This is a delicious, simple, and totally flexible recipe for a breakfast, brunch, dinner, and midnight snack.  If you don’t like asparagus, throw in some broccoli!  If you hate broccoli, swap out with spinach, sauteed mushrooms or a couple leeks.

1+1/2 cup chopped asparagus in 1/2” pieces
3 shallots
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cups grated Jarlsberg cheese
2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
4 eggs
1 cup milk (or milk alternative)
sea salt, pepper
dash nutmeg

    This turned out great! Though I only in put a bit of cheese because I was substituting Pecorino for Jarlsberg. Even my toddler loved it!
