About the Recipe

Essentially you can pair asparagus with whatever you like in a quiche. I’ve added sauteed mushrooms, sauteed leeks, as well as ham. Totally your call. As for the custard, heavy cream will make a very rich quiche, but if you’re looking to cut back on the fat content, you can substitute half and half, or even whole milk or a combination of all three if you happen to have them all. Lastly, I tend to be short on time so I purchase pre-made pie crusts to save time, but feel free to make your own. Now, let’s get started!

Ingredients

1 pie crust.  Pre bake according to the package/ recipe instructions. 

1 bunch of asparagus washed and cut in ½” pieces (leaving the tips intact)

2/3 cup of heavy cream

3 whole large eggs

2 large egg yolks

1 cup of freshly grated gruyere cheese (feel free to make cheese substitutions here)

1 TBSP butter

1TBSP of olive oil

½ tsp of salt

Dash of freshly grated nutmeg if you have it or ⅛ of a tsp of ground nutmeg

Preparation

Step 1:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees


Step 2:

In a large saute pan, melt the butter  over medium heat and add the olive oil.  When the butter is melted, add the asparagus and saute for 2-3 minutes then set aside.


Step 3:

In a medium bowl whisk the eggs and the yolks together.  Gently brush a light coat of the egg mixture over the prebaked pie shell and pop in the oven for 5 minutes, and remove.


Step 4:

Whisk the cream into the egg mixture and add ½ tsp of salt and the nutmeg.


Step 5:

Place the pie crust on top of a sheet pan lined with foil (for stability).


Step 6:

Fill the pie crust with the sauteed asparagus, sprinkle the cheese on top and then gently pour the egg custard over the vegetable and cheese.


Step 7:

 ​Bake on the middle rack for approximately 35 minutes (oven temps vary, so keep an eye on it.  You do not want the center to be jiggly).


Step 8:

Let the quiche rest 5-7 minutes before cutting and eating it.

One of our favorite Quiche recipes. Followed the recipe-no substitutions needed! Heats beautifully. When Asparagus are not in season I would try Broccoli. Delish.
