From the Junior League of North Harris County TX - this is terrific!


  1. Rinse and clean asparagus, discarding tough ends and removing scales. Boil in salted water for 10 minutes, until tender-crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan until melted. Add flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes until thick.
  3. Place 1/2 of the asparagus in the bottom of a greased 1 1/2 quart shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the chopped eggs. and dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper over all.
  4. Top with remaining asparagus. Sprinkle the remaining chopped eggs along the center portion of the asparagus.
  5. Pour the cream sauce down the middle of the baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and cheese. Dot uncovered portions of asparagus with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
  6. Bake, covered, and 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove cover and bake 3-5 minutes longer or until topping is browned. Served immediately.

This was so good. It had a wonderful flavor. I did have to use about 2 Tbs of flour to make my sauce thicker and I didn't use the eggs because I was out. The pepper gave this asparagus a wonderful added kick. Thank you so much for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.

Very tasty! Eggs gave a unique, unexpected taste. I would use more cheese next time, though, as I'm a HUGE cheese lover! Made this for PRMR 9/09.

This is a terrific, wow what a wow-sier of a recipe. I actually now have made this twice. I grabbed a quick photo today to try to capture the essence of this dish. To be honest, I craved it, it is that *terrific* I didn't change anything except I use 1% mllk and halved it the recipe. I shouldn't of halved it though, because I needed more. Being a *pepper head* I loved the use of cayenne pepper, and if you are worried and concerned this might be to hot, it absolutely not. The swiss cheese combined with the breadcrumbs make such a yummy topping, I had an extra egg, so I threw that on top too, right after it came out of the oven. Thank you so much, loof.
