How to Cook Asparagus

In a medium-sized pot, boil enough water to completely cover asparagus. Wash the asparagus. Do not break off the ends---when asparagus is fresh, the ends are tender and can be eaten. Place the asparagus in the boiling water and cook until a fork goes through easily (about two to three minutes). It is very easy to over-cook asparagus, so watch it carefully throughout this stage. When asparagus is cooked, remove it from the water and place on a serving tray. Serve hot with butter, salt, and Helen's Homemade Buttermilk Dressing!


Asparagus Swiss Quiche

INGREDIENTS

10 bacon strips, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell
3 eggs
1/2 cup half-and-half cream

DIRECTIONS

In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In the drippings, saute onion until browned; drain.

Cut eight asparagus spears into 4-in.-long spears for garnish. Cut remaining asparagus into 1-in. pieces. In a saucepan, cook all of the asparagus in a small amount of boiling water until crisp-tender; drain.

In a bowl, toss the bacon, onion, asparagus pieces, cheese, flour, salt and pepper. Pour into pastry shell. In a bowl, beat eggs and cream; pour over bacon mixture. Top with asparagus spears. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and crust is golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
