Baked Asparagus Patties

Yield 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion juice
  • 1 (15-ounce) can asparagus spears, drained and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups fine, dry breadcrumbs

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Combine milk and egg yolk, stirring well; gradually add to flour mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in salt, pepper, onion juice, and asparagus pieces; chill mixture thoroughly.

  2. Shape into patties, using about 1/4 cup mixture for each. Roll patties in breadcrumbs, and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Turn and bake an additional 5 minutes.
