  2. this is very good didnt change anything but put sliced boiled eggs on each slice mmmmmmmmm this is good and easy to make thanks for sharing
  3. This is as good as asparagus gets. We had it every spring when I was a child. My kids love it too. I usually saute the asparagus in BUTTER and then make the roux in the same pan with the asparagus. Add milk after the flour and butter cooks for a few minutes to avoid a raw flour taste.Just a dash of garlic powder and onion powder will give it a nice finish. Thanks for a trip down memory lane ! Give this a try, you'll love it as much as we do!
  4. My dad always made creamed asparagus over toast when I was growing up! It is one of my favorite breakfasts, especially over grain bread! I make it slightly different making a roux out of 4Tbsp butter and 4Tbsp flour, then add 2 cups milk and some garlic powder, salt and pepper. Basically the same though...everyone should try this!
  5. You can't go wrong with this recipe. I've been making it for fifty years. I used all of the reserved, asparagus-infused water with the cream. I also cracked a couple of eggs into the cream. Then poured it over English muffins.


  1. tbsp of worcestershire sauce and cajun seasoning to taste kicks it up a notch!
