Creamy Cheddar Asparagus
I got this recipe from Seasons and Suppers.
I did half of the original recipe, it was a good side dish for 2 people.
-1/2 bunch asparagus, trimmed of woody ends (about 20 spears)
-1 Tbsp. butter
-3 Tbsp. flour
-1/2 cup milk
-1 egg yolk
-3/4 cups grated white cheddar
-salt and pepper
|Cut the ends off the asparagus.|
|Melt the butter, then add the flour.|
Take off the heat, mix in the milk, add egg yolk, mustard,
and salt. Heat again for 2-3 minutes.
|I poured the sauce over the asparagus then|
added the cheese on top, but next time I make this I would
melt the cheese in the sauce then pour over the asparagus
to make a thicker sauce so it wouldn't run so much.
|Bake at 400 for 8 minutes, then broil for 1 minute.|
This didn't look as good as I had hoped, but I think if next time I melt the cheese and the sauce together it will hold together more and look better. The taste combination was good, and asparagus goes well with most main dishes.
