Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Blanche* fresh asparagus approximately 3 minutes. (For frozen asparagus, prepare according to package directions, drain well.)

Sprinkle cheese in bottom of pie shell covering dough. Arrange asparagus over cheese.

Add eggs to mixing bowl and beat slightly. Add enough milk to evaporated milk to make 2 cups. Combine with eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg mixing well. Pour over asparagus in pie shell.

*Blanching is a cooking process where the food, usually a vegetable or fruit, is plunged into boiling water, removed after a very brief time and immediately plunged into ice water or placed under cold running water. The ice water halts the cooking process. Food is blanched to soften food, partially cook food or to remove a strong flavor.

“I just made this for the first time today--fantastic!! I used low-fat Kraft cheddar shreds instead of regular. The mix of bacon, asparagus, and cheese was amazing AND filling. My husband loved it, and it will be made again!”
