This past Monday, as I came down into my kitchen for breakfast, I suddenly realized that there was nothing for breakfast except bread and croissants ( What a pity;-). And of course those items were nothing I cared to eat. So knowing how important breakfast is, I set up to prepare me a “tartine” of whole wheat bread and peanut butter. And I did prepare it, but looking at it really did not inspire me. So I left for work with an empty stomach ( yes, i know…). So guess what I did when I arrived home that evening, i made sure to prepare something for my breakfast. Quiches are the best things in the world. You can just about add anything in it. So since I had lots of green asparagus and cheese is always a great addition since it adds flavors, I looked for something that would “marry” well with the asparagus…. And i found Boursin;-)
Ingredients for 12 cupcakes size quiches or 6 larger one: 6 eggs, 2 cup of milk ( or skim milk, or even heavy cream), 30 asparagus, 1 boursin cheese ( I used parsley and garlic, but shallots would work well as well.), 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp of pepper.
Trim the end of the asparagus by breaking them. Then cut the asparagus in 1/2 inch segments. Place the asparagus in the round mold, cover the mold with the silpat and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. Divide the asparagus equally in the tray that you will be using. In a large bowl, break the eggs, add all the other ingredients and stir to mix well. Empty the content equally in each opening of the tray and cook for 15 minutes.
