About this recipe: A savoury Charlotte with bread, Cheddar and asparagus. You can make it with tinned and fresh asparagus. Both versions taste great to me.

My mom has been making this recipe for 20+ years. It became a tradition for my Christmas dinner and I just took it out of the oven. Super easy to make and so delicious. - 25 Dec 2014
