 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Fresh asparagus
  • 1/4 lb Butter
  • 1/2 c Flour
  • 2 c Milk
  • Salt & freshly ground black
  • -pepper to taste
  • 1 ds Nutmeg
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 1/4 lb Grated Swiss cheese


Select a pan in which the asparagus will be able to lie flat. Add 1/2 inch
water & bring to a boil. Wash asparagus thoroughly. Place in the boiling
water; cover & cook 10 minutes. Melt the butter in a separate saucepan over
low heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Add milk & simmer 10 minutes,
stirring constantly. Preheat broiler. When asparagus is done, drain &
remove gently, so as not to break the tender tips, to a casserole dish.
Keep warm. When milk-roux mixture has cooked 10 minutes, season with salt,
pepper & nutmeg. Remove from heat & blend in egg yolks thoroughly. Pour
sauce over asparagus. Sprinkle with cheese & place under broiler only until
cheese turns golden brown.
