliced, home-grown tomatoes on the side, which, we thought, complimented the dish perfectly. Easy to prepare, pretty to look at, and delicious to eat. What more could you want?
