    Default Alpine Asparagus Quiche

    We made this the other night and really liked it. We used cheddar cheese instead of swiss, though.

    1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
    1 pkg. (10 oz.) asparagus
    1/2 c. finely chopped onion
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    3 eggs, slightly beaten
    3/4 c. milk
    3/4 c. half and half
    1 tsp. salt
    Dash of pepper
    1 c. shredded Swiss cheese

    Bake pie shell at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Cook asparagus, drain. Combine milk, cream, onion, salt, nutmeg and pepper in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer 1 minute. Stir hot mix into eggs. Sprinkle 2/3 of cheese into pie shell. Arrange asparagus over cheese, trimming spears if necessary. Pour in egg mix. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until knife inserted 1 inch from center comes out clean. Serves 6.

    Mmmm...sounds good. I bet this would be good with Gruyere cheese, too.
