Every nest needs a loving mama & papa…
Now the nest is perched above our entrysymbolizing the love nurtured here.
Our Improv Cooking Challenge for April is how to get my youngest to eat eggs! (Actually, the challenge could have been how to get the family to eat asparagus; but they love it grilled or oven-roasted in olive oil…) But, adding bacon to any dish ensures everyone will partake.
Blend dry ingredients, then stir in the liquids. Mix until dough forms a ball, then line quiche dish.
For the filling I decided I would supplement the asparagus/bacon/egg flavor(s) with a healthy dose of green onion:
Chop the vegetables & bacon into smaller pieces. Put remaining ingredients, except for cheese, into blender. Place vegetable mixture into crust & top with cheese. Pour in the cream/egg mix. Bake @350° for 45 minutes, or until done.
While the crust was pre-baking (@400° for 10 minutes) I lightly sautéed the bacon & veggies.After the crust came out of the oven, in went that mixture.I let it cool slightly, then topped with the cheese.Next, I pulsed the ingredients in the blender until they were yellowy-creamy…(Since the filling was so plenteous, I made a second, wheat-flour crust for the boys.) …then poured the mix over the veggies & all in the crust.The feathery asparagus tips were then arranged on top in a
pattern quite artistic manner.
Here are the asparagus & egg dishes my friends made:
