Recipe by Barb G.
This makes a very good brunch dish. It needs to be refrigerated overnight before baking. The recipe comes from a TV station.

Thank you for a delicious, make-ahead recipe. I will definitely be serving this for company. I roasted my asparagus. Next time, I'll probably add a little red onion, (but I'll add a little red onion to about anything!) Thanks again!
