Asparagus, Bacon and Cheddar Quiche


Asparagus Bacon Quiche 

 “I have played around with quiches because I don’t like them too airy or too stiff. I want them  soft, but firm enough to make a nice cut.    This comes out perfectly every time, any way.   

Typically asparagus is paired with swiss cheese in quiches.  I like cheddar only because it is my personal preference, but this is a great base quiche recipe for any cheese, vegetable, or meat variation you want.  

A broccoli, sausage, cheddar combo is also very good with this recipe.      Enjoy!”

Servings:   8    Bake Time:  35-40 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

5 strips bacon
1 pound fresh asparagus
4 eggs
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup half and half cream
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Cook bacon, drain grease and pat the bacon strips dry with paper towels.
3. Cut bacon strips into very small pieces. Set aside.
4. Trim the asparagus, and steam until  just tender.
5. Set aside eight 4-inch long asparagus spears for garnish.
6. Cut the remaining asparagus spears into small pieces. Set aside.
7. In a large bowl, beat eggs, bacon pieces, onion, cheese, flour, salt, pepper, and half and half cream.
8. Gently mix in the asparagus spears.
9. Pour into the unbaked pie shell.
10. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until firm.
