  1. In a large covered pot, steam asparagus 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender but still bright green. Remove from the pot and arrange in a single layer in a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream, horseradish, and garlic salt; spoon over asparagus. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter and bread crumbs; sprinkle over the asparagus.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and adjust the oven rack so that it is about 3 inches from the heat source.
  4. Broil asparagus 1 to 2 minutes, until the topping is toasted, taking care to watch closely to prevent over browning.

This is a wonderful way to do asparagus; definitely a keeper! After reading the reviews about all the sauce, I cut back on the sour cream to 1 cup and kept the horseradish the same. Due to a whe...
