Ham and Asparagus Strata


Breakfast casseroles often serve an army, but not this just-for-two recipe. While we call for ham, feel free to try this with leftover chicken or turkey instead if you prefer.

Total Time:
2 hrs 45 mins


  • 1 English muffin, split and torn or cut into bite-size pieces

  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped cooked ham

  • ½ cup cooked cut asparagus or broccoli florets

  • 2 slices process Swiss cheese (3/4 ounce each), torn

  • 2 tablespoon dairy sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard or prepared mustard

  • teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)

  • Dash black pepper

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 slightly beaten egg


  1. Place half of the English muffin pieces in 2 lightly greased 10-ounce custard cups. Sprinkle with ham. Top with asparagus and cheese. Add the remaining English muffin pieces.

  2. In a small bowl combine the sour cream, onion, mustard, caraway seeds (if desired), and black pepper. Gradually stir in milk and beaten egg. Pour evenly over the layers in the custard cups. Lightly press with the back of a spoon to thoroughly moisten English muffin pieces. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.

  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 325° oven for 25 to 28 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 160°.
