Ingredients
  

  • 1 pie crust*
  • 2-3 ears of corn or 2 cups kernels
  • 1 bunch 20-30 spears asparagus
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 cups diced dinner ham
  • 6 slices bacon cooked
  • 6 oz Manchego cheese grated
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk or half and half cream
  • 2 T mustard
  • pepper

Instructions
 

  • Place onion in skillet and saute in butter and olive oil over medium low heat for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, microwave corn in husk for 4 minutes per ear. Cut corn at fat base and remove husks and silk. Cut kernels from cob.
  • Wrap washed and trimmed asparagus in clean towel and microwave for 2 minutes. Cut into 1 inch pieces.
  • Add ham to skillet and cook for several minutes to brown and render fat. Add corn and asparagus and cook for 1-2 more minutes
  • Place crust into deep pie dish or 8 x 8″ square baking dish. Brush bottom with mustard. Fill with vegetable ham mixture and mix in cheese. Top with bacon pieces.
  • Beat eggs and add milk. Season with pepper. Salt isn’t really necessary due to the saltiness of the cheese, ham and bacon. Pour milk mixture over all.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes until custard has set and top is golden. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 4 large, 6 medium or 8 small servings.
  • Quiche can be made ahead and refrigerated until baking. Freeze leftovers for another meal.

Notes

* eliminate the crust if preferred and add 1 more egg to the milk custard
