  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed

  • ½ (2.2 pound) wheel Brie cheese, sliced

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup toasted sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place asparagus in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still crisp, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain and place in a shallow baking dish.

  3. Lay cheese slices over asparagus. In a small bowl combine melted butter, bread crumbs and sesame seeds. Sprinkle over cheese.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes.

  5. Increase oven to broil. Broil just until breadcrumbs are golden brown.
