Quiche has long been a favourite main course – loved for its ease, versatility and great taste. Cheddar and Broccoli Quiche from 1994 gets a delightful twist with asparagus and the zest of Canadian Parmesan; serve it with your favourite salad.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Place pie crust on a baking sheet. Brush inside with mustard. Pat asparagus dry and arrange evenly over bottom of crust; sprinkle with cheese.
In a bowl, whisk eggs until slightly foamy; whisk in milk, pepper, hot pepper sauce and dill until blended. Pour over asparagus and cheese.
Bake for about 40 min or until filling is puffed and set and a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let rest for 10 min before serving.
You can use fresh asparagus and blanch for 2 min in a large pot of boiling salted water, just until bright green, then drain and rinse under cold water, or purchase frozen asparagus spears and just let them thaw. Choose medium-thick spears for the best results.
Add 2 oz (60 g) smoked salmon, chopped, or 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped cooked shrimp or crab with the asparagus.
