Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped asparagus
  • 8 English muffins cubed
  • 2 cups ham chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 packages Hollandaise sauce mix
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup half and half or milk

Instructions

  1. If using fresh asparagus, bring a pot of water to a boil, add the asparagus and bring back to a boil. Then immediately drain. If using frozen asparagus, simply thaw and chop. 

  2. In a 13x9 pan, layer English muffins, ham, asparagus, and cheese. Repeat.

  3. In a medium sized bowl,  whisk together the eggs, one package of the Hollandaise sauce mix, the half and half, salt and pepper. Pour over casserole. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate preferably overnight, but at least 8 hours. 

  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the pan in the oven still covered with the foil. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the casserole is set and the edges are golden brown, removing the foil for the last 10 minutes of baking. 

  5. Prepare the Hollandaise sauce as directed on the package and drizzle over the strata before serving.
