How to Make Asparagus Quiche

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with the rack in the lowest position.
  • 2In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. Add bacon and cook until starting to brown. Add leek, asparagus, garlic, and mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until asparagus is crisp-tender, about 6-8 minutes. Let cool.
  • 3In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of nutmeg.
  • 4Place pie crust on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with cheese; top with asparagus mixture. Pour egg mixture on top.
  • 5Bake until center of quiche is just set, 50 to 60 minutes, rotating sheet after about 30 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
  • 6To store, let cool, then refrigerate, up to 1 day. Reheat at 350 until warm in center, about 30 minutes. It does warm up very well.
  • 7To save time I used a pre-made (Maria Calendar) frozen crust and it worked just fine.
