Asparagus Quiche Recipe
This simple asparagus quiche is loaded up with eggs, asparagus, and cheese. It's terrific for a brunch spread or weeknight meal.
- 1 pound fresh asparagus trimmed and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1 pie crust refrigerated or homemade
- 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
Preheat the oven to 375.
Add the asparagus to a large skillet with a few tablespoons of water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until the asparagus is bright green and crisp tender. Drain the water and move the asparagus to a plate to cool slightly.
Press the pie crust into a 9 inch pie dish or quiche dish, and trim the edges. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and half and half. Add the flour and water to a small bowl and mix until combined, dissolving any lumps. Add the flour mixture, salt, and pepper to the eggs, and mix to combine.
Spread half of the Swiss cheese evenly in the bottom of the pie crust, then top with the asparagus and crumbled bacon. Pour the egg mixture over the asparagus. Sprinkle the remaining Swiss cheese on top. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until the top of the quiche is lightly golden and only jiggles slightly when shaken gently. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
