Asparagus, Egg and Cheese Casserole
This holiday favorite is the way to get everyone to eat a LOT
of asparagus, and like it. It wonderfully complements a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

3 tbsp grated onion
4 tbsp flour
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

Alternate layers of asparagus, egg slices and cheese slices, and sauce sprinkled with crumbs in a large, square baking dish. Top
