Asparagus Casserole

Rick Pottorf


This came from a Southern Lady that I have so much respect for. She's a fine cook from Jackson, Mississippi. This was served to me in Florida where I was station in the Navy. I had not tasted Asparagus until that time. I was only 21 at the time. This was a side dish that I could have made it the whole course and that would have been fine. I just could not get enough of it. I begged for the recipe. So here it is. It was done with canned Asparagus. I have never done it with fresh. Should work. But the flavor of canned Asparagus is really good. I used to can it when I could get it bulk.
