Quiche is a great way to serve something elegant that costs very little and is easy to prepare. I experiment with fillings. This is one experiment that worked.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I was a little worried the Italian seasoning was going to be overpowering. I'm so glad I was wrong. This is one yummy quiche! It's simple to throw together and will be a great Holiday breakfast or brunch. So good!

Ingredients

1/2
pepperoni stick sliced and cut up to make small diced pieces
1/2 box
frozen asparagus or about 1 cup of leftover cooked asparagus
3/4 c
mozarella shredded fine
1/2 c
Parmesan shredded finely
1 tsp
Italian spices
1 1/2 c
half and half
4 large
eggs
1
9-inch pie crust

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2Prepare a crust for a 9 inch pie plate or use a store bought crust. Do not prebake.
3Defrost asparagus and use paper towels to remove excess moisture if frozen.
4Sprinkle the pepperoni and asparagus pieces over the bottom of the pie crust.
5Spread cheeses evenly over the asparagus and pepperoni.
6Beat the 4 eggs with a whisk until a bit foamy. Stir in half and half.
7Pour egg mixture over filling.
8Be sure that no cheese is sticking out too high.
9Place in oven on middle rack, turn temp down to 350 and bake 30-45 minutes until set. The knife should come out clean if stuck in the middle.
