Potluck Eggs Benedict

Asparagus spears give this hearty breakfast dish big springtime flavor. It's super served over warm fluffy biscuits...and a great way to use up extra hard-cooked eggs.

Yield

10 to 12 servings

Ingredients

1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
3/4 cup butter, cubed
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk
1 (14.25 ounce) can chicken broth
1 pound cubed fully cooked ham
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
8 hard-cooked eggs, quartered
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
10 to 12 biscuits, warmed

Directions

Cut asparagus into 1/2-inch pieces, using only tender parts of spears. Cook in a small amount of boiling water until tender, about 5 minutes; drain. Set aside to cool.

Melt butter in a saucepan; stir in flour until smooth. Add milk and broth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add ham and cheese; stir until cheese is melted. Add eggs, salt, cayenne and asparagus; heat through. Serve over biscuits.
