    I think I am falling for you. I love canned asparagus. Drained, heated, butter, salt, and pepper. I do like it roasted too, but the canned is a guilty pleasure for some reason.

    Makes a great creamy soup, though.

    I'll eat canned, but fresh is WAY better. The taste of canned is fine, texture is just wrong.

    The texture for me is the reason to eat it. I am NOT a fan of canned veggies. Emergency food. Asparagus though in the can is soft, and I don't get the woody texture there is with fresh.

    That DOES look pretty close. A few tweaks might just do it. Thanks.

    I always hear guys bitch about that, but I don't go around sniffing my pee!!! Besides, a good dose of Asparagus Piss makes for good fertilizer out the back door.

    I'm with you on this girl, not so much that I don't like canned vegetables. I don't mind some, but Canned Asparagus is nice and soft and when chilled I like to spear a piece with my fork and drag it through Mayonaise. Now THAT'S the bomb for me!!!

    My mother was Casserole Queen!!! She made a Squash Casserole to die for, and the one thing that topped that was her Crab Casserole.

    I put fresh and/or canned asparagus in my Alfredo Sauce. With the chicken it makes for a great pasta dish. And sometimes I fry bacon pieces and add to it.

    Re: Odd Southern veggie casserole thing.

    A Southern casserole can be pretty much anything ya got a lot of at the time in the garden. Green beans, snow peas, green peas, asparagus, squash, zucchini, to name a few. And some/most will have some kind of meat in them, like chopped up ham, bacon, or beef, chicken, turkey, or some wild meat. And cheese; gotta have cheese in it. And a lot have a little milk in them, too. Ritz crackers are in/on some, and the onions on top used to be homemade by slicing the onion fine and chopping up into small slivers the size of store bought onion crunchies, dipped in egg whites and dredged in flour, and fried in a big cast iron skillet with lard or bacon/sausage grease that's screaming hot.

    I'm glad that worked cause I asked my SIL and she said she's never heard of it. But she also said it sounded pretty good so im thinking I might be getting that for supper next time I go visit...
