Green Asparagus and Boursin Breakfast Quiche

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. 

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
