Asparagus Souffle
We call this souffle but I have no idea why. It is a mixture of white sauce and asparagus with cheese. We have tried cheddar cheese but it doesn't melt as well. This has been a staple at holiday dinners for as long as I can remember and I know my mom had it as a child too. Fresh asparagus also doesn't work.
