Asparagus strata

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can Asparagus, pieces or spears
4 eaches American cheese slices
8 eaches Bread slices, thin
4 eaches Eggs
4 cups Milk
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Dry mustard
½ teaspoon Pepper

Place 4 slices of bread, with crusts removed, into greased 8" X 8" X 2" pan. Put slice of cheese on each piece of bread, then place asparagus evenly on top of cheese. Top each with another slice of bread. Mix egg, milk, salt, pepper, and mustard and pour over bread.

Let refrigerate overnight. Sprinkle top with additional grated cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until custard is set (knife comes out clean when inserted). As a variation, use ham slices instead of asparagus and top with corn flakes and 4T melted butter.
