.

Ingredients:  Asparagus, eggs, ricotta cheese, green onions, bacon (I used beef bacon)

Embellishments: 1 medium onion sauteed and added to bottom of the baking dish.

Prep: Recipe called for boiling the asparagus, but I went ahead and roasted them. Prep time was probably about 10 minutes (cooking the bacon, roasting asparagus, sauteeing the onion).

Cook time: 35 minutes

Comments:  I loved this dish — It tasted great, easy prep, and quick for an after work meal.  However, I have mentioned before that the family really doesn’t enjoy the “eggs for dinner” concept, so although they said it tasted ok, they really didn’t enjoy it.

.

I’m overriding the family on this one and giving it a thumbs up.  It was quite tasty, quick, and easy.

Bacon and Egg Casserole

I thought this was pretty good, however my family is just not thrilled with the quiche for dinner concept yet.  Looking like they better get used to it since emeals seems to have one egg based dinner dish each week!  The side dish was just spinach salad, which just doesn’t cut it for my better half from a “filling up” perspective.

I had a butternut squash leftover from my husband’s summer garden,  so peeled, diced, and roasted with some garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil for an additional side.

Substitutions and alterations….You know I always do this !  We generally don’t eat bacon, so I substituted beef, in place of the pork bacon.  The recipe also called for 1/4 cup of onion, and I used the entire thing since I hate stinky leftover onion smell in the fridge.

Prep:  Nice and Easy !  Thumbs up from me….Thumbs down from the Family….
