  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the shredded potato and onion in the hot oil until the potatoes begin to brown, about 5 minutes.. Season with salt and pepper. Add the asparagus and ham and continue cooking until the asparagus is tender, another 5 to 7 minutes; transfer to the prepared baking dish. Whisk the eggs and milk together in a small bowl; pour evenly over the dish. Scatter the mozzarella and white Cheddar cheeses over the top of the potato mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle, 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with the basil to serve.

Our family enjoyed this recipe. I had to change a couple of things (I know, I know) because I did not have all of the ingredients on hand. I used bacon instead of ham. YUM! I also used monterey jack cheese but I would try sharp cheddar cheese next time. I didn't have any basil so I chopped fresh rosemary and added it to the egg mix. It was so delicious and added a fresh herb flavor that made the dish, IMO.

This was a lot of work and not worth the trouble. I followed the recipe exactly and it was very bland. The potato gets lost somewhere - volume probably would be better using those frozen shredded hash browns if you can eat them. I may use the ingredients again, with more onion and no potato and just add beaten eggs to the mix in the skillet to cook, like an omelette. A lot less work, dishes, mess and quicker.

I'm trying my hardest at lowering my carb intake as well as getting in as many healthy ingredients/vegetables I can. Instead of potatoes, I subbed chopped cauliflower. I used half whole eggs/half egg whites, turkey ham and 2% sharp cheddar. Filling breakfast. My family noticed that their was cauliflower in it, but noone said anything. (Mom's just know.) I'd make this again. I liked it a lot.

This is an awesome recipe. I made it as is except I used sharp cheddar cheese because that it what I had on hand. I will be making this again.

This is really, really good. I made it the first time as written and it was delicious. The second time, I cubed the potatoes and let them get pretty well browned, increased the onion to 1/2 cup, and I used only gruyere cheese because that was all I had. OMG! - to die for! I love to serve this with sliced tomatoes.

An excellent recipe. Based on preference I changed a few things. I cut the stalk of asparagus into 1 inch pieces and the tips in 2 inch pieces. I cooked them separately in boiling water stalks -3 minutes, then add tips + 2 more minutes. 3/4 cup onion. For six eggs- 1/4 cup is not enough. My husband said "one of my best dishes"

This is a fabulous recipe. My husband loved it. For those health conscious folks - I used Egg Beaters and spicy turkey sausage and it came out absolutely perfect.. I sprinkled dried basil on top as I didn't have fresh on hand. We will definitely make this again.

This was delicious. We omitted the ham.
