I found this recipe in the Taste of Home magazine. It has become a requested favorite for family and friends. Everyone loves it! You can make this all the night before. I just keep it all separate and then put it together in the morning for breakfast.

This was very good! I thuoght this looked so lovely on the plate and could easily be served to brunch guests. A nice use of leftover Easter eggs & holiday ham too. I used white asparagus in this. Next time I would add a few additional seasonings & herbs to punch up the flavor of the sauce a bit, as it was very basic - but still very good.
