What’s For Dinner Wednesday: Asparagus Polonese

1 Aug

Asparagus: always looking for new ways to prepare it!

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.


Simple ingredients are all that’s needed for this recipe.


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.

Make sure you have a hard boiled egg for use with this recipe!
