Asparagus and Sausage Strata : An Easy Egg and Asparagus Recipe! #spon

This asparagus recipe is sponsored by Eggland’s Best eggs but all opinions expressed here are mine alone.

One of the things I love most about eggs is their versatility. There is no reason you cannot have eggs for breakfast, lunch, or dinner depending on how you prepare them. There is also no reason you can’t have vegetables for breakfast! The combination of eggs, sausage and sun dried tomatoes  in this asparagus recipe works well, no matter what time of day you decide to serve it. Aside from being very versatile, eggs are also extremely nutritious. Eggland’s Best organic or cage free eggs paired with the tender spring asparagus that is just starting to make it’s way into stores is a great combination for a delicious and earth friendly meal. I used organic milk and sausage from my local farmer as well and I think the end results came out delicious!

Did you know that all eggs are not created equal? When compared to other brands of eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain more vitamin E, Omega-3’s, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and lutein than other brands of eggs. They also contain less saturated fat than other brands, as well. I am always thrilled to find organic and cage free varieties of eggs but they also have several other varieties as well. Not sure what you want to create with those tasty eggs? The Eggland’s Best website has tons of great recipes like the Breakfast Burrito and the Sunny Side Breakfast Pizza that are hearty and nutritious. I decided that with spring on the way I wanted to try out a new asparagus recipe. I love asparagus and although my children aren’t thrilled with it, they will eat it if I get creative with preparation. Bacon wrapped asparagus is also a big hit in my house!

Prep Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground sausage

  7. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper until combined. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and sausage/veggies
  8. Sprinkle the top with cheddar cheese
  9. You can either place this in the fridge overnight or bake immediately.
  10. Bake, covered, at 350° for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake 5-10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
