15-20 asparagus spears thin is best
5 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup milk (any type or combination will work. I use a mixture of skim milk and half and half.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 cup Swiss cheese shredded
1/2 cup ham (optional) diced
Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut woody ends off of the asparagus spears.
Cut asparagus spears in half. Set top halves of spears aside and cut remaining halves in 1 inch segments.
Combine remaining ingredients, except for long pieces of asparagus spears and pie crust, if using, in a bowl.
Pour mixture into a 9 inch pan coated with cooking spray (or into the pie crust, if using.)
Using a fork, distribute ham, cheese and small asparagus pieces in pan.
Place long asparagus spears in a sunburst design. (See picture)
Bake quiche uncovered for 60-70 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. The top should be lightly browned and the quiche will continue to set after removed from the oven.
Allow quiche to sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting.
