Ingredients

  • 14 asparagus stalks
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon shredded gruyere cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups whole cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • 1 pre-made pie crust unbaked

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350° (180 celsius)
  • TO CLEAN THE ASPARAGUS
  • If you buy really thick asparagus then you might want to peel the outside woody part with a potato peeler. Snap off the tough base of each spear, this is usually around the bottom third
  • of the spear, where the stem starts to turn tender. Keep only the tender part. Chop into 1/4 inch (3/4 centimeter) sizes. Boil or steam for approximately 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a 10 inch (26 centimeter) pie plate, place the pre made (or homemade) pie pastry, brush with melted butter, and spread the steamed asparagus on top.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, milk and salt, stir in grated cheese.
  • Pour mixture over the asparagus.
  • Bake for 15 minutes then turn oven down to 325° (160° celsius) and bake approximately 30 minutes more. Quiche will be cooked when a knife inserted comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
