This ham and asparagus quiche recipe is delicious, easy to make and perfect for brunch! How about making it for your next party!
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!
Mix and Match
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! Why? 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. Absolute heaven!!
Do you have to make your own pie crust to make this quiche?
No, absolutely not. You can if you want to but I used store bought, frozen, 9 inch pie crusts.
Do you like making pie crust? 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!
On to the Ham and Asparagus Quiche Recipe
I preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and place some foil on a large jellyroll pan.
We have 6 eggs, some shredded cheddar cheese, leftover smoked shoulder and chopped asparagus!
I add the cheese, ham and asparagus and mix with my rubber spatula until they are just combined.
I pull out the frozen pie crusts, place them on the foil lined jelly roll pan and divide the ham and asparagus quiche batter equally between the crusts.
Time to place the ham and asparagus quiche in the oven. I bake them for 15 minutes.
Lower the Temperature
Once the timer dings, I lower the oven’s temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and set the timer for 25 minutes.
You will know it’s done when you insert a butter knife in the ham and asparagus quiche and it comes out clean.
I let the two quiches cool for 15 minutes before I cut into them.
