This egg dish was created at the spur of the moment when my son wanted quiche one morning. I used whatever ingredients I had on hand, and this was the delicious result.

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 1 cup cut fresh or frozen asparagus (2-inch pieces)
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 3 Eggland's Best Eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 drops hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake at 450° for about 8 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Remove from oven and discard foil. Set crust aside. Place asparagus in a small saucepan with enough water to cover; cook until crisp-tender. Drain thoroughly; toss with Swiss cheese, chicken, 1/4 cup pecans, onion and flour. Spoon into baked crust. Combine cream, eggs, mustard, salt and hot pepper sauce; pour over asparagus mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining pecans. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.
