  • Reviews

  • “Full of cheesy goodness. The ham I used wasn’t an especially good addition as I don’t think it complimented the asparagus well.I used bacon on a few stalks as I ran out of ham and preferred the flavor.”

  • “Delicious. I substituted mozzarella for the cheddar to use what I had on hand, but I’m sure cheddar would be just as good. Will definitely make it again. Thanks.”

  • “These were really, really good!!There was a bit too much cheese sauce, for me, but the flavors were delightful.Will definitely make again next asparagus season.”
