Recipe for family meals :

Asparagus Crab Quiche

This recipe comes from Karen ( Ilyce is her alias ) who is in a recipe club with between twenty and thirty members, the oldest of whom is eighty-six and the youngest is thirteen, who collect recipes and love to cook.

Karen told me that she is "thirty-four years old, single and loves to cook, among other things. I've been cooking and collecting recipes since I was in my teens and have a very big collection. I collect from magazines, friends, newspapers, brochures, advertising material, and product recipes, the net, recipe groups and a list of other places. If I've taken the recipes from the web or from a magazines, there should be a source but sometimes, over the years, it wasn't collected".


3/4 lb Fresh asparagus, cut into 2" pieces
1 Unbaked pastry shell (9")
6 oz Can crabmeat, drained and flaked
1 c Shredded Swiss cheese
1 tb Flour
3 Eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c Light cream
1/2 ts Salt
3 dr Hot pepper sauce
2 tb Grated Parmesan cheese
8 Fresh asparagus spears for garnish

  • Place asparagus pieces in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Cook until crisp / tender. Drain well.
