1/2 Cup(s) Milk
2 Egg yolks

1 Garlic clove, halved

Make fonduta: In a double boiler or a metal bowl set over a pan of
simmering water melt butter. Add Fontina and milk and heat, stirring
with a whisk, until cheese begins to melt. Whisk in yolks and cook,
stirring constantly with whisk, until smooth and thickened slightly,
about 7 minutes. Remove pan from heat and remove bowl from pan. Stir
sauce 1 minute while water in pan cools slightly. Return bowl to pan
and keep sauce warm over hot water (off heat), whisking occasionally
to eliminate skin that forms on surface. Preheat broiler. On a
baking sheet toast bread about 3 inches from heat, turning, until
golden, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Rub tops of crostini with
cut side of garlic and brush with oil. Season crostini lightly with
salt. Divide crostini among 4 plates and top with prosciutto. In a
deep 10- to 12-inch skillet bring 1 1/4 inches salted water to a boil
and cook asparagus until crisp-tender, about 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer
asparagus with tongs to a colander and drain. Divide asparagus among
crostini. Pour fonduta over them. Serves 4. Gourmet April 1995
