    Serves: 6 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 potatoes, grated
    • ½ medium onion, chopped
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    • 500g asparagus, trimmed and cut into 5cm pieces
    • 1 cup diced ham (about 150g)

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 22x33cm baking dish.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat; cook and stir the grated 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 Cheddar cheese 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.  -  14 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  08 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
