    Bev's Note:

    I found this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine and being an asparagus lover myself, decided to share it with my friends ; ) This makes 6 main dish servings. Would make a nice brunch, or light supper served with a salad.

      I knew I would like this because I love asparagus mixed with scrambled eggs. This brings it to a whole new level. Absolutely delicious and I wouldn't change a thing. Well worth the effort. Thanks for another super recipe, Bev.

      This was fabulous! I used the recipe more as a guideline, because I a) was too lazy to make a crust, and b) didn't have all the ingredients. I used fresh basil, plus fresh dill, and a prepared crust. I used ham instead of bacon, and green onions instead of white. But what I ended up with was amazing! I had some leftover and made mini crustless quiche in a muffin pan, which will be a yummy breakfast in the morning.

      Very good. Next time I will not add oil to the asparagus as the top was a little oily. I made in a 8 1/2 inch tart tin and made crustless muffin-sized quiches with the leftover batter. To make the mini quiches, I chopped up the asparagus. Great!!
