Asparagus spamelt+

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Butter or margarine
¼ cup Flour
2 cups Milk
¾ cup Shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon White pepper
8 slices Spam (12 oz. can)
24 Asparagus spears, fresh or frozen, 5 to 6" long
¼ cup Mild salsa
½ cup Buttered bread crumbs

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook until thick. Gradually stir in milk and cook until bubbly and thickened. Stir in ½ cup Cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Spread the 2 3/4x3½ inch slices of Spam in bottom of 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Put Spam in oven for 5 minutes to soften for easier rolling. Cook asparagus spears for 4 minutes. Cool slightly and place 3 spears on each Spam slice. Roll up. Fasten with toothpick, if needed. Place in the pan. Cover with cheese sauce.

Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese. Sprinkle with crumbs. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Submitted By MARY RIEMERMAN On 09-30-95
