10 bacon strips, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded swiss or cheddar cheese (I use cheddar)
1 Tbsp. gluten free flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 unbaked gluten free pie crust (store bought or homemade)
1/2 cup half-and half cream
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-inch long spears for garnish (if desired). Cut remaining asparagus into 1-inch pieces. In a saucepan, cook all the 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. If using the asparagus garnish, arrange in a pinwheel or spoke fashion on top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until quiche is set in the center. Let cool slightly, slice and serve.
