 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  C.            milk
    1      Lb.           fresh asparagus
    1 1/2  C.            shredded Cheddar cheese
    4                    beaten eggs
    8      Slices        stale bread
    2      Tbsp.         minced onion
    1 1/2  Tsp.          salt
      1/8  Tsp.          black pepper
    2      Tbsp.         melted butter
 
 Cook and drain asparagus. Remove crusts from bread
 slices and cut into cubes. Arrange half of bread in the bottom
 of a buttered 10 x 6 x 2-inch baking dish. Cover bread with
 asparagus cut in pieces (can use canned pieces rather than
 fresh or frozen, cooked asparagus). Sprinkle with shredded
 cheese. Cover with remaining bread. Beat eggs slightly and
 add milk, minced onion, seasonings and butter. Pour over
 mixture in dish. Let stand 20 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to
 50 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. Can substitute
 broccoli pieces for asparagus. Serves 6.
