I am serving brunch this weekend. I have friends coming over, and I am excited to make this Asparagus Quiche! It has been one of my favourite and go-to brunch recipes for years! I also love this on Mother’s Day, Easter, Holidays, or even when I am feeling lazy. It is also the perfect recipe to use those leftover asparagus. If you want another impressive addition to your breakfast or brunch, make sure not to skip this simple asparagus quiche recipe!
4 large eggs
1 tbsp butter
1 prepared pie shell (unbaked)
1/4 c. finely chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp dried
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 lb asparagus, cooked and chopped
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar
1 c. milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
HOW TO MAKE ASPARAGUS QUICHE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.
Step 2: In a pie pan, place the pie crust and brush the inside of the shell with Dijon mustard.
Step 3: In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the chopped onions once the butter has melted and cooked over medium-low heat or until the onions have softened, but not browned. Next, add the dill along with the chopped asparagus. Stir well.
Step 4: Into the pie shell, scoop the asparagus mix, and sprinkle with cheddar.
Step 5: In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and cayenne. Pour this over the asparagus and cheese.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the centre of the quiche is just set but still jiggles when moved slightly.
Step 7: Once done, remove the quiche from the oven and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes.
Step 8: Slice and serve. Enjoy!
