This recipe was a happy little accident. I originally intended to make a butternut squash gratin, but when I cut into my butternut squash it was a rotting mess. Luckily, Chantal had some asparagus for me, so my butternut squash gratin happily became my asparagus gratin.

You don’t *really* need a recipe for this. In fact, I didn’t actually measure anything, so I’m just going to give you some approximations – adjust any and everything to your liking!

You’ll need asparagus, red onion, panko or breadcrumbs, heavy cream and comté cheese (or comparable cheese of your choice).

Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Ooh, a little squeeze of lemon juice might be nice on this too. Try that and report back!
