There's nothing I like better than getting all my housework done and "cooking up a storm" in the kitchen. I was raised in a farming community that had many asparagus growers. So I've always made sure that there's an ample supply of asparagus in my freezer! My husband is a grain farmer, and we have four grown children and 13 grandchildren.

TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 20 min. + cooling Bake: 30 min. + standing

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pie shell (9 inches)
  • 1/2 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

Bake crust at 425° for 6-7 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
Cook the asparagus spears in a small amount of water until tender. Drain and cool. Set aside three spears for garnish; cut the remaining asparagus into 1/2-in. pieces. Combine the asparagus pieces and onions; add flour and toss. Pour into crust; sprinkle with cheese. Whisk together eggs, cream, salt, basil and cayenne; pour over asparagus mixture.
Bake at 325° for 25 minutes. Split the reserved asparagus spears lengthwise and arrange, cut side down, in a wheel pattern on top of filling. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.

"My oh my, this is just so good!!! My changes; I slightly pricked pie crust with fork and precooked recommended time at 400 degrees. Used 3 green onions instead of 2 and cut asparagus first then cooked until barely tender. Had to bake longer in my oven, roughly 45 min. until top started turning golden brown. We just loved the flavors. Husband, who is not a fan of quiche, still remarked the next day how great it was. Try this one, especially with all the fresh asparagus in the spring."
