shredded Cheddar cheese
crushed saltine crackers
condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (15 ounce) can
asparagus, drained with liquid reserved
My husband and I loved this recipe. I did make a few changes because I did not have the correct ingredients on hand. I used Ritz crackers and cheddar cheese soup. In addition I used fresh steamed asparagus and then added milk to the soup mixture. The results were great, thanks!
I would recommend not putting the juice from the canned asparagus into the liquid mixture, the flavor of that stuff is horrible. I like asparagus, but this didn't taste good at all.
This was the first recipe I've ever taken from this website (new user) and it was a huge success!! I made it for a holiday party but it didn't get eaten because there weren't many asparagus-eaters, so I brought it to another gathering the next day and we ran out, and had people asking for more, and for the recipe! It was great....and that was as leftovers. I modified the recipe to include fresh asparagus instead of canned, Cheese-its instead of saltines (as one other reviewer suggested), and cream of asparagus instead of mushroom. I think it provides a lot of flexibility for improvising, based on what's in the cabinets. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious! I used fresh asparagus (didn't steam first, just threw it in), cut the butter down a little, and cut down the amount of crumbs a little. I can see where canned asparagus wouldn't be good - I'll only make this recipe with fresh. Oh, and I used more asparagus than what was called for.
Everyone at home LOVED this recipe! I used frozen asparagus, which made the casserole more about the veggie and the soup and crust more of an accessory. I forgot the almonds because I was putting it together fast. That, by the way, is possibly my favorite part of this dish. It's so fast! It takes about two minutes to put the layers altogether, and it only takes 20-30 minutes to cook! Delicious! I'm going to be making this again and again!
My dad is a big fan of this casserole. It's a snap to make, too. I use butter flavored crackers (e.g. Ritz) in place of the saltines, and a second can of asparagus. (Just the spears, not the juice.) I find this gives the casserole a better ratio of veggies to starch.
we loved it!
This was excellent! I used fresh asparagus and steamed it first using chicken broth. Then I realized the only crackers I had on hand were Triscuts, which turned out to be a good substitute. Eliminated the almonds and followed the recipe otherwise and it was fantastic, thanks!
