Ingredients

  • For the crust:
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, diced
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 5 tbsp ice water
  • For the filling:
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus, washed and cut into 1 inch pieces (leave 6 asparagus whole)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 8oz Natural & Kosher Fine Herbs Goat Cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 tbsp whole milk or half and half
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups grated Sincerely Brigitte Parsley & Chive Cheese (about 3/4 of a 7oz log)

Instructions

  1. To prepare the crust, preheat oven to 350F
  2. Combine flour, salt and butter in the food processor. Pulse a few times until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing constantly until the mixture comes together to form a dough
  3. Roll the dough on a floured surface to form an approximately 12 inch round. Transfer to a 9 inch quiche mold with a removable bottom, making sure the dough comes evenly up the sides. Gently crimp the edges and poke it all over with a fork, to keep it from bubbling up in the oven
  4. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes
  5. In the meantime, saute the asparagus in a non stick skillet with one tablespoon of olive oil, 4-5 minutes over medium-high heat. Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool slightly
  6. To prepare the filling, place the softened goat cheese in a large bowl and mash it lightly with a fork. Whisk in milk or half and half, one tablespoon at a time, making sure it’s smooth and creamy after each addition
  7. Whisk in beaten eggs. Add grated cheese and cooked asparagus and mix well
  8. Remove crust from the oven, pour filling and arrange the uncut asparagus on top. Bake at 375F for 45-55 minutes or until egg is completely set.
