Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus and shallot and cook until tender, 4 to 6 minutes; let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Fold in the baguette, Gruyère, ham, and the asparagus mixture.
  3. Transfer the egg mixture to four 10-ounce ramekins, cover with foil, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Bake on a rimmed baking sheet until set, 30 to 35 minutes. (Alternatively, transfer the egg mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish, cover with foil, refrigerate for 30 minutes, and bake until set, 35 to 40 minutes.) Uncover and cook until golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
