|My Asparagus Quiche|
I have lived with all men for many years.
Most of the time living with men is just fine.
I live with men and I cook for men... most of the time. Until I cook for me.
Then I make quiche...
|Asparagus Quiche Ingredients|
- 1 single crust pie dough, your own or store bought
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 bunch asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
- Cayenne pepper, pinch
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup half and half
- freshly ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped chives
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese, or your favorite cheese
Preheat your oven to 425degrees F. Roll the pie dough out to fit a large, deep-dish pie pan. Place the dough in the pan, crimping the edges. Prick the dough with a fork and bake on the center rack of the oven for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the heat to cool and turn the oven temperature down to 325 degrees F.
While the pie shell is baking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, asparagus, cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper and garlic. Cook until the onions are tender and the mixture is yummy. Remove to a bowl to cool.
