BACON QUICHE

1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell        

1/2 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed

2 green onions, thinly sliced    

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour           

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon basil

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 cup half-and-half

Bake crust at 425 degrees for 6 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

Steam asparagus spears about 6 minutes until tender, yet firm. Drain and cool. Set aside 3 spears for garnish; cut the remaining asparagus into half-inch pieces.

Pat dry with paper towel to reduce moisture. Combine cut asparagus pieces and onion; add flour & toss.

Pour into crust; add bacon; sprinkle with cheese.

Whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt, basil and cayenne. Pour over asparagus mixture.

Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Split the reserved asparagus spears lengthwise and arrange, cut side down, in a wheel pattern on top of filling. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes.

Cut into six servings.
