Asparagus Swiss Quiche

If you assume you don't like quiche, you may want to think again after you try this Asparagus Swiss Quiche! This melt-in-your-mouth gem made my husband a true believer!

Asparagus Swiss Quiche

Quiche 10 bacon strips (cooked), diced
1/2 cups chopped onion
1 lb. asparagus
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2/ teaspoon pepper
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inch)
3 eggs
1/2 cup half-n-half cream

Cook bacon until crips; remove. Saute onions in dripings. Cut 8 asparagus into 4-inch spears for garnish. Cut remaining asparagus into 1 inch pieces. Boil in small amount of water until crisp-tender. Drain. In a bowl, toss everything but the eggs and cream. Pour into shell. Beat eggs and cream. Pour over bacon mixture. Top with asparagus spears. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

The last time I made this (a few minutes ago!), I tried pre-cooked bacon that can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, and it worked out great. To give the onions a bit of the bacon flavor, I diced two slices of the pre-cooked bacon and sauteed it with the onions. Also, if you use a deep-dish glass pie pan, you may need to add a bit more eggs and cream, depending on your taste.
