Ham and Asparagus Brunch Bake


An asparagus and ham-layered casserole with seasoned baking mix makes a nice brunch casserole. I think this could be easily made into an appetizer.

1 9x13-inch casserole


  • 3 cups biscuit baking mix (such as Bisquick®)

  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed

  • 1 cup cubed fully-cooked Black Forest ham

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  3. Combine baking mix, tarragon, dry mustard, and black pepper in a bowl.

  4. Whisk eggs and milk together in a separate bowl; pour the egg mixture into the baking mix and seasonings, and whisk until smooth.

  5. Pour half the batter into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

  6. Arrange half the asparagus spears over the batter.

  7. Top asparagus spears with ham and onion; sprinkle on 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese.

  8. Pour the remaining batter over the Parmesan cheese, and arrange the remaining asparagus spears on top. Sprinkle casserole with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.
