Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Butter the inside edges of a 2-quart casserole dish.
  3. Stir flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, sugar, black pepper, fresh thyme, and milk together in a large bowl until smooth.
  4. Whisk eggs and lemon zest into milk mixture to form a smooth batter.
  5. Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
  6. Cook and stir asparagus and 1/4 teaspoon salt in melted butter until the asparagus turns dark green and is coated with butter, 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Layer asparagus in the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Pour batter evenly over the top.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until the pie has puffed up and is browned around the edges, 40 to 45 minutes.

This turned out great. I followed the measurements exactly, but used a 1.5 qt. casserole dish so I baked it 55-60 minutes. It was delicious. My hubby loved it and I loved how easy it was to make. I will definitely make it again. It's a keeper!

I too followed the recipe but added some leftover ham for a one dish meal. I did leave out the thyme. It's not a family favorite. Substituted with a bit of rosemary which I added to the asparagus while sauteing. There are so many ways you can make this dish your own while adding different ingredients. I think next time I just might try it has a Broccoli pie. What a great way to put veggies in the chidren.

This was quick and easy to make and tasted great! I added sliced mushrooms and we really liked it that way. The thyme gives it great flavor but if you're not a fan of thyme, skip it or add basil instead.
