Asparagus Onion Casserole Recipe

This vegetable dish goes great with just about any meal. I've prepared it ahead of time, then popped it in the oven so it's ready with the meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces or 2 packages (10 ounces each) asparagus cuts, thawed
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute asparagus and onions in 1 tablespoon of butter until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.
  • 2. In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • 3. Reduce heat. Add the cream cheese, salt and pepper; stir until cheese is melted. Pour over vegetables. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over casserole.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"Made this for Mothers Day. Loved by everyone. A new favorite! I used sweet onions, and only baked until bread crumbs were brown so asparagus remained crisp tender."

"Wanted to try something new. Love this and now serve if often. The recipe doubles well. Served it to a man who hates asparagus and he went back for seconds!"

"After adding 12 oz of cubed smoked ham this became a complete meal with a great smoky flavor. Very good especially after adding some garlic as suggested in the above comment.

Instead of using butter with the bread crumbs I used two Tablespoons of olive oil and still had a nice brown crust.
