Overnight Asparagus Strata
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 40 min.
Sounds wonderful ! Can this be cut in half and use a 8x8 bake dish. It is only my husband and myself so 13x9 is a little to much
I'm not fond of asparagus, so I use broccoli. Delish!!
I make this every year. It's our News Years Tradition!
Has anyone successfully frozen this for a week before cooking?
I made this for a get together with friends we had not seen recently. It was a big hit. Not only was it delicious it is pretty with the green asparagus and red pepper. I did use chicken in place of the ham as our guests do not eat pork. Very good.
This goes right into my recipe file -- loved it. Missed the direction to toast the English muffins and will never bother doing it in the future - not needed. I also let the egg mixture sit on the English muffins only 1 hour and it was fine - would not have known it had English muffins in it. BTW - used total of 4 English Muffins. I put onions and garlic in most everything, so I boiled the asparagus on the stove with some salt and Mrs. Dash, emptied the pan and then chopped the red pepper, some red onion and 3 garlic cloves and sauted a few minutes in a bit of butter in the pan the asparagus had been in. With the added onions I decided to up the eggs to 12 instead of 8, and my 2 c milk mixture included a bit of whipped cream (leftover from another recipe). I really liked the egg to bread to fixin's ratio so would do it the same again (I did include ham in it). I also used up a bit of sharp cheddar cheese in with the Monterray Jack and thus had a little more cheese than the recipe called for but I figured was justified with the 4 extra eggs. It was wonderful and my guest requested the recipe.
This is going to be one of my go-to breakfast recipes. I tried it for the first time this week, and there were no leftovers, much to my disappointment. I did as someone suggested and microwaved the asparagus (cut into pieces first), and also used pepper jack cheese for a kick. I never imagined asparagus would make such a great breakfast dish. When asparagus isn't in season, I think I'll try it with broccoli.
Delicious breakfast meal! Try it with Hollandaise sauce!
I increased the ham to 1 lb. and I covered the bottom of the dish with toasted and buttered muffins. Doubled the recipe and made 2 dishes and I served 16 for lunch with many positive comments. I covered with foil for half the baking time.
I made this recipe gluten free. I used a gluten-free French bread type of baguette and cut it into fairly thin slices. This gluten-free bread is buttery tasting and added to the . flavor. It was very light tasting. I found the whole recipe bland tasting but very good. So next time I would use sharp cheddar cheese for the cheese in the recipe.
