A pretty aperitif that can be prepared the night before.

  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 6 slices bread
  • 1 6 oz package shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg

Directions

  • Plunge asparagus in boiling water for 2 to 4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears. Drain and rinse immediately with cold water.
  • Grease a 13 x 9 casserole dish. Layer six slices of bread in the bottom of the dish. Top with Swiss cheese.
  • In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and seasonings. Pour into casserole dish. Neatly arrange asparagus spears on top of casserole. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or up to 10 hours.
