"This is a great side dish that goes well with beef entrees. It combines sour cream, horseradish and garlic salt in a creamy sauce. My friend Libby makes this all the time for her dinner parties!"

  1. In a large covered pot, steam asparagus 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender but still bright green. Remove from the pot and arrange in a single layer in a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream, horseradish, and garlic salt; spoon over asparagus. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter and bread crumbs; sprinkle over the asparagus.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and adjust the oven rack so that it is about 3 inches from the heat source.
  4. Broil asparagus 1 to 2 minutes, until the topping is toasted, taking care to watch closely to prevent over browning.

My fiance made this dish for me and it turned out to be one of my favourites yet. Easy and delicious! I would recommend using more than the 1 lbs of asparagus though. There was plenty of sauce to go around.

i was so disappointed in this. i absolutely loved the sauce - before i put it on the asparagus and then broiled it. something happened to the consistency of it when it went in the oven. it looked terrible. i won't make this one again. i do, however, think that the sour cream/horseradish mixture would be great as a sauce on top of a burger or roast beef sandwich.

I made this for Easter dinner. I adjusted the recipe as follows: 4 lbs asparagus, 2 cups reduced fat sour cream, 3 Tbsp butter, 1.5 cups bread crumbs, 3Tbsp horseradish, garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste. I quadrupled the asparagus called for, and only added 1/2 cup more sour cream, and everyone thought there was more than enough sauce. The entire thing took less than 20 minutes to assemble and cook.

Really good and different way to prepare asparagus. As others have said you could use more asparagus because there was more than enough sauce. Be careful not to burn them at the end.

Unlike the previous review, this was a huge Christmas success! I used the recommended ingredients and followed the recipe to the letter, and I got nothing but compliments! It was delicious and simple - I highly recommend it!

This is AWESOME; easy, quick and a beautiful presentation. Will make again and would be great for a lovely holiday dish to bring and share. (I did decrease the amounts of the sour cream sauce and could have halved that portion of the recipe.)

Very delicious, quick, and easy. I made half the amount of sauce and it was the perfect amount. The crispiness of the bread crumbs is amazing. I would definitely make this for guests because it looks appealing as well.

This is a wonderful way to do asparagus; definitely a keeper! After reading the reviews about all the sauce, I cut back on the sour cream to 1 cup and kept the horseradish the same. Due to a wheat allergy, I had to find a gluten-free alternative to the bread crumbs, so I used finely chopped/ground nuts. Very easy to make, too.
