Crab & Asparagus Quiche Recipe
1 8 pate brisee or regular pie crust
1 cup crab meat, chopped
1 3/4 cup milk, scalded
3 eggs, beaten
10 asparagus spears, tips reserved
4 oz parmesan cheese
1 dash nutmeg and cayenne pepper
1 salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375. Place crab meat in bottom of pastry shell. Cut
bottom parts of asparagus spears into half-inch slices and scatter
over crab. Scatter parmesan over asparagus. Beat eggs and milk
together, and season to taste with nutmeg, cayenne and salt. Pour
over crab/asparagus mixture. Arrange reserved asparagus tips in a
spoke-like pattern on top. Bake in preheated oven until set (about 45
minutes to an hour). Let sit for about 15 minutes before serving.
Next time, I might substitute Swiss cheese for at least part of the
Parmesan (didn't have any handy, and at 1 ayem, wasn't gonna make a
run to Kroger to get any).

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Make low carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Store in an airtight jar or container.
