As I flipped through the pages of one of my great aunt’s old cookbooks, I landed on a recipe for Asparagus and Peas with Cheese Sauce. Then, I realized this could be dangerous. I love cheesy veggies, especially baked cheesy veggies.
One of my favorite cheese covered veggies are these Cheesy Taters. I imagined this recipe would taste very similar and it did not let me down! This plate of delicious cheesy veggies would be perfect on your Easter dinner table or really any night of the week. My daughter loved these veggies, my son is still on the fence when it comes to veggies. Right now, my daughter is in the eats anything in her path stage!
My husband is not a big fan of peas or asparagus, but as soon as it was topped with cheese he was digging in too. The asparagus was much more tender and delicious being baked then how I have cooked it in the past.
