Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook asparagus in 1/2 cup boiling water for 3 minutes (asparagus still will be crisp). Drain, reserving liquid. Add enough milk to the cooking liquid to measure 2 cups liquid.

  • For sauce, in a medium saucepan, melt the 1/3 cup butter; stir in flour, salt (if you like), and pepper. Stir in milk mixture all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in pimiento.

  • Cover bottom of a greased 1-1/2-quart casserole with half of the asparagus, reserving 6 asparagus tips for garnish. Arrange half of the eggs over asparagus. Spoon half of the sauce on top; sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and drizzle with the melted butter.

  • Bake in a 425 degree F oven about 20 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with reserved asparagus tips. Makes 4 main-dish or 6 side-dish servings.


To prepare the asparagus, wash and scrape off the scales, if you like. Break off the woody bases.
