Strata is like a savory bread pudding, and makes us think of brunch and holidays and family time. This Ham & Asparagus Strata, while perfect for brunch, is also perfect for dinner, since it's ready to bake much faster than the usual strata. There's no prep needed- the stuffing, cheese, asparagus and ham go into the baking dish, then the soup mixture is poured over the top. The magic happens during baking, when the ingredients meld into a rich and savory bake that looks and tastes amazing. Ham and Asparagus Strata will be a family favorite, for the holidays or anytime!
Heat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating, stir the stuffing, cheese, asparagus and ham in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish.
Beat the soup, milk, eggs and mustard in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk. Pour over the stuffing mixture. Stir and press the stuffing mixture into the milk mixture to coat (the stuffing mixture will soak up the liquid as it bakes).
Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Another family favorite .
I didn't have the right stuffing , so just picked a regular I make my turkey with every year and it turned out great . It was all gone , no left overs .
This recipe is so good!!! The whole family loved it.
Ham and Asparagus Strata
I couldn't find pepperidge farms dressing mix so I used stove top chicken dressing, it makes 6 cups, so I added 2/3 cup more milk to the recipe. I used cream of chicken soup along with a can of mushroom soup because the cream of asparagus was not available at my store. I also added about 1/2 cup of green onions and some salt & pepper. I put this in a 9x13 pan. My recipe took 80 minutes to cook until the top was a little brown. Turn out great, my family loved it! It would also make a good breakfast casserole, you could add italian sausage for a twist.
My wife and I really enjoyed this meal. We topped it off with a very mild white wine.
This recipe was very good and easy to make!
