Since he like his sauces to be very thick and creamy, instead of using a 1/4 of milk, I used a 1/4 cup of half and half cream. Also, I used sharp white chedder cheese and sprinkled in some dill weed, which made it flavorful and added some depth to the recipe. I'll definately use this recipe again.

I made this for our Christmas family get together and there was absolutely nothing left of the asparagus dish. My daughter-in-law was over heard saying 'this is one time that I wish I could lick my plate!' which is the greatest compliment I could have received. I used Gruyere cheese instead of the cheddar...yum. I LOVED it and will definitely make it again, & again, & again...

I did about 2 pounds of asparagus (I have a teenager) and so I cooked them for about 7 minutes, and they were perfect - I never thought to microwave them before! I didn't have Miracle Whip, so I used light mayonnaise, and jack cheese because I didn't have cheddar. Overall very yummy, will definitely make again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After seeing some of the reviews, I wasn't so sure about this recipe. After seeing some of the reviews, I wasn't so sure about this recipe. I had it on the side, just in case. Well, everyone really loved it. I added about 1/4 cup more cheese, but I think it would have been fine on its own. I cut up the asparagus and added some frozen corn, and everyone just put the cheese sauce on top. I would definitely make this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this recipe but with some changes. I made this recipe but with some changes. I am not a big fan of miracle whip so I just used mayo instead. Also I cooked the asparagus in the oven on a pan with olive oil and lemon juice and salt and pepper, and the cheese sauce in a pot on the stove. I add more cheese, otherwise it tastes a little too much like mayo.

My husband and I were not so sure on the taste of the sauce but over all it was ok. I'll try a different sauce next time and maybe even adding a little bit of a lemon herb mixture to it for extra taste. Very good for a quick side though. **2thumbs up!

We were also having brown rice and Chipotle shrimp. The sauce tasted good on those two items as well. My husband thought it might be good on grilled chicken. I may try that.

I didn't have cheddar cheese so I improvised and used parmsean cheese in place. He raved about the great taste and I was surprised at how easy it was to make this way!
