Years ago, mothers believed that the presence of toast and eggs with this meal helped children learn to eat a vegetable that is less familiar to them since it only would make it to the table seasonally. They would place the toast along the outer rim, lay sliced egg on top of the asparagus and pour the cream sauce over top of the egg and asparagus. I like it without the toast and eggs!!
