2 Tbs (30 ml) soft butter
6 slices white or whole wheat bread
18 spears cooked asparagus
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp (5 ml) Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp (2 ml) Worcestershire sauce
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
3/4 cup (180 ml) grated Gruyere, Swiss, or sharp Cheddar cheese
Spread the butter on the bread and arrange on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Place three asparagus spears on each slice of bread. Whip the egg whites until
stiff. Whisk together the egg yolks, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and
pepper. Add the cheese to the egg yolk mixture and fold into the egg whites.
Divide the egg mixture between the slices of bread, mounding it high in the
center of each. Bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven until puffed and lightly
browned, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
