Asparagus Gratin

1 large bunch of green asparagus
80ml cream
5ml wholegrain mustard
5ml flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
2,5ml salt
black pepper
80ml Panko breadcrumbs
250ml mature cheddar cheese, grated

Set your oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 200℃.
Parboil the asparagus in salted water for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat, drain and plunge the asparagus into ice cold water for a minute. Drain on kitchen paper.
Arrange the asparagus in a gratin (any ovenproof) dish and set aside.
Stir the cream, mustard, flour, garlic and half the grated cheese together and season with salt and pepper.
Pour the mixture over the asparagus and top with the breadcrumbs and the remaining cheese.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Increase the oven temperature and grill until golden brown – about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately.
