    twissis's Note:

    There's nothing better than fresh asparagus & this is a very tasty way to serve it & impress for a company meal w/a chicken breast & green salad. Sadly fresh asparagus is rarely available here in Iceland & very expensive when I find it, so I don't fix this often like I did in the US. It can be prepared ahead, but don't refrigerate (read note below).

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash asparagus well & trim stem-ends so spears are 8" long. Parboil spears till just barely fork-tender, but still fairly crisp. Quickly drain & cover w/cold water to stop cooking process. Drain again when cool & set aside.
    2. 2
      Cut bacon slices crosswise, fry till crisp & drain well on paper towel.
    3. 3
      Slice ea egg crosswise into 6 slices.
    4. 4
      To assemble, pat asparagus spears dry w/paper towel & place equally in 6 groups in a 9"x13" baking dish. Top ea group w/1 sliced egg + equal amts of the crisped bacon pieces along their length & set aside.
    5. 5
      Microwave cream cheese in sml dish to soften & warm slightly. Set aside.
    6. 6
      Combine butter & flour over med-low heat to make a roux & gradually add milk. Use the flat a spatula to eliminate any lumps as you go.
    7. 7
      Do not overcook sauce. When milk has been added & the sauce is smooth & thickening, remove from heat & incorporate the softened cream cheese & lemon pepper seasoning salt.
    8. 8
      Spoon cream sauce over ea asparagus group, "dust" w/1 tbsp crushed croutons + sprinkle w/fresh chives or parsley.
    9. 9
      Bake in hot oven (400F) just till bubbling & serve immediately. (Can also microwave till heated through, but do not refrigerate as this will lengthen the cooking time & potentially cause the sauce to separate).
    10. 10
      NOTES: Sliced fresh mushrooms also work well as an addition -- For a 1-dish meal w/only a salad on the side, use this combo to stuff a well-pounded chicken breast & add mushrooms on top as a finishing touch.

      Party worthy and beyond! Since we have an overabundance of asparagus (Sorry for me!) I tagged this wonderful asparagus treat. Beyond comfort food for us! Our whole family proclaimed this to be made at least once a week here on the farm. Didn't have croutons, so I crushed up some Ritz crackers to add to top. I also added some crushed garlic and minced onion to the cream cheese prior to softening it up. (I was using the garlic and onion for another recipe, so just thought I would throw that in too) I can't tell you how much we loved this recipe. All measurements worked well for us, so other then my few additions, didn't change a thing! Thanks, twissis. Didn't take a picture, as kiwidutch added a beautiful ones!

      This was a very nice side dish to my shrimp burbon. I will admit that I left out the eggs for my own personal preference. Thanks twissis.

      Yum... this a great recipe and easy to throw together. I omitted the croutons but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I used 1 bunch of aspargus (not sure what they weigh) and see from my sauce that 2 bunches would have been better,(lack of croutons probably made a difference here too) The taste was lovely and I will definiately be making this again. pease see my rating system: a lovely 4 stars. Thanks!!!
