Take-out Tuesday, A-B-C-Tart, Asparagus, Bacon and Corn

There is nothing easier for a quick meal than a throw together tart.  Use what’s in your fridge, add some eggs and cheese, and you’ll have a well balanced and mouth watering meal that is so much better than take-out

Refrigerated pie crust is a great staple

Even though it comes in a round shape, it’s easy enough to coax into a square with a little gentle stretching a rolling

The sides only come up 1/2 inch or so because I am making a tart rather than a deep dish pie or quiche.  If the filling goes over the crust edge it won’t matter, it will bake just fine

Sprinkle the dough with sesame seeds for added flavor and texture

Fresh corn, asparagus, cooked bacon and cheese~ABC easy

Microwave corn in the husk, 4 minutes per ear, then cut husk at wide base of ear.  Hold corn vertically  by the other end of the husk and squeeze cob out

I like to cut corn off the cob by using a kitchen towel.  It catches and contains the runaway kernels

Rinse asparagus and wrap in a kitchen towel and microwave for 2 minutes.  Remove and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 refrigerated pie crust dough

2 ears of corn

20-30 asparagus spears

6 pieces bacon, cooked

3 oz Manchego cheese, chopped or grated

4 large eggs

salt, pepper

3 T sesame seeds, optional

Place crust in shallow casserole or tart pan.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Microwave corn in husks or wrapped in a towel for 4 minutes per ear.  If corn is still in the husk, cut off bottom of corn at wide base and hold the other end of corn up vertically and gently shake to ease cooked ear out of the husk

Rinse asparagus and wrap in towel.  Microwave for 2 minutes on high.  Remove and cut into 1 inch pieces.  Place corn and asparagus on crust and top with bacon and cheeses.

Beat eggs and add milk.  Season well with salt and pepper.  Pour over ingredients in the pan.  Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes until set and golden.  Serves 6.

Serve it with fruit for brunch, with salad for lunch, and with soup for dinner~or all by itself it makes a lovely meal anytime!  It reheats and freezes beautifully too
