Asparagus and Ham Brunch Bread

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins

From Foodland Ontario booklet. A savory flatbread loaded with asparagus, ham, onion and Parmesan cheese and easy to make using biscuit mix. Great for a casual brunch. Serve with a lightly dressed green salad or sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. I used cheddar cheese,adjusted the seasonings to taste, and Homemade Bisquick Mix #69051 for the biscuit mix.

Overall, good recipe. Very easy to prepare, and I had it on the table less than an hour from a dead start. The family gave it an average rating of a "4" (really liked it but didn't love it). The main sticking point with the kids seemed to be the asparagus, of which they are not fond. I, however, thought it was a good mix of the tastes and food groups.

This turned out perfectly! I had so much asparagus left over from the garden/I immediatly wanted to use it up~I also had leftover lunch ham, and had made the Recipe #69051 last week. I would also say, the aroma was glorious coming from my kitchen, and included a piece of this with the meals that went to my neighbors for their weekly meal. I will be keeping this on the Spring rotation of additional breads~so easy and moist! Thanks, foodtvfan~
