"I make this for breakfast/brunch the day after Easter. It's a great way to use up leftover dinner rolls and cooked vegetables. Everything bakes in one pan so assembling this dish is easy. You can substitute spinach for the asparagus and add mozzarella cheese if you wish." — Bobbie Pearsall

This one was good, the best part about it you can use this recipe as a base and improvise switching the veggies, meats or cheeses with whatever you have left over in your fridge. A very satisfying meal.
I modified this considerably after a first attempt that was just too bland, with flavors that didn't compliment each other. To my second batch, I added sauteed onions, mushrooms and garlic. I also changed the cheese to a mixture of provolone, gruyere and swiss. I decreased the milk by 1 cup and added a can of cream of celery soup instead, along with 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. This turned out fantastic and got rave reviews at my weekly gal's poker game.
I ran across this dish looking for a way to use up leftover dinner rolls. It was pretty good, but my hubby said it's not better than tuna casserole. Instead of the ham, I substituted prosciutto which added a richer flavor to the dish. I used a can of cream of celery soup and condensed milk in place of the milk as suggested above. I felt these changes made this a more appropriate dish for supper. I'll try it with the ham and leave out the asparagus another time for a brunch.
My family did not enjoy this at all and we love asparagus.
This was excellent! I prepared it the night before! I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for the recipe!
I made this as written with the exception of the cheese - we don't care for processed cheese so I used a Cheddar / Jack Cheese blend. You don't have to pre-cook the asparagus - that saves a little time. This is a great recipe to use up left overs - perfect after Easter. I have made recipes like this in individual oven safe ramekins. Each can be customized to suit different tastes. It is a fun kitchen project when we do a sleep over with the kids.
