Snap off and discard woody bases from fresh asparagus (see photo, below). If desired, scrape off scales. Cook fresh asparagus, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 4 to 6 minutes or till crisp-tender. (Or, cook frozen asparagus according to the package directions.) Drain; keep warm.
Meanwhile, for sauce, beat whipping cream just till stiff peaks form. Fold in mayonnaise, green onion, mustard, and, if desired, egg. Spoon sauce atop asparagus. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
