My Asparagus Quiche

I live with men.
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...

  
Donna's Asparagus Quiche

Serves 6-8
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

Directions
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.
Making the Asparagus Filling

In a large bowl. mix the chives, mustard, eggs, half and half, nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper until well combined.  Spread the asparagus mixture in the pie shell.

  1. I find that, if there's nothing else on offer, those men will eat quiche when they're hungry enough! Asparagus quiche is one of my all-time favorites, too.
