Fresh Asparagus & Hollandaise Casserole {with Concord Foods Hollandaise Sauce Mix}

Give the ever-classic asparagus and Hollandaise pairing a tasty little twist ~ enjoy it as creamy and delicious Fresh Asparagus & Hollandaise Casserole!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Concord Foods.
The combination of asparagus and Hollandaise sauce is certainly a classic one.  In fact, some say asparagus isn't complete without its Hollandaise partner!  The buttery, lemony flavors of the sauce just complement asparagus so beautifully.

So what did I do when I decided to get creative with this classic pairing?  Well ... create an Asparagus & Hollandaise Casserole, of course!
A creamy casserole with crisp fresh asparagus bathed in lemony Hollandaise sauce, topped with buttery bread crumbs, to be exact.


But you know, Hollandaise sauce can be a tad bit ... well ... persnickety to make.  With double boilers ... and whisking and whisking and whisking ... and potential turning-to-scrambled-eggs involved.

Fortunately, if you'd like {and I do like}, there's a much simpler way to whip up this classic sauce ... with Concord Foods' Hollandaise Sauce Mix!


With Concord Foods' Hollandaise Sauce Mix, making Hollandaise sauce is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1.  Open the sauce mix packet ...

2.  Combine the sauce mix with a bit of water, and ...


3.  Briefly whisk until the sauce comes to a boil and thickens.


That's it!  Pretty simple, right?

Well, to enjoy this simple way to whip up classic Hollandaise sauce,  simply look for Concord Foods Hollandaise Sauce Mix in the produce section of your local grocery store.

And then, may I suggest, mixing the wonderfully easy Hollandaise sauce up into this creamy casserole?


'Cause this Fresh Asparagus & Hollandaise Casserole is a tasty little twist on the classic asparagus-Hollandaise combination ... A tasty little twist made easy by Concord Foods.
