This yummy, easy dish was a recipe of my grandmother, who lived to 103 years! It is great comfort food served over rice, on toast for a Sunday night supper, or for a weekend brunch. It also teams well with Chile con Carne for a buffet meal. Even people who don't normally like canned asparagus, enjoy it. Note: fresh asparagus is not suitable as a substitute.

This recipe sounds very good but I am puzzled by Step 3, (Melt butter) since butter isn't among the ingredients listed.
