Step-By-Step

1Make your crust:

In food processor add flour, salt and rosemary. Pulse to blend.

Add butter, pulse about 8 times until small pieces remain visible. Add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition. Remain adding until dough comes together and can be gathered up and stays together.
2Make into a disc shape, Chill. while making filling.
3Cook bacon until crisp, drain. Reserve 2 tablespoons grease.
4To the grease in a medium skillet, add shallot slices. Cook over low - med heat. stir occasionally, but you want them to caramelize. After caramelized add the asparagus to the pan and saute until tender crisp....about 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.
5Mix filling:

Whisk eggs, add the rosemary, sour cream, cream, nutmeg, pepper. The bacon will add some saltiness, so I wait till serving to add if needed. Mix all well.
6Pre heat oven to 375 degree F.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. It's a very nice dough. So, shouldn't have any problems rolling it. Place in a 9 inch tart pan, as I used or can use a 9 inch pie plate. Trim edges.
7In the bottom, line with shallots, asparagus, bacon and cheese. ( I forgot to add the bacon ) so added to top...
8Pour the egg mixture over top.
9Bake for 40-45 minutes until center of the quiche is set and the top is turning golden brown. Let rest before slicing. Serve warm.

Delicious!
