“Asparagus, Cheddar cheese, and slivered almonds combine to create a very elegant side dish for Thanksgiving!” - by michellej
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 8x8 inch baking dish.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk the milk into the flour mixture, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat, and whisk in the Cheddar cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
- Line the prepared baking dish with half of the asparagus spears. Pour in half of the cheese sauce, top with the remaining asparagus spears, then pour on the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the slivered almonds.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the asparagus is hot and the sauce is golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.

"This recipe was good. I used fresh asparagus, used 1/2 cup sharp cheese, and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. I had to bake it longer than 20 mins, about 35 mins. It was very rich tasting, I would even just..." See more use cheddar cheese next time. But definitely worth cooking again. Thanks!"
"I did modify this slightly by using fresh asparagus (I can't stand this particular veggie from a can) and it was all right. The cheese sauce came out a little thicker than I would have liked although ..." See morethe flavor was good. "
"I substituted bacon bits for slivered almonds and used fresh asparagus. I cooked the dish for an extra 15 minutes, covering with foil for 12 minutes, to make sure the asparagus was cooked. Ten minut..." See morees probably would have been sufficient as the asparagus turned out a little more cooked than I like. The cheese "sauce" turned out like mashed potatoes. It was okay but I probably won't make this again due to the consistency of the cheese and the lack of "depth" in this recipe."
