  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Quiche was good. I did not have onion so I substituted garlic. I also used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. I would use less asparagus next time.

Made this to take for breakfast for my pinochle group, we all loved it. Only problem, I should have made more.

This recipe turns out every time, just as written. It also keeps well for awhile in the fridge and leftovers can be microwaved, and I like that you can use the basic egg, flour, 1/2 and 1/2, sa...

This turns out fabulous and looks pretty. I have used chicken in place of the bacon and that works, too.

This was a excellent quiche! I did splurge and use Swiss Gruyere cheese which was really yummy. When I do it again, I will saute the onions with the bacon and calm their flavor a bit. I also ...

This quiche is great! I used mozzarella instead of swiss for a less potent flavor and I didn't use any bacon. Use plenty of asparagus, and let it cool before mixing with the cheese - it will mel...

Add more asparagus! Chop some rather finely and mix into filling otherwise not everyone gets some. Also I sautéed the asparagus with butter and added chopped onions which were delicious.
