Cheesy Egg, Asparagus and Bacon Strata

Strata or stratta is a family of layered casserole dishes in American cuisine. The most common modern variant is a brunch dish, similar to a quiche or frittata, made from a mixture which mainly consists of bread, eggs and cheese. (wikipedia)

3 large farm fresh eggs, slightly beaten
5-6 stalks fresh asparagus, blanched
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2-3 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.

Spay or lightly oil a small oven-safe casserole dish. Lay blanched asparagus in a row on the bottom. Pour beaten egg over top; sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. 

Sprinkle cheese over top of egg, and lastly sprinkle on crumbled bacon.

Bake 20-30 minutes or until eggs are set.

Remove, slice and serve immediately.
