Asparagus and Fontina Sformato

The word sformato comes from the Italian verb sformare, meaning "to unmold." A sformato is a soft, usually savory, custard that is baked in a mold (or individual molds as here), turned out onto a serving plate and served warm. Besciamella (bechamel sauce) often serves as the base to which vegetables, meat or cheese are added. This cheese and asparagus version can serve as a side dish or the main dish of a luncheon. Buttering the ramekins and lining the bottom with parchment paper assures that the custards will unmold easily.

This has become my signature dish at our B&B. It's a bit time consuming to make it in the am, I found that I can cut the tips off the asparagus, and hold them aside...then cook the asparagus stems and assemble the mixture the night before. All I have to do in the am is pour it into the ramekins and bake. While they are baking I give the asparagus tips a quick steam. This dish always gets rave reviews.
Pros: Impressive, Appearance, taste

good as a side plate. Easy to make, beautiful and its flavour is delicate.
Instead of fontina, which I did not found,
I used gouda.

Pros: Good Value, Appearance, Will Make Again
