My sister gave me this recipe. It actually calls for broccoli but I forgot to pick some up when I was at the store and didn’t feel like running back out to get some. Fortunately, I had asparagus in the fridge!
The fun part about quiche is you can substitute all kinds of good stuff for the ham and asparagus. Like broccoli and onions, or Swiss cheese instead of the cheddar cheese that I used. Just as long as you keep the egg to cream ratio the same, you are good to go.
What is your favorite quiche to make or eat?
I have to say this is probably my favorite combination because I love smoked shoulder and asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. Put them together with eggs and cream and I’m in heaven.
Do you have to make your own pie crust?
No, absolutely not. You can if you want to but I used store bought, frozen, 9 inch pie crusts.
And truthfully, I have only made one pie crust in my life.
My grandmother made the best, flakiest crust in the world. Okay, I know. I haven’t been all over the world bursting into people’s houses and asking to sample their pie crusts. But, if you asked me to choose one thing my grandmother used to make that I’d like to eat again, I would pick her apple pie because of her delicious flaky crust!
Christopher used to make really good pie crust but he hasn’t in a while. I’ll have to ask him to make some soon, to see if he still has the touch!
