Bacon, Asparagus, and Shallot Tart

This really isn't a real tart in my book because it has no crust but I did bake it in my 9-inch French tart pan, so it's a tart tonight. You don't need a special pan for this--a large pie plate would work just fine. This is a savory dish somewhat like a crustless quiche. I served it for dinner with potatoes and salad.

8 oz uncured turkey bacon, diced
1 shallot, minced
1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed and chopped
8 large eggs
1/4 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 t smoked paprika
1/2 avocado sliced

Pre heat oven 350
In medium skillet cook bacon until lightly browned-2-3 minutes. Add shallots and asparagus and cook another 2-3 minutes. Turn heat off pan.

In large bowl whisk the 8 eggs and then slowly add the meat/asparagus mixture, salt and pepper and combine well.

Grease baking or tart pan and then pour egg mixture in.

Bake 25-35 minutes. Let cool on wire rack 15 minutes before cutting. Before serving dust with smoked paprika and garnish with some sliced avocado.
