How to Make This Asparagus Mushroom Swiss Egg Bake Recipe
To make this vegetarian egg bake recipe, 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. Finally, 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.
