Creamed Asparagus on Toast

If you don't like asparagus or hard-cooked eggs, you won't like this recipe, but I love it!  My Mom has been making it since I was little and it's a favorite for me.  However, I can't say the same for my husband & children, who call hard-cooked eggs hot & rotten eggs.  It's definitely an easy recipe though, and I think you'll like it!

6 eggs
1 1/2 lbs. asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
6T butter
6T flour
salt & pepper
3 cups milk
Toast slices, buttered

Boil eggs for 10-12 minutes, set aside in cold water.  Steam asparagus until done, but still somewhat crisp.  While asparagus is steaming, dice or slice eggs and place in a large bowl.  

To make a basic white sauce, melt butter in a saute pan.  Add flour and stir until combined.  Season with salt & pepper to taste.  Add milk and stir until thickened.  Add sauce & steamed asparagus to eggs and stir together.

Serve over buttered toast, torn into bite size pieces.
