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.

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! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Italian Christmas Quiche

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prepare a crust for a 9-inch pie plate or use a store-bought crust. Do not prebake.
  3. Defrost asparagus and use paper towels to remove excess moisture (if frozen).
  4. Sprinkle the pepperoni and asparagus pieces over the bottom of the pie crust.
  5. Spread cheeses evenly over the asparagus and pepperoni.
  6. Beat the 4 eggs with a whisk until a bit foamy. Stir in half and half.
  7. Pour egg mixture over filling.
  8. Be sure that no cheese is sticking out too high.
  9. Place 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.
