Asparagus Bacon Quiche....low carb way!

I figured out if I copy the photo also I can paste it on here. So I post them on my facebook first then I come on here and post the recipe and the picture.

Package of ham slices
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 tablespoon sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Spray a cupcake pan with Pam. Lay ham slice in pan.
Cook asparagus in a small amount of water until crisp-tender, about 3-4 minutes; drain well. Arrange the bacon and asparagus in the  ham crust.
In a bowl, beat eggs; add cream, 1/2 cup cheese, onions, sugar, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour over asparagus. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 6-8 servings.

    Hi there April!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
