This family-favorite casserole is perfect for all occasions. But it's especially nice for an Easter brunch—the ham, hard-cooked eggs and asparagus in it are so much a part of that special day. Cinnamon-flavored yeast bread makes a tasty accompaniment for this easy casserole, as do rolls.

"Made this today and it was really good. I didn't pre-cook my fresh asparagus and it was perfect. I was a little generous with my ingredients, so I added a whole can of soup and 3/4 cup of milk, along with another tablespoon of tapioca to thicken it all up. It was delicious."

"Made this with fresh asparagus from the garden and diced ham frozen from Easter. Great flavor blend and we went back for seconds. Can't wait to make this for the grown kids and grandkids."

"Made this tonight for DH and I. I did make a few changes to the recipe........Instead of Velveeta, I used about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. I added about 1/4 cup of French's Fried Onions to the casserole and instead of the bread crumbs and butter.....I garnished the top of the casserole with more of the French fried onions...(the ones used for Green Bean casserole). I put the onions over the casserole in the last 7 minutes of the bake time. Oh...I also added one can of french cut green beans! Can't wait to make this again! It would be great for a brunch also!"
