As I mentioned earlier, we spent Mother's Day week-end with Munchomom and family, with Machoman and The Husband working in the kitchen to give all of us a treat. One of the dishes we were served was this:
|White and green asparagus!
With our own homegrown asparagus, I have baked another enjoyable dish. It comes from a Weight Watchers paper from way back in 1993 or 1994.
2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons butter
24 unsalted saltines, crushed
1 1/2 cups evaporated skimmed milk
4 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 cups sliced asparagus
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In medium saucepan, melt butter; add saltine crumbs, stirring to combine. Using the back of a fork, press saltine mixture evenly over bottom and up the sides of a 10" pie pan. Bake 5 minutes; set aside. Leave oven on.
- In medium bowl, combine milk, eggs, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, nutmeg and pepper; stir in asparagus.
- Transfer asparagus mixture to prepared crust; bake 40 minutes, until set. Serve warm
- Four servings.
I didn't use the saltine crust when I baked this recently. I just sprayed my pie plate with non-stick spray.
I must tell you that I am awaiting a part for the computer that I usually use for posting on the blog, so I am at another computer. While I entered the pictures I took of the Asparagus Quiche, now I am having a bit of difficulty finding them on the computer!:-) I know they are somewhere here, and I will find them and post them another day.:-)
We had a lovely week-end and enjoyed a visit from our Country Girl and New Husband! I will share the dessert I served them with you on the next post.
Thank you to all who are following. I truly enjoy your comments.
