Ingredients
  • 10 bacon strips, diced

  • 1 lb. fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream

  • Methods/steps
    1. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tbsp. drippings. In the drippings, saute onion until browned; drain.
    2. Cut eight asparagus spears into 4-in.-long spears for garnish. Cut remaining asparagus into 1-in. pieces. In a saucepan, cook all of the asparagus in a small amount of boiling water until crisp-tender; drain.
    3. In a bowl, toss the bacon, onion, asparagus pieces, cheese, flour, salt and pepper. Pour into pastry shell. In a bowl, beat eggs and cream; pour over bacon mixture. Top with asparagus spears. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and crust is golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
