I served this egg bake at a wedding shower and wasn't sure how the guest would like the chilies. I substituted 2 cups chopped asparagus and 2 cups ham. Salt and pepper to taste. I was leery of how it was going to set up without any bread. It was absolutely wonderful! I will serve this entree for any type of celebration. I made it the night before and it baked up nicely.
I halved this as I didn't think DH would eat it because of the chiles. Boy is he missing out on good eats!! I made it in a 8x8 baking dish and did have to cook it about 40 minutes. Absolutely delicious and I loved the texture. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2009
