Earlier this year I posted about asparagus and the fact that I needed to find some new ways to prepare it since my family liked it so much. I also noted in that post that I’d long forgotten about a recipe my mom used to make when we had asparagus at home growing up. I promised that when I made it, I’d post it.
In keeping with that promise, here is my mom’s recipe for Asparagus Polonese, which got thumbs up from my family when I made it earlier this summer. It’s not something I’d make all the time because of all the butter in it, but it’s a great way to mix things up when you’re looking for some variety in your meals.
1 pound asparagus
5 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1 mashed hard cooked egg yolk
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons bread crumbs
Place butter in a small frying pan.
When hot, add mashed yolk and bread crumbs.
Cook two minutes.
Pour over steamed (or sauteed) asparagus, serve immediately.
