Ingredients

  • 1 pie shell for my homemade pie shell, I will link the recipe in the recipe notes.
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1/2 red bell pepper cut in long slices
  • 1 tsp of each salt and pepper - divided 1/2 tsp of each for sauteing veggies and 1/2 tsp of each for seasoning eggs.
  • 1/2 tsp fresh or dried thyme
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese plus a couple of tablespoons to sprinkle on top
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil or refined coconut oil

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375.
  • In a deep-dish pie dish put your homemade or pre-made pie crust in the bottom (i use a 2 1/2 inch deep pie dish)
  • Wash then cut about 2 1/2 inches off of the ends of the asparagus (because that part of the stem is tough)
  • In a frying pan over medium heat, season veggies with salt and pepper and thyme and cook asparagus, and red bell pepper until lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes.
  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk eggs, milk, and 1/2 tsp salt and pepper until mixed really well.
  • In the bottom of the pie crust add 1 cup cheddar cheese.
  • Pour over whisked eggs.
  • Arrange sauteed asparagus and red pepper on top of the egg.
  • Sprinkle of couple of tablespoons of cheese on top if desired.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until brown on top. If you are not using a deep-dish pie plate it may not take as long!
