Prep Time: 20 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 30-35 min
Servings: 6
Skills: Intermediate


  1. 10 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed and risen
    1 pound fresh asparagus
    1 cup grated Swiss cheese, divided
    1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    3/4 cup half & half
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Spray board or counter top with non-stick cooking spray. Combine rolls together to form a ball and roll into a 14-15 inch circle. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a sprayed 12-inch deep dish pizza pan.

Cut 3-4 inches from top of each asparagus spear. Set tops aside. Cut stem ends into 1-inch pieces. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the 1-inch asparagus pieces; cover and boil 2-3 minutes. Drain and immediately place asparagus in ice water. Drain and pat dry. Arrange the blanched asparagus over crust. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese and parsley.

In a bowl combine eggs, half & half, salt, pepper and nutmeg; pour into crust. Arrange asparagus tops over egg mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 375°F 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting.
