Ingredients

1 9 inch (23 cm) deep-dish pie crust, baked
2 tsp (10 mL) Dijon mustard
12 asparagus spears, blanched or thawed if frozen, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
1/3 (75 mL) grated Canadian Parmesan cheese or 
3/4 (175 mL) shredded Canadian Cheddar cheese
3 eggs
1 cup (250 mL) milk
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
Dash hot pepper sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh dill or 
tarragon

Preparation

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.

Tips

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.
