"The photo of this recipe looks like my mother made it and I have made it. Basically toast tips underneath an asparagus cheese sauce with sliced eggs on top. However the directions are very unclear. They sound as if you are to make a casserole and serve with toast on the side. In fact it says "serve with toast" not "serve on toast". This recipe sure requires a lot of dirty pans. So...which is it for this recipe?"
