MY SISTER created this recipe and shared it with me. I always serve it on special holidays, particularly Easter. My husband says he hates asparagus, but he loves this casserole. He doesn't know he's eating his "enemy vegetable"! -Joyce Allison, Millsap, Texas

"Made the casserole for Easter dinner. Everyone loved it, but why the hard boiled eggs?"

"I have had this since I was young, my mother,grandmother and great grandmother always fixed this for Easter dinner. It's been a tradition in our family for over sixty years. I too, fix it several times a year, and the reviews are right, people who say they don't like asparagus love it. The only thing we do different is used buttered breadcrumbs on top instead of the potato chips. I now use buttered panko crumbs because I like the crunch."
