This is tasty, easy to make. Aaron loves it, Kennedy not so much.

The big difference between this recipe and the linked orignal is that I use non fat milk (because that’s what we drink) and it seems to always need an extra five minutes in the oven.

Ingredients:

  • vegetable cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup non fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 slices turkey bacon , cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Coat a 9 inch pie plate with vegetable cooking spray.
  3. In a saucepan, place asparagus into boiling water and cook for 4-6 minutes, or until tender but still firm. Drain well.
  4. Sprinkle crumbled bacon and asparagus into pie plate.
  5. Top with cheese.
  6. In a bowl, beat together, eggs, milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and garlic powder. Pour egg mixture on top of cheese.
  7. Bake, uncovered for 30 minutes or until golden and just set in the center. Makes 8 servings.
