My Favorite Breakfast Casserole

Last week I was in Utah for my brother's wedding. It was so nice to be with my family for such a special occasion.

I flew out by myself and stayed with my mom and dad. It was strange to not have my kids or husband with me, but it was fun to be just a daughter and sister for a few days.

One of the nicest things was enjoying my mom's wonderful cooking. I miss it! We had this awesome breakfast casserole the first night I was there. I quickly took advantage of this very photogenic and scrumptious opportunity.

I highly recommend this casserole for a special brunch or holiday breakfast. It is WONDERFUL!

Note: It needs to be prepared the night before it is to be served.

1/4 cup butter
1/2 lb. fresh asparagus - 1" pieces
1 small/medium red bell pepper (chopped)
