Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 bunch (1 lb/450 g) asparagus cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 3 shallots thinly sliced
  • 10 cups cubed day-old bread
  • 2 cups shredded Canadian Gouda cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 10 eggs
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

In skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook asparagus and shallots, stirring occasionally, until asparagus is tender-crisp, about 6 minutes.

In lightly greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish, toss together asparagus mixture, bread, half of the cheese and the parsley.

Whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper; pour over bread mixture, pressing to submerge. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Uncover and bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until puffed, golden and set enough that centre does not jiggle when gently shaken, about 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
