    Jeff Hixson's Note:

    This savory flan has an intense asparagus flavor. Its texture is unusually tender for a flan, without a trace of egginess. Originally posted by Mean Chef.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    For flan

    For sauce

    • 1/4 lb italian fontina, rind discarded and cheese coarsely grated (or cut into 1/4-inch dice if too soft to grate)
    • 1/2 cup whole milk
    • 2 large egg yolks
    • 1 tablespoon butter

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make flan: Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 325°F.
    2. 2
      Butter an 8- by 2-inch round cake pan and line bottom with a round of wax paper, then butter paper.
    3. 3
      3Steam asparagus in a steamer set over boiling water, covered, until very tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
    4. 4
      Purée asparagus in a food processor until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      (You will have about 2 cups purée.) Whisk together eggs, milk, cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a bowl, then whisk in asparagus purée.
    6. 6
      Pour asparagus mixture into pan and bake in a hot water bath until flan is set and a wooden pick or skewer inserted in center comes out clean, 50 minutes to 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Transfer pan to a rack to cool slightly, 10 to 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Make sauce while flan cools: Put all sauce ingredients in a metal bowl, then set bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.
    9. 9
      Heat sauce, whisking until cheese and butter are melted, and then stirring with a wooden spoon, until sauce is slightly thickened and registers 165°F on an instant-read thermometer, 5 to 8 minutes.
    10. 10
      Remove bowl from pan.
    11. 11
      Run a thin knife around edge of flan to loosen, then invert a serving plate over pan and invert flan onto plate.
    12. 12
      Remove pan and discard paper.
    13. 13
      Cut flan into wedges and serve immediately with sauce.
