Saw this on Martha Stewart one time and now can use the new method to get the tender asparagus first before I bake it--thanks to Sherry Parfait! Sometimes I substitute mozzarella cheese as Gruyere can be pricey. Watch for those sales!
Is this not the prettiest presentation? And the robust flavor is just as impressive. These would be perfect to serve at a cocktail party or maybe a ladies luncheon... any time you want to make a tasty splash!
