Recipe Notes

  • You could use broccoli, green peas or green beans instead of asparagus.
  • Don't like spinach? Use arugula, kale or your favorite greens.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the asparagus in boiling, salted water until crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 1 minute. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in the drained asparagus. Set the mixture aside to cool slightly. 
  3. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cheese and asparagus mixture. 
  4. Pour the mixture into a buttered 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 20 to 30 minutes or until eggs are set. Cool a few minutes before cutting into squares.
