HAM AND ASPARAGUS QUICHE
Adapted from Simply Recipes
1 pie dough for 9" pan (I used this recipe for pate brisée)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small white onion, finely sliced
1 bunch asparagus, roughly chopped
1 cup ham (cut up deli slices or diced baked ham)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup Swiss cheese, grated or cut up slices)
Roll out the pie dough and arrange in a buttered 9" pie pan. Freeze it for a half hour. Preheat the oven to 350.
In a skillet, fry up the onion in olive oil over medium-low heat until translucent, then add in the asparagus and cook for another 5 minutes. Finally, turn down the heat to low add in the ham. Let that cook together slowly, stirring occasionally until ready to fill the quiche.
Take the pie dough out, stab it all over with a fork and bake it at 350 for 15 minutes. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
Lightly whisk the milk, heavy cream, eggs and nutmeg together. Lay half of the cheese on the pie dough, fill in with the asparagus/onion/ham mixture, then cover with the egg mixture. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake it at 375 for another 30 minutes or until set.
