Eggs are the star of this hearty breakfast fare. Filled with tasty ingredients like ham, mushrooms, cheddar cheese and asparagus, this dish is super. You can prepare it the night before for a no-fuss breakfast, brunch or dish to pass.—Maryellen Hays, Fort Wayne, Indiana

"It was ok, not great. It was mushy and left my family wanting something else."

"Made this for a bunch of gals that were scrapbooking for the weekend. They all loved it and left me with an empty dish. I love it also and especially the fact that I could make it the night before. Simple and easy! Thank You!"

"Sounded good but was more like mush. Really needs day old or crusty bread anything but fresh. I used diced ham and that was a mistake. Prepackaged cubed seemed too big but would have been better in this recipe. I also used reduced fat cheese. It' hard to tell there is even cheese in the recipe."
