Recipe by Outta Here

Similar to an asparagus quiche, with fresh fiddlehead fern heads. Buy these fresh in the spring at farmer's markets, or look for them frozen in specialty food stores. BEWARE: Do NOT pick your own unless you are sure of what you are picking. There are ferns that resemble the fiddlehead (ostrich) that are actually bad for you.
