Serves 4



  • 1 shortcrust pastry dough
  • 1 bunch green asparagus
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 fl oz milk
  • 5 fl oz heavy cream
  • 2 pinches of nutmeg
  • Salt & pepper



Preheat the oven to 180°C (355°F)

Remove the spikes along the stems of the asparagus, then cut off a bit less than 1 inch off the bottom.

Cook the asparagus in the asparagus cooker for 8 minutes, then cool in iced water.

Cut the asparagus stalks into half-inch slices and reserve the heads (about 2 inches).

Spread the pastry dough in the frying pan, then arrange the cooked asparagus and slices of bacon in a Chiffonade.

Pour the mixture from the bowl on top and bake for 40 minutes.
