This is a great way to serve asparagus for your holiday dinner. It’s rich and creamy, and everything is better with cheese.
Asparagus au gratin
1 lb. asparagus, rinsed and dried
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Place your asparagus in a buttered dish- in a medium saucepan, melt butter and flour, cooking for 1-2 minutes. Then add your milk, a little at a time, until you’ve whisked it all together and it’s nice and thick. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top your asparagus with cheese, and then cover with your sauce. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes until hot and bubbly.
