Impossibly Easy Ham and Asparagus Pie

Enjoy this quiche-like “pie” fresh out of the oven or warmed in the microwave the next day. It’s delicious made with Ontario asparagus in the spring or mushrooms throughout the rest of the year.

2 cups (500 mL) diced ham
2 cups (500 mL) shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese
2/3 cup (150 mL) chopped green onion
2 cups (500 mL) diced asparagus (about 12 spears)
3 cups (750 mL) milk
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) baking mix (e.g. Bisquick)
7 eggs, lightly whisked

Lightly grease or spray a 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) baking dish. Layer ham, cheese, green onion and asparagus in dish.

Whisk milk into baking mix a little at a time so mixture doesn’t get lumpy. Whisk in eggs just until blended. Pour mixture carefully over ingredients in baking dish.

Bake in a preheated 400°F (200°C) oven until puffed and golden brown, and a knife inserted in centre comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
