Notes

  • I love this over buttered toast points, but it's also delicious over hot biscuits.
  • Just par-boil the asparagus when boiling so that it still has a bite to it. It will continue to cook in the cream sauce.  You don't want mushy asparagus in the end.
  • Hard-boiled eggs can be omitted, if desired.
  • Season generously with salt and pepper.  If not, your asparagus in cream sauce will be bland.
  • What to serve with creamed asparagus? Serve it as a main dish over toast or try eating it along side a ham steak for a perfect dinner.
