Old Fashioned Asparagus Casserole

I’m on day 40 of asparagus season. Yes, you read that correctly. My patch has been producing every single day for over a month. I absolutely love it but my husband is really over it by now. It’s time to change it up from my go-to recipes, like perfect microwave asparagus.

That’s why, I was super excited when I found an asparagus casserole that can use fresh asparagus in my new cookbook called What’s Cooking Teach?  Thanks Mom for the new cookbook.

Want to know a little secret? I ate the leftovers over a baked potato, and it was amazing!

Asparagus Casserole With Fresh Asparagus

This easy asparagus casserole is as old fashioned as it gets since it has a can of cream of mushroom soup in it. I actually changed the recipe a bit because it called for canned asparagus. Yikes, I just can’t do the mushy texture of canned asparagus. Instead, I boiled my chopped asparagus for a few minutes in salted water, and then followed the recipe.

I made another small change by leaving out hard-boiled eggs. They would be great, but I just didn’t have the time or energy to go through the process of hard boiling them. If you would like to add them, go ahead and add three chopped hard boiled eggs to this chopped asparagus casserole recipe.

Chopped Asparagus Casserole Ingredient List

What do I need to make chopped asparagus casserole?

  • Asparagus Spears: Fresh asparagus is best. Break or cut it into small pieces.  Canned asparagus works too; be sure to drain well.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: It’s not a vintage casserole without a cream soup. Cream of celery or cream of chicken soup will work too.
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese: Feel free to use whatever shredded cheese you prefer. Grating your own makes a a stringier, meltier casserole, but I often use the pre-shredded cheese to save time.
  • Crushed Crackers: I prefer a butter cracker, like Ritz crackers, but any type will work.
  • Butter: Melt the butter (or margarine) to pour right over top!
  • Salt and Black Pepper: optional
