Asparagus Cheese Casserole

4 Comments

As quick easy casserole recipes go, this asparagus cheese casserole is a doozy! It's definitely quick, and the whole family is sure to love the cheesy goodness. Yum!

Serves: 12

Cooking Time: 30 min

Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 10 1/2 ounces frozen asparagus spears, cooked and drained
  • 2 large eggs, hard-cooked, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup minced blanched almonds
  • 1 cup soft white bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a medium saucepan set over moderate heat, melt the butter.  Spoon 4 teaspoons of the melted butter into a bowl. Set aside.
     
  3. Blend the flour, salt, pepper and mace into the rest of the butter and let it sit over low heat for 1-to-2 minutes.
     
  4. Add the milk and cream and cook the sauce, stirring constantly for about 3 minutes, until it has become thick and smooth.
     
  5. In a well-buttered, 2-quart casserole, alternate layers of the asparagus, eggs, Cheddar cheese and almonds.
     
  6. Pour the cream sauce over the layers.
     
  7. Combine the reserved butter, bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and scatter the topping over the surface of the casserole.
     
  8. Bake the uncovered casserole for about 30 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and the topping is tipped with brown.

I'd like nutrition info on this, without whipping cream since I used 1% milk instead.

Kkay, the recipe you came up with for asparagus spears sounds delicious! I'll definitely have to try making them this way. Do you use fresh or frozen asparagus. I would use fresh if it were available and frozen if not. My DH DOES NOT like asparagus at all so when I make it, I have go figure out how to make it just for one. With your recipe that is done for me. Thank you so much for your recipe! Also, I am looking for an asparagus casserole recipe that my mamaw Hunt used to make. I don't know if I'll ever find that recipe since their house burned in 1993, and mamaw passed away in 1987. The problem is, neither my mother, her sister or her brother got her recipes out of the house after she died so everything was lost in the fire. She used saltine crackers, hard boiled eggs, some kind of cream soup or maybe it was just heavy cream(not sure about that one) and seems like it had a layer of cheese in it and on top of it. It was a layered casserole, I do remember that, I just cannot remember the order of the layers. It does seem that the hard boiled egg layer was topped with the slices of cheese. I know this is not a low calorie casserole, but I would love to have the recipe just to get to taste it again. I have searched for years for this recipe and would just be thrilled if anyone has a recipe or knows where I can find a recipe like I remember. Thank you so much for all your help!

Yes I have a healthy version, actually a completely different recipe. Saute spears in a drizzle of olive oil with finely chopped garlic cloves, with ground pepper and sea salt to taste. I sometimes top it with a little hormel bacon bits. Not the fake crunchy ones. Do all of this in a non-stick skillet on the stove top, and do it till it is tender and slightly charred or blackened. YUMMMM, just had some last night. Lots of flavor and shed a ton of fat and calories. You could also add sliced rings of onions so they would carmelized while cooking.

Does anyone have a healthy version of this casserole? Milk, flour, butter, whipping cream, and cheese make for TONS of fat and calories. I love asparagus, and would like some new ways to serve it, but this recipe is way too unhealthy and fattening. I don't know how to make it healthier, though.
