Creamed Asparagus on Toast

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.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed

  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  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.
