There's nothing I like better than getting all my housework done and "cooking up a storm" in the kitchen. I was raised in a farming community that had many asparagus growers. So I've always made sure that there's an ample supply of asparagus in my freezer! My husband is a grain farmer, and we have four grown children and 13 grandchildren.

How to Make Asparagus Quiche Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. Bake crust at 425° for 6-7 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. Cook the asparagus spears in a small amount of water until tender. Drain and cool. Set aside three spears for garnish; cut the remaining asparagus into 1/2-in. pieces. Combine the asparagus pieces and onions; add flour and toss. Pour into crust; sprinkle with cheese. Whisk together eggs, cream, salt, basil and cayenne; pour over asparagus mixture.
  3. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes. Split the reserved asparagus spears lengthwise and arrange, cut side down, in a wheel pattern on top of filling. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
  4. Yield: 6 servings.
