Creamed Asparagus on Toast

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars

"My mom made this when I was a kid. My wife makes it for me often. It's easy and delicious. I am not a big fan of asparagus prepared any other way. I like to pour over one slice of toast, add another on top, and then pour more over it."

  1. Place asparagus into a large pot or skillet and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Mix 3 tablespoons butter and flour together in the same pot over medium-low heat until flour is dissolved and mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Add milk, asparagus, and salt to butter-flour mixture and simmer until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Spread about 1 teaspoon butter onto each piece of toast. Pour creamed asparagus over each piece of toast.

I'm still not sure if it was totally great idea but what I decided to do with this recipe was to roast the asparagus, (which is on sale now) covered with bacon slices and I roasted it all at 400...

Made this for hubby and I with freshly picked asparagus. Yummy!! Tasted just like his Gram's. One added step I'll take for next batch is to cut the asparagus before boiling. If that was in the s...

Tasted great. Added a handful of grated cheddar. Made the cleanup a bit more difficult but worth it. Chopped asparagus into segments before adding to sauce.
