    jellie's Note:

    I was disappointed with the lack of variation and uses for asparagus; I don't eat much that requires a side dish and stratas are too time-consuming for one person. I came up with this and it is TASTY! If I had tomato, I would have put that in there at the end too. It could also be done in a sandwich maker much more easily! I dip mine in ketchup--I guess that's the only non-grownup part :o)

    Serves: 1



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat a frying pan or griddle and spray with cooking spray or melt butter/margarine over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Break off bottoms of asparagus spears at the point they naturally break.
    3. 3
      Sauté for several minutes.
    4. 4
      At the same time, either butter your bread or place it plain on the griddle or pan.
    5. 5
      Top with one slice of cheese.
    6. 6
      Do the same with the other slice.
    7. 7
      When asparagus is tender-crisp, place it on top of one slice of bread.
    8. 8
      Place other slice on top and continue frying to melt the cheese.
    9. 9
      When the bread is nicely toasted and the cheese is melted enough to hold on the asparagus, remove from heat season with salt and pepper to your liking.

      What a great way to prepare one of my favorite vegtables (asparagus)!!! I also topped it off with a slice of tomato. This proves again you don't always have to spend a lot of time, money and preparation to make a wonderful meal. Thank you so much for sharing this, Jellie. :-)
