  • 2  teaspoons  Dijon-style mustard
  • 1  teaspoon  lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1  teaspoon  curry powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 6 - 8  ounces  thin asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 1  cup  fresh sugar snap pea pods, trimmed
  • 1  cup  red or yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 2  English muffins, split and halved
  • 4  ounces  fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced, or 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4  cup  small fresh basil leaves
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice bottom half of pepper into thin rings; seed and chop remaining pepper. Set aside.

2. In large bowl whisk together eggs, half-and-half, mustard, lemon pepper seasoning, curry powder and salt; set aside.

3. In 12-inch nonstick oven-going skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add asparagus spears; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bright green. Remove with tongs; set aside. Add chopped sweet pepper and pea pods; cook 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes. Cook until tomato skins begin to pop. Arrange muffin pieces on top of vegetables. Slowly pour egg mixture over all, making sure to saturate muffin pieces. Top with asparagus spears, pressing lightly with the back of spoon.

4. Transfer to oven. Bake, uncovered, 12 minutes. Top with pepper rings and cheese. Turn oven to broil. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until top is golden brown, cheese is melted, and eggs are set.

5. Loosen edges and carefully slide onto serving platter. Cut in wedges to serve. Top with fresh basil leaves. Makes 6 servings.
