  1. 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.

  2. Scatter parmesan over asparagus. Beat eggs and milk together, and season to taste with nutmeg, cayenne and salt. Pour over crab/asparagus mixture.

  3. 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).
