Asparagus and Egg Casserole

Updated on March 25, 2015

Quick & Easy Asparagus Dish

Have you ever been so rushed for time that you needed to make something really fast for dinner? I've been in that situation a number of times, and have had to come up with something that is not only quick and easy, but feeds a lot of people too.

This quick and easy asparagus and eggs casserole dish is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can be used as the main meal or served as a side dish.

What I like about it besides being easy, is that you can make a complete meal all in one baking dish. So clean-up is also a breeze.

Whether you are a veggie only person or not, this asparagus and egg casserole recipe is sure to become a favorite you'll be pleased to serve your family.

I said this was quick, so this is a" time saver" recipe. If you want it a little healthier use freshly cooked potatoes and asparagus, but don't overcook the potatoes or they will turn to mush. Washing the canned items does take out some of the salt, but not all of it.

This recipe is easy and allows me to do other things while it is cooking, and it comes out looking like you spent a lot of time on it.

Cook Time

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 50-55 minutes

Serves: 2-3

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 slices of low fat American cheese
  • 1/4 cup low fat shredded cheddar (optional)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 can of asparagus (10 1/2 oz.) cut spears. Drained/washed
  • 1 can of diced potatoes (15 oz) drain and wash
  • 3 veggie sausages cut into small pieces (I use Morning Star)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • coat the casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preparing the canned vegetables: drain, wash, re-drain. Be sure to press lightly on the asparagus with a fork or spoon to get out all the excess liquid. Do not add salt. There is plenty in the canned veggies; however, you can have a salt shaker on the table if people desire it.
  2. 1. Blend in a mixing bowl three large eggs, 2 tablespoons of melted butter and pepper.
  3. 2. Add potatoes, "sausage" and asparagus.
  4. 3. Pour 1/2 the mixture into a spray coated casserole dish.
  5. 4. Tear the slices of cheese into smaller pieces and scatter them ontop of the mixture.
  6. 5. Pour the remaining mixture over the cheese.
  7. 6. If desired sprinkle shredded cheddar over the top. Too much makes the casserole greasy.
  8. 7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes (depending on oven).
  9. Toothpick should come out clean.
  10. Variations: Use veggie dogs cut into 1/2 pieces. If you must use meat, some add chopped/cubed ham, meat sausage or chicken.
  11. Note: I do not use the shredded cheese myself. I prefer a cleaner taste.

      I'd say that your asparagus and cheese casserole sounds right up there with delicious and very satisfying with that list of ingredients as well as a quick and economical meal or side dish...how adaptable that it works for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Now, I found your asparagus soup quite interesting, what a calorie saver to savor without adding the cream to it.

      we have white asparagus here. white because they have not seen the sun. asparagus plants are buried deeply in soil and before they come out to see the sun, they have to be harvested. blessings for these delicious recipes. i will try them in springtime when asparagus are harvested.

      Out of all recipes shown I've only tried asaragus egg casserole....an I liked it! It was a bit strange, or should I say new taste for me, but later I got used of it. That soup recipe looks interesting so I might give it a try one day ;)

      Thanks for sharing this great recipes!

      Thanks for the asparagus recipes. Everything looks great! I'll probably try the casserole with either swiss or sharp cheddar cheese instead of American. Have you tried it with any other cheeses?

      Really nice lens. I pack asparagus for a living and I can say that I have never found it to be tastful. But I may just try your asparagus soup, maybe?

      @CatJGB: hard to believe that you couldn't get your crowns to grow. Asparagus is actually a type of weed and is very hard to get rid of.

      CatJGB 5 years ago

      Mmmm, I love asparagus! Prefer it fresh of course and just this summer I planted some that is actually growing. I have planted crowns before and they never come up but this time I planted an actual growing piece, and it's working! So far......

      Beautiful lens!
