Asparagus Torta Cooking Recipe

From the Delta Queen Asparagus twíst-tíe wrapper

It’s a simple little recipe, with a lot of eggs and parmesan like a frittata. But it also calls for a lot of breadcrumbs, giving it a texture similar to southern cornbread dressing or spoon bread. It’s tasty! Dare I say it’s almost like a savory brownie? That might be going a little far.

Prep tíme: 25 míntues | Cook tíme: 45 mínutes | Total tíme: 1 hour 10 mínutes

Yíeld: 9 squares
