Tis the season when our chickens or those of our nearby friends with eggs start having an abundance… their “girls” are coming out of their winter doldrums and are busy laying lots more eggs. Just as spring asparagus is poking up from the earth. These two marry well together and can be paired in many ways. If you are looking for a tasty and crowd-pleasing dish for your Easter brunch table, you will love this casserole.
Cheesey. Fluffy. And so flavorful with the fresh asparagus! You can even use other veggies instead… add bacon, ham or sausage too. Super quick and easy to throw together, this is a good recipe to let your aspiring chefs make.
Do enjoy, and come on over to my fun facebook page and share your recipes. Happy Easter!
This light and velvety casserole will be a favorite with the cheese lovers in your crowd for Easter brunch, or anytime.

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces and sauté in butter 3 to 4 minutes until tender.
Combine asparagus with all the other ingredients and stir to combine. Pour into prepared baking dish. Bake about 30 minutes until it sets in center and starts to brown on top.
