Asparagus Cocktail


Step 1

Boil the asparagus. Cut into small pieces. Slice the ham into julienne strips. Peel the shallot and chop very finely. Chop some parsley fine. Mix 3/4 of the ham with the asparagus.

Step 2

Stir the mayonnaise and sour cream together and blend in the shallot, chopped parsley and a little lemon juice. Season the sauce with salt, pepper, Worcester sauce and a dash of brandy. Put the asparagus & ham mixture into cocktail glasses, pour a little sauce over and decorate the cocktail with the rest of the ham and a couple of reserved asparagus tips.

Step 3

Cut the hardboiled eggs into 6 segments. Place 3 segments on each cocktail and finally sprinkle with a little more parsley. Serve with a fresh baguette.
