Asparagus Eggs Benedict

Asparagus Eggs Benedict

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3/4 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 and 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 pound sliced ham - diced
  • 5 hard cooked eggs - quartered
  • 4 English muffins
Cup asparagus into 1/2 inch pieces. Cook in a small amount of water until it changes color (about 2 minutes), drain and set aside.

Melt margarine in a 3-quart sauce pan. Stir in flour until smooth. Add broth, salt, cayenne pepper and bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add cheese, stir until it melts. Add eggs, ham and asparagus. Heat through. Serve over toasted English muffins.

I used to think asparagus and eggs weren't meant to be together... until I tried this. It's awesome!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank The Boss for this recipe.

You can use fried eggs or poached eggs. Just don't add them to the sauce. Place eggs over toast and then cover with sauce.

When do you add the milk? I added it at the end (because I forgot.) I ended up using about half and it came out like a cheese sauce.
