So, for 2 servings we need:
- 12 oz trimmed asparagus spears- 4 tbsp salted butter, plus extra for the form- 3 tbsp all-purpose flour- 3/4 cup whole milk- 4 large eggs, separated- 4 oz Gorgonzola cheese- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the asparagus in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, then drain, allow to cool and finely chop.
