|Crustless Quiche with Gruyere and Asparagus|
So I decided to name the title of my post today after that song. You may ask, what does a Mariachi band song have to do with quiche?? Well, nothing at all really. It's just that this crustless asparagus quiche with gruyere cheese that I made last night for dinner, is my latest and greatest baby. So, "hey baby quiche, que pasa?!" At least I am giggling on the inside.
As I was making this one little lonely serving of beautifullness, I felt stingy not making more for sharing. But not enough to actually make more than my one little baby ramekin of this eggy cheesy yumminess. So the least that I could do is share some pictures with you, and a quick recipe...
For one serving:
1 egg whole egg
2 egg whites
1/2 shallot, minced
1-2 garlic cloves, mined
3-4 Asparagus, small to medium diced
about 1/2 cup of gruyere cheese, shredded
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425
Coat ramekin with butter
Preheat ramekin in oven until hot
Season asparagus with oil, salt and pepper
Whip together whole egg and egg whites
Combine eggs, shallot, garlic, cheese, salt and pepper to taste
Place diced asparagus into heated ramekin
Pour egg mixture over asparagus in heated ramekin
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cooked thru and lightly browned on top
I also roasted some baby potatoes, and some additional asparagus for garnish.
Your quiche might rise, like a lot, by trying to jump out of the piping hot ramekin. Don't worry, he won't get very far. Mine puffed up even more than this....
Cheers! Au Revoir! Bienvenidos! (Whatever that means)
