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!
1 1/2 lbs. asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
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.
