8. A Vintage Recipe

Be sure to check out our vintage recipe archive online at: http://bit.ly/1vDXn6h. Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.

Last week Janet B requested a recipe using asparagus and hard boiled eggs. We received several!

1 can (all green) asparagus spears, drained (use as 1st liquid in sauce)
3 hard boiled eggs, grated
1 recipe of white sauce, with sharp cheese, grated
Bread crumbs for topping

Put asparagus in greased casserole dish (8 x 8 inch approximately).
Add eggs; cut and mix. Add cheese sauce.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

Hope it will re-create the yumminess for Janet B.

Jaci B. Carrollton, VA


Here is another recipe that is similar:

1 tall can asparagus spears
1/2 c. soft bread cubes, bite size
1 tbsp. melted butter
4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1 c. Velveeta or American cheese, grated


3 tbsp. flour
1/4 c. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. half and half cream
2 well beaten egg yolks


1/2 c. soft bread cubes, bite size
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/4 c. pimento, cut in strips

Cut asparagus spears lengthwise. Put 1/2 cup of bread cubes in bottom
of buttered casserole. Alternate layers of eggs, cheese and asparagus.
Blend flour into butter, slowly add salt and cream. Cook over low heat
until smooth and mixture boils. Beat egg yolks and mix in a little of
the cooked sauce. Combine this with remainder of cooked sauce and
return to heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Spread cream sauce
over the casserole. Top cream casserole with 1/2 cup of buttered bread
cubes and pimento strips. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
Serves 4.

Asparagus Casserole

2 (15 ounce) cans of asparagus
2 cups of grated cheddar cheese, divided
4 eggs, boiled and chopped
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
2 cups of milk
1 teaspoon of salt
Pinch of black pepper
1 small can of mushrooms

Preheat oven 375 degrees F. Drain asparagus but reserve the liquid. Split the ingredients and
in two layers, add asparagus, 1-1/2 cups of the cheese divided (reserving the remaining 1/2 cup
for the top), eggs and mushrooms to a buttered casserole dish. Melt butter in a saucepan, stir
in flour, cook for 2 minutes, gradually stir in the milk until fully incorporated. Season to
taste with salt and pepper and loosen sauce as needed with the reserved asparagus juice. Pour
over the casserole and top with cheese. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees F for about 20 to 25
minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
Carol T--Cullman,AL


1 can asparagus spears (drain asparagus, save liquid)
Note: I also use a small can of cut asparagus tips and spears and double the white sauce.
1 lb. grated sharp cheddar cheese
Diced pimento
Boiled eggs
Blanched almonds (optional)

Make a white sauce using 4 tablespoons butter, 4 tablespoons flour, 2 cups milk (For more asparagus flavor use 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of asparagus liquid mixed.) Melt butter over medium heat, stir in flour, stirring constantly. Then add milk gradually, add pinch of salt. Keep stirring until sauce thickens.
Grease casserole dish. Put layer of asparagus, layer of grated cheese, diced pimento, boiled egg slices and then a layer of the white sauce. Alternate layers until all used up. Top with bread crumbs. Bake at 350 until bubbly.

This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.
If you have a vintage recipe request send it to recipes@tias.com and we might just publish it here.

We didn't get any responses for this recipe. Anyone have something similar?

I have always loved the pizza from Jerry's Pizza in Mt. Pleasant, IA because they have the best thin cracker crust I've ever had. Does anyone have a recipe for a crust like this?
