Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]


  1. Line a 20cm (8") loose based flan tin with the pastry and place onto a baking tray. Blanch the asparagus in boiling water for 1 minute, drain and cool.
  2. Place the asparagus and torn parma ham into the pastry case. Mix the Philadelphia well together with the eggs and milk (the Philadelphia will remain quite lumpy), season with pepper and pour over.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven, Gas 6, 200 °C for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and set.

Serving suggestions

Serve hot or cold, with salad leaves.


A little crushed garlic added to the mixture is a nice touch.
