I don't make any comment on lemon jello.....
Two very simple ways, that I was sure to be the most common....
Eggs and asparagus. Boil asparagus, than put it in a pan with some butter, and crash two eggs over. Simple, quick and good. Possibly, use the white ones, those fully edible.
Asparagus and bacon. An appetizer. Use only the green points of asparagus: boil them, wind up four or five of them with a slice of bacon, and put in the oven till bacon is crispy.

My favorite is probably just to drizzle a little oil on them, a dash of salt, and then onto the drill with 'em!

They go great with just about any type of grilled food.

I like mine with butter and lemon. Another favorite is to par-boil or steam the asparagus, lay in a glass baking dish and top with slices of hard boiled eggs, and then sharp cheddar cheese. Bake until cheese is golden. Very yummy, though not terribly healthy.

I like to saute mine for a few minutes in a little olive oil and a pat of butter with a bit of minced garlic, S&P, then give them a good squeeze of lemon juice, cover, reduce heat, and let steam until tender.
Any leftover cooked asparagus you have is wonderful on a salad the next day.
We also like it in creamy pasta dishes and stir fries.

We also actually like canned asparagus spears too...just chill them in the fridge and serve with a dollup of your favorite salad dressing. Kim likes his with French or Catalina. I like mine naked. If you want to be fancy, garnish with a few strips of pimento.

Be reminded that Asparagus does not need to be COOKED Like modern corn on the cob it only has to be made hot enough to hold the butter.
I could not agree more. I think most of us disliked many veggies that we were served as children because they were severly over cooked. Who wants a mushy veg? Asparagas is good uncooked too.

I always make asparagas soup when the price is right or I have extra. Nothing better!

My S-I-L makes a casserole that she thinks is delicious and I think is barf time. Canned white asparagas, mushroom soup and hard boiled eggs. Maybe something else in it but I do not think so.

Thanks for all your ideas! I think I will try roasting them in the oven with some evoo, s&p and maybe some garlic for my first attempt. Will let you know how it turns out.

How long do you usually roast it and at what temp.?

RDG, I love asparagus in omelets...I'll try doing it your way. It sounds delicious.

Another eggey thought: How about putting your egg and asparagus on a toasted English muffin with a slice of cheese and a couple strips of bacon?

Or you could use Canadian bacon or proscuitto, lay on the asparagus, top with poached egg and Hollandaise Sauce. Hmmm...is that already a dish?
