My mother keeps us supplied with fresh asparagus from the huge patch she grows, and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. I found this recipe in our local newspaper, and it has been a family favorite ever since.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 3 slices white or whole wheat bread, crumbled
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed


  • 1. In a skillet, melt butter; saute bread crumbs until golden. Stir in the egg, parsley and salt.
  • 2. Meanwhile, cook asparagus in a small amount of water until crisp-tender; drain and transfer to a platter. Spoon topping over asparagus. Yield: 8 servings.

"I use 3 slices of whole wheat bread, coarsely crumbled. This works very well for me, so I suspect it was the original intended amount in the recipe. I think this is an elegant presentation for asparagus and a nice complement to the taste as well."

"Would like to try this recipe, but bread quantity is vague . . . are these slices of bread cut or cubed? In directions it says bread crumbs . . . would it be 3 Tablespoons of bread crumbs. Please advise."
