If you’re looking for a Christmas morning casserole, a leftover ham casserole or brunch item this asparagus casserole recipe is perfect. We love breakfast casseroles. I can throw them together and enjoy a hearty meal using items in my fridge that need to be cooked, and I love using leftovers from the night before too. This and others added to our long list of quick and easy casseroles for you to enjoy. (originally published 3/19, affiliate links present)

Easy Asparagus Casserole

Who doesn’t love asparagus in the air fryer or grilled on the barbecue??!! Even if they weren’t in season you can swap it out for something else like broccoli. This breakfast egg bake is very versatile like that.

Can only find frozen?? NO problem. We show you how to cook frozen asparagus beforehand so you can make this year round. We live in a small town so I get that produce isn’t available all the time but it is our favorite vegetable so I had to figure out how to make this happen even in the cooler months like February.

Can you bake asparagus in casserole?

You betcha! Using leftover ham from my crockpot ham recipe I made the other night I thought I’d throw it into an egg and cheese casserole and see how it would turn out, it was so yummy. It’s just one of our many leftover ham recipes on the site because….well I hate to waste food ever.

I know Thanksgiving is all about turkey but if you have family from out of town or are a bunch who likes to start early in the morning and spend all day together you will need something hearty to get y’all thru the day until the big meal is ready to eat.

It is best to make things that can be whipped up quick, enjoyed all day long and reheat well. Next to our spinach quiche this is one of our go to dishes. You can make it gluten free if need be, but also add all the things into it if there are no restrictions in your home. Load it up with bacon bits with some French’s fried onions on top etc…

We don’t want anyone to get hangry now so let me show you a quick rundown on how this is made.

You can see what is needed here above. Like I said, if you want to make it vegetarian then you would obviously skip all the meat and go with it as is. Meat lovers can go the opposite direction. I tend to use whatever I have on hand so after Christmas and Easter it would be ham of course. Adds lots of flavor and a bit of sodium it needs.

If I do add meat I’d skip the salt and pepper because it’s already incorporated with the protein. You know what I am getting at I am sure….. Here are the basic ingredients needed and a few tweaks we have made along the way that we’ve enjoyed. Let us know if you use anything else that makes it amazing as well.

Asparagus Egg Bake

  1. Egg
  2. Asparagus – could opt for broccoli florets if necessary
  3. Butter
  4. Garlic
  5. Milk
  6. Onion
  7. Mushroom
  8. Cheese
  9. Ham 
  10. A handful of fried onions or crushed ritz crackers is great on the top too if you want a little crunch, kinda’ like green bean casserole – ish.

I’m a big texture gal so I like a bit of crispiness on top if I have some on hand.

  • Sprinkle garlic and onions on top of butter. Place pan into a cooled oven and preheat oven to 350. (Remove pan when preheating is finished)
  • In a large bowl whisk together your eggs and then add milk and stir together well.

  • Bake for 40 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and return to oven for an additional 5 minutes
