Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a medium-sized casserole dish.
  2. Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
  3. In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper; blend thoroughly. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup of reserved asparagus liquid and the milk; cook (stirring constantly) until the sauce is thickened and smooth . If the mixture is too thick, more asparagus liquid or milk can be added until the mixture reaches the desired consistency. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper. Remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Layer the asparagus, eggs, cheese, and almonds into the casserole. Repeat the layering until all of the ingredients are used. Spoon the sauce over the layers and sprinkle with crumbs.
  5. Bake in the preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes; or until bubbly and lightly browned.

This is the best asparagus casserole I have ever had. My family prefers fresh asparagus, so I just made the substitution and it was still great!

Easy and fast. I will not make again. Probably would have been better with fresh asparagus, I thought it was mushy and the bread crumbs didn't brown.

One word, two syllables: YUMMM-MMMYYYY! The breadcrumbs didn't do so well on the top, so I just mixed em in after it cooked. Next time, I will just incorporate them. Great recipe.

My mother in law makes a variation of this recipe that is just fantastic. She uses fresh asparagus, quartered, and cooks them until they just start to soften (they finish cooking in the oven). Instead of layering the cheese, she creates a cheese sauce, and mixes that with the asparagus. Then layers that with the sliced boiled eggs. She also eliminates the almonds.. instead just tops the casserole with cheese and the breadcrumbs as written.

I made this recipe for Christmas dinner and it was really delicious. We ate dinner early and when it was time for a late snack this is the casserole I dug into. The only problem I came across was that when the recipe called for the eggs it didn't specify how the eggs were supposed to be added. It should have said beaten or mixed or some other direction so I just whipped them together and added.

I will definately make this again many times. I used sprinkle cheddar cheese instead of cubes and doubled the amount. I used a wisk to blend the sauce and it came out very creamy and delicious. Great holiday dish!!

My family loved this! I would recommend using grated cheese instead of the cubes because the cubes just don't melt well and left big yellow spots all over the top of the casserole. I also used fresh asparagus.

Excellent! I made this dish for a church potluck and it went so fast I didn't get much more then a taste. The only change I made was instead of bread crumbs I used the Durkee Cheese Onions on top. I have been asked to make again. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!
