The original recipe for this wonderful egg dish called for sausage, but fresh asparagus is tasty—and healthier, too! I serve this easy,elegant dish with a salad and mini pecan rolls.—Amy Grover, Salem, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 6 bread slices, crust removed and cubed
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add asparagus; boil, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Drain and immediately place asparagus in ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the asparagus, milk, bread cubes, eggs, cheese and salt. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and refrigerate for 5 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
