I learned the fun of cooking as a child. I love to create as I cook— this recipe is a combination of several different asparagus dishes. It's also tasty with pieces of cooked duck added to the wild rice.

"I liked the mix of flavors but the thickening took away from it. I think I'll try this again but substitute a cup of cream of mushroom soup for the milk/flour/butter."

"We agreed with Lucajb about sauce needing additional flavor and added some Bavarian seasoning. We were a little short on the asparagus, so added a 4oz (drained) can of sliced mushrooms to compensate. Yup...phenomenal!"

"This is phenomenal!!! Big hit! This is so creamy and yummy.

I would not substitute the sour cream next time, though. I did not have any, so used the cream cheese instead. It was too bland. I did add a few drops of hot sauce for a little zip.
Wonderful recipe!"

"We substitute 8 oz cream cheese for the sour cream and top with parmesan cheese instead of the cheddar, It's a hands down Favorite annual venison dinner side dish"
