    8 servings

  • Ingredients

  • 6 bacon strips, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard drippings, reserving 1 tablespoon in pan.
  • Add mushrooms and shallot to drippings; cook and stir over medium-high heat until tender, 6-8 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, place steamer basket over 1 in. of water. Place asparagus in basket. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; steam, covered, until crisp-tender, 3-5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, biscuit mix, milk, cream, cheeses and seasonings until blended. Stir in bacon and mushroom mixture. Pour into a greased 13×9-in. baking dish; arrange asparagus over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
