Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly butter an 8 inch baking dish.

Step 2

Steam or microwave asparagus only until barely tender; immediately rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry and set aside.

Step 3

Heat milk in the microwave until it is hot but not boiling.

Step 4

Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 3 Tbsp of butter. Add the flour, and whisk for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in hot milk.

Step 5

Increase the heat to medium and bring milk to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened (about 5 minutes).

Step 6

Whisk in wine, Dijon mustard, and nutmeg. Add cheese and whisk until melted. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Arrange bread slices, overlapping as needed, in the prepared baking dish.

Step 8

Pour the cheese sauce over the asparagus and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.

Step 9

Bake until the sauce is bubbling and golden brown – about 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
