Oh yes, it's time once again for Secret Recipe Club. This month I got Laura of A Healthy Jalapeno as my assignment. Laura is a fellow army wife and she has a boatload of amazing recipes on her blog. I actually made two of her recipes.
The Slimmed Down Turkey & Spinach Meatloaf and this Spring Asparagus & Gouda Quiche - both were so good and everyone in the family loved them, but with the first, I got the worst pictures known to mankind! This quiche's pictures are passable, so I decided to share it. I've been on a huge asparagus kick lately and I had a ton of gouda in my fridge - thanks to Gouda's new biggest fan, my husband.
What you need:
- 1/2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 1/2 shallots, minced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 bunch asparagus, chopped
- 1 cup gouda, shredded
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup half-and-half
- Pinch of nutmeg
- Salt and pepper
- Pie crust
- Melt butter in a skillet and cook shallots for 1 to 2 minutes. Add garlic and asparagus and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add asparagus and cheese to pie crust, smooth as evenly as possible.
- Beat eggs with half-and-half, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Pour over asparagus and cheese.
- Bake at 350* for 55 to 60 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
Recipe from A Healthy Jalapeno
I love quiche!! This looks fantastic.ReplyDelete
Quiche is probably my favorite food group! This looks perfect--I will try it soon.ReplyDelete
I agree, meatloaf is hard to photo. I did a post once on a yummy meatloaf and I actually got the best photo before cooking! Meat is difficult.
This is a perfect recipe for spring and one that would go nicely on an Easter brunch or dinner table. Love the addition of the gouda cheese. YUM!!!ReplyDelete
Happy #src reveal day to you!
