Mel's Christmas Morning Casserole

I have tweaked this over the years, and honestly this is more like a quiche without a crust, than it is a casserole.
The original recipie came from Gooseberry Patch's Christmas book no 5,
This you make Christmas Eve, and then in the AM pop it in the oven, while everyone is opening presents.
It's also great when you have company overnighters, or a group in for breakfast.
Feel free to add sausage instead, of bacon, increase the cheddar, or use pepper jack instead add mushrooms, and my fav asparagus tips.
A nice pairing would be a fresh fruit salad.
