•1 pre-baked all-butter pie crust

•1 bunch asparagus (aka Hadley Grass!) tough ends discarded, then cut into 1" spears

•3 scallions, trimmed, cut into 1/2" spears

•4 Tbsp unsalted butter

•1 Tbsp olive oil

•2 large eggs

•2/3 cup heavy cream

•1 tsp kosher salt

•1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

•1/4 tsp nutmeg (freshly grated is best here)

•2 oz. shredded cheddar


1. In a skillet, melt the butter and oil. Add the asparagus and scallions and cook stirring occasionally until they begin to soften, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Fold in the asparagus-scallion mixture (including any remaining butter-oil), and then fold in 1/2 the grated cheddar.

3. Place your pre-baked pie crust on a baking sheet, and then scrape the egg- asparagus-cheese mixture into the pie crust. Scatter the remaining cheese on top and bake in a 375-degree oven until puffed and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

4. Let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temp.
