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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings

  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
