Thrifty.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Asparagus 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pimiento 1 , chopped
  Eggs 3 , lightly beaten
  Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 4 Ounce (1 Cup)
  Fine dry bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Bring about 1 inch of lightly salted water to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Break off the tough stem ends of the asparagus as far down as the stalks snap easily. Gut the stalks into 1-inch pieces, add to the boiling water, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Drain.
2. In an ungreased 1 1/2-quart casserole, mix the asparagus, salt, pepper, pimiento, eggs, cheese, 3/4 cup of the bread crumbs, and the milk. Dot with the butter, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, and bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes, or until almost firm.
