Ingredients

½ pound bacon
cooked crisp, well drained
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
dijon-style
1 pie shell (9 inch)
9-inch
1 pound asparagus
fresh or 10 oz frozen package
3 large eggs
1 cup swiss cheese
cut into 1/4-inch cubes
*
1 cup light cream (half&half)
or undiluted evaporated milk
1 teaspoon tarragon leaves
dried
1 teaspoon savory

Directions

Slice into wedges and serve.

Cut the bacon into pieces and cook until crisp, drain well on paper towelling. Chop the asparagus into one inch pieces, reserving the tips for decoration. Cook or steam until just tender-crisp. Remove from heat and drain well.

Bake shell at 375℉ (190℃) for 15 minutes or until firm, but not completely browned. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes on wire rack.

Use a store-bought crust or homemade crust.

Brush mustard evenly over bottom and sides of pastry shell. Sprinkle baked crust with the bacon and arrange cooked, drained asparagus over. Sprinkle with half the Swiss cheese.

Bake in the oven about 25 to 35 minutes or until quiche is set in center (a knife inserted in the center comes out clean) but it's still a bit soft in the center. Rest for about 5 minutes to give it time to set. Serve warm.

Creamy, tasty and refreshing.

This can also be made using a quiche or french tart pan instead of a pie plate if you are making your own shell.
