My mom made this when I was a kid. My wife makes it for me often. It's easy and delicious. I am not a big fan of asparagus prepared any other way. I like to pour over one slice of toast, add another on top, and then pour more over it.

I'm still not sure if it was totally great idea but what I decided to do with this recipe was to roast the asparagus, (which is on sale now) covered with bacon slices and I roasted it all at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. At that point, the asparagus was nicely done, but the bacon wasn't. So, I put the bacon back in and roasted it for another 15 minutes until it was crisp. At that point, I then poured the bacon drippings into a saute pan and I made the roux. Once it was thickened enough, I topped my toasted bread slices with the roasted asparagus, followed by the roux, my now crumbled bacon, and just a few shreds of cheese. It was absolutely delicious! I will do it again but next time I will roast the asparagus separately from the bacon because of those pesky differences in cooking times. Haha. Read More

Made this for hubby and I with freshly picked asparagus. Yummy!! Tasted just like his Gram's. One added step I'll take for next batch is to cut the asparagus before boiling. If that was in the steps, I missed it, but would make eating a little easier. Really tasty!! Read More

Tasted great. Added a handful of grated cheddar. Made the cleanup a bit more difficult but worth it. Chopped asparagus into segments before adding to sauce. Read More
