This is one of my favorite recipes using asparagus and has become a family favorite. The first time I made this for Mike and his son, Brian, Mike was sure that Brian wouldn't eat it because "Brian doesn't like quiche". Well Brian not only liked it, but consumed so much of it that Mike was starting to guard the last piece that he had staked out as his own.
Asparagus and Bacon Quiche
9" pre-baked pie crust
3/4 cup raw asparagus cut into 1" pieces
1/2 cup chopped onion (I used a leek this time)
1/2 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Colby)
1/2 cup cream or half and half
1/2 tsp grated spice blend (it's my own mix in a grater jar; Spice Hunters Garlic Herb Sensation is close)
Place the asparagus, onion, bacon and cheese in the bottom of the pie crust ...
Lightly beat the eggs, cream and spice blend in a bowl and pour over the ingredients in the pie crust ...
Place on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes ...
