      We loved this - although I did make a number of changes! First, we have runny-egg haters here so I whisked the eggs and cream together and added a cup of cheddar cheese. I also added a pastry base, to make the dish more quiche-like. The flavours were fabulous - I used asparagus bought from a market garden and free-range eggs.Served with a salad it made an extremely tasty meal.Thanks ncmysteryshopper - I hope you don't mind the changes I made :)
