- Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
- Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover and bring the water to a boil. Add the asparagus, cover, and steam until bright green but still crunchy, about 5 minutes. Remove asparagus and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, dry mustard, salt, and pepper until smooth and well combined.
- Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Layer the bread slices into the bottom of the dish, cutting and fitting extra slices as needed to fill spaces. Sprinkle 1 cup of Cheddar cheese over the bread, followed by the diced onion. Arrange asparagus spears and red bell pepper in a layer over the onion. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the red bell pepper; top with another layer of bread slices, cutting and filling in spaces as before. Pour the egg-milk mixture evenly over the casserole, and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bake the casserole for 50 minutes; sprinkle 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole, return to the oven, and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and a knife inserted into the center of the casserole comes out clean, 10 to 15 more minutes.
- Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

The three major food groups ~ bacon, asparagus, cheese ~ all baked together resulting in one delicious brunch recipe. Instead of steaming the asparagus, I simply cut into bite-sized pieces and ...
Really easy and good! I added more spices such as hot pepper flakes and parsley.
This was good and very simple to make. I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 Pyrex dish which worked very well. I had an abundance of leftover Easter ham, so I used that in place of the bacon. It'...
I served it for Easter brunch. The taste and texture were great, but it wasn't as visually pleasing as I would like it to be, and it was a hard to serve because the asparagus spears made it hard...
Very tasty! The only thing I changed was I left out the red pepper. Didn't really like the sound of it in there, and I'm glad I didn't add it. I brought it to a dinner party, and everyone really...
My family gobbled this up Christmas morning. A hard group to please all around; not one negative comment and barely a piece left for me!
Wonderful. Served for guests and they all thought it was delicious.
While mine is definitely a custom version, I think that since I primarily stuck with the original recipe, that I can safely rate the original. Changes: halved the recipe; did not steam aspara...
