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


Put corn and asparagus into tart


Top with bacon and cheese


Pour beaten eggs and milk over ingredients in the dish


Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes until set, puffed and golden
