Looking for a dish that will celebrate the special men in your life on Fathers' Day...or any day? Scalloped Asparagus does just that! It's a very flavorful dish that combines flavors in a most delicious way! The recipe says it takes 40 minutes total to make and you should allow all of that, plus a few extra minutes...just in case! If this is one of several dishes being served, it will feed 5-6; otherwise plan on feeding 4.
I didn't have grated shredded swiss cheese in the fridge, so I used thin slices cut in half to top this dish. In retrospect, I would highly recommend the shredded cheese, so the flavors will blend better and will be easier to spoon onto plates.
If you are a cheese-eating vegetarian, this recipe is one you will want to keep handy. The dish is hearty and would make a great meal with nothing more than a garden salad to compliment it!
The amount of cayenne pepper is just right for adults, but may not appeal to young children. This would also be fabulous for brunch. A few bacon crumbles on top could put it over the top!
So go ahead and spoil those men this weekend with Scalloped Asparagus. They are sure to love it almost as much as they love their families!
