Mother’s Day is right around the corner! If you are in charge of making brunch (Dads, I’m talking to you too!), an egg bake is a great option. They are kind of like an omelette, only easier to make; barely anything to do but put the dish in the oven
Egg bakes can also be prepared the night before. If you are hosting brunch, save yourself a little time in the morning.
I used Phil’s Fresh Eggs to make this asparagus mushroom swiss egg bake. I love having a company like Phil’s Fresh Eggs in my backyard; they’re located in Forreston, IL which is about 2 hours away from Chicago.
They have been cage-free for nearly 60 years and feed their chickens rich, high-quality natural ingredients that they grow. My mom has been using their eggs for years and we both love that these eggs are laid in nests. You will be seeing a lot more of Phil’s Fresh Eggs here on my blog.
To make this egg bake, saute your asparagus and mushrooms to soften the vegetables and then place them into a casserole dish. Sprinkle swiss cheese on top evenly – you want to make sure each slice has gooey cheese.
Then whisk your eggs together and mix in some parsley, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture on top of the cheese and place the casserole dish in the oven.
Let it bake and take it out of the oven when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. There may be some liquid from the vegetables so take a good peek – you want the eggs to be fully cooked but not overcooked.
When done, your asparagus mushroom swiss egg bake will be a little fluffy and may even look like it expanded too much. Don’t worry – as it cools, it will deflate and be just the right size for serving.
Doesn’t that sound easy to make?
I can see dads having the kids help with this dish and maybe even pour the egg portion. Then mom can just enjoy her slice instead of having to do the work. And moms that are making breakfast can rest easy knowing that they can enjoy more of their day thanks to this yummy dish.
It’s going to become a family favorite for sure!
