Asparagus spears give this hearty breakfast dish big springtime flavor. It's super served over warm fluffy biscuits...and a great way to use up extra hard-cooked eggs. — Pauline Van Breemen, Franklin, Indiana

"My family really enjoyed this recipe! I was looking for something I could make to use up several hard boiled eggs I had on hand before we left for a week's vacation. This was a perfect fit. I didn't have any asparagus on hand, so I substituted broccoli instead. I don't think my substitution was anything sub-par to the asparagus."

"Have made this for years, a family favorite, but we call it Creamed Ham and Eggs on Biscuits.....sometimes with and sometime without asparagus. It's great both ways, but I agree, not Eggs Benedict!!"

"Made this for a ladies breakfast at church. Very good. Everyone loved it. I doubled the recipe to serve 24 ladies and there was some left over. I brought it home and froze it. My husband and I had the leftover Benedict thawed and rewarmed a few weeks later and it still tasted good over some fresh tea biscuits. I wasn't sure how it would be with the milk etc. but the freezing did not hurt it. Will make it again."

"This was a big hit at Christmas brunch. I put it in the slow cooker to serve. Worked beautifully."
