1 recipe for single-crust pie crust
1-1/3 cups of asparagus chopped into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
6 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
Pre-heat oven to 450 F. Roll pastry to a 13-inch circle; ease into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate; fold under extra pastry. Flute edge. (Or fit pastry into a 9-inch pie plate and flute edge high.) Line the pastry in pie plate with a double thickness of foil. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 4 to 5 minutes or until the pastry is set and dry. Reduce oven temperature to 375 F. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, cook asparagus in a small amount of boiling water for about 5 minutes or until just crisp-tender. Drain thoroughly. Arrange asparagus in bottom of pastry shell; sprinkle with cheese. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs. Blend in sour cream. Then, stir in milk, onion, salt, and pepper. Pour over asparagus and cheese in pastry shell. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Remove from oven; let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
