"This is sooo good. The asparagus is a nice change. Great for that special Brunch. Plan ahead, needs to refrigerate 12-24 hours before baking."

"FANTASTIC! You should have more than 5 Stars. I took this casserole to work for one of our monthly breadfasts. I did have to make a dash of changes. They are mostly Vegetarians. (No ham or other meat.) I added a wee more fresh aspargagus. I had steamed my asparagus and didn't add them while doing step 3. (I didn't want them over-cooked) However, while doing step 3, I added 2 minced jalapeno peppers and 8 oz sliced mushrooms. (Seasoned with garlic powder, salt and black pepper) [no ham, no marjoram] I used thin long Italian bread (When sliced almost every little square had a bit of crust) I followed the instructions. My casserole took 50 min. I added the last cup of cheese. I topped it with some asapargus spears I had set aside. Also, I added some cherry tomatoes, that I had cut in half. (A dash of color) I popped into the oven for 6 min. and took it to work. It was perfect! I had to give out your recipe to many. Thank you for a "keeper". I've put the recipe in my "favorites". Can't wait to make it for the holidays. Thank you."
"I served this for Mother's Day Brunch and loved it! I love the combo of ham, asparagus, and swiss. Instead of steaming the asparagus I just sauted it with the onions and peppers until it was crisp-tender. I think it cut out a step without affecting the flavor. Delish! Thanks for posting!"
"WOW! I served this on Mother's day to a house full of people, and it was completely gone in a matter of minutes. I did attempt to make it a bit healthier by substituting the eggs for egg beaters. I also used garlic powder, and french bread instead of Italian. FABULOUS!!!"
"WOW, GREAT RECIPE! Made this for Sunday brunch for a group of 9 very discriminate gay men that know good food.... trust me on that. It was very easy to put together and what a time saver the morning of our gathering. I did take another reviewers idea and added a little fresh garlic. Also my pan was a little larger so I increased the quantities some and it took about an hour and 15 minutes to bake. Will definitely be making this one again and again."
"This was great! Took it to a church breakfast for our Sunday school class and came home with an empty dish and several requests for the recipe. For our own tastes, I added just a 1/2-teaspoon of garlic powder to the veggie mix, doubled the marjoram and also added 1/2-teaspoon of Italian sesaoning. A great recipe!"
"It was very good. I made it for Easter breakfast and my hubby really liked it. I have to admit that I do not like casseroles or stratas where the bread and egg are kinds spongy(like they should be). It is a consistency thing for me. LOL The taste was great and it went together very nicely. I had no marjoram so I just skipped it. Thanks for a keeper!"
"I made this casserole with the french bread...took it to an early tailgate party. It was gone in five minutes. Had many requests for the recipe. "
"Brought this dish to a "Thank You" breakfast. It received rave reviews and many requests for the recipe."
"This is a five-star recipe all the way! I cubed some good,crusty French bread, and used some really nice deli home-baked ham that "shredded" by hand. I thought 8c. of bread sounded like alot, but it was, of course, perfect. Will make this again and again - the ladies at my brunch all loved it and several asked for the recipe."
