This is a tradition in my husband’s home.   It makes a very rich casserole.


  • 1 can asparagus, drained
  • 1 can small peas
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 small can sliced water chestnuts
  • 4+ slices white bread, sliced in 1 inch strips
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


  • Layer asparagus in a 2 quart casserole dish.  In a separate bowl, mix next 5 ingredients and put on top of asparagus. Dip bread in butter and add on top.  Bake at 350* for 25 minutes.


  • Ask my husband what he and his brother and sister used to call this casserole.
