Recipe of the Moment: Asparagus Flan

This recipe is based on Mirielle's recipe of the same name. Oddly enough, I didn't change much from the original.

16 asparagus stalks
2 slices of bacon
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat over to 350.

Cut off the ends of the asparagus. Boil in water for about 5 minutes. Drain and let cool. Chop each stalk into inch-long pieces.

Cook the bacon in a nonstick frying pan until crisp. Drain.

Combine eggs, milk, and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into a pan (I used a bread pan since I couldn't find a 9-inch round). Sprinkle in the asparagus and bacon. Bake for 15-20 minutes, til the flan is set but not dried out. Serve immediately.

Note: I had to bake it for almost 45 minutes, so be sure to check it. Pull it out of the oven when it's still a little bit jiggly.
