Asparagus Quiche.

You totally already knew this was coming right?

I’m on a little bit of quiche kick lately. National egg day is on June 3rd… and I’m simply getting a head start.

This has absolutely noooothing to do with the fact that I have been pining over the darn things day and night. I’m simply being practical.

Right.

I could come up with a lengthy intro to this post or tell you a story about Pau’s crazy cat and how she ate all the lasagna again like she’s freaking Garfield… but let’s just skip the semantics and get right on down to brunch.

Deal? Deal!

Let’s do this!

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 4-6 stalks of asparagus (ends trimmed)
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/3-2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese plus extra to garnish
  • 2/3 cup half and half
  • salt and pepper to taste

EASY QUICHE CRUST

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. First make the crust by mixing the flour and salt with fork.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the oil and water with a whisk or fork to thicken.
  4. Pour into flour and mix gently with a fork. [just until mixed; don't overwork it]
  5. Divide dough into 4 equal parts and press each flat on a solid surface.
  6. You'll want to press the dough super thin so it comes out flaky and magical.
  7. Then press each doughy disc into 4 mini tart pans and season each with a little freshly ground black pepper.
  8. Making one big quiche instead? Press the dough into a 9-10 inch pie dish.
  9. Next start on your asparagus.
  10. Trim the ends and blanch in a thin layer of boiling water for about a minute or so, just long enough to turn the stalks bright green and tender. Immediately plunge the spears in an ice bath or rinse with super cold water to halt the cooking process [no soggy spears here!] Slice the spears into thin diagonal cuts... or pretty much any way you feel like slicing them! Just not super thick.
  11. Beat the eggs until the yolks and whites are incorporated and add your half and half.
  12. Add a little salt ad pepper to taste.
  13. Top the crust with minced garlic, veggies, and feta and pour in egg mixture.
  14. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes.
  15. Crumble a little feta on top and serve.
  16. If you're feeling feisty, top with a drizzle hot sauce and a barley-there sprinkle of red pepper flakes for an early morning pick-me-up... aka a mondo kick in the tastebuds=) You know you love it!

No asparagus? No problem! Try it with broccoli or spinach if your veggie choices are limited.

    Never would have thought to put “fluffy” and “asparagus” in same sentence – but you do both the quiche and the stalks justice! This is grand!

  • I swear it’s been quiche week! I love the asparagus stalks baked into the top! 

  • I vote that he needs to make you eggs annnnnd cookies on your birthday 🙂

  • I could each quiche every day. Asparagus too. And this is perfectly timed for the long weekend… three days of brunch!! Now that I’m GF, I have to try the crust using different flour, but I’ve actually found so far that GF flour is more forgiving for pastries because it doesn’t develop the gluten that can make overworked pastry tough! Hurray for one up-side! 🙂 

  • Moo Eleven

    OMG, I could eat one right now!  I LURRRRRVE ‘sparagus.  (Just hate the way it makes my wee smell!!!) I am trying this tomorrow – thanks!!!  Moo xxx

  • yummy! i love quiche too!  great way to get rid of on the border things that need to be eaten… throw it all in some egg mixture and eat away. 

  • Too hilarious – I missed that last sentence on your post and was about to sit down and write: “There are never too many quiche posts – I freaking love quiche!”. Haha then I saw your last sentence – great minds and all that…but still, I freaking love quiche!

  • RavieNomNoms

    Theres something wrong with me. Ive NEVER had quiche before, but I ADORE eggs. What the heck?! This looks awesome lady!

  • This really looks amazing! So dreamy! I want to bite right into it. 🙂 

  • Viviane Bauquet Farre

    Wonderful appearance! The split asparagus spear garnish is quite attractive and the golden brown crust signals that this was perfectly baked. Brava!

  • They are uber affordable at Bed Bath and Beyond with one of their coupons and are so small that you can stack them and then tuck them into an existing baking dish or bowl. I just nest them inside of something bigger until its time to whip them out and quiche them up! <3 Dooo it!

  • Dawn

    I freaking love that you gave me a new reason to use my little tart pans!  I am Totally in love with this easy recipe.

  • I think June 3 is going to be the best Holiday ever. Also, the boychild ate a gajillion balls.

    sriracha WILL be dolloped on top of this quiche. 

  • Love the garnish. I really enjoy having full mini sized version of things.  Where do you keep all of the extra tins.  That is the one thing that holds me back…no storage.

  • wtmontana

    I’m just a little bit hungry after reading this. Bookmarked and #nomnomnom ready to eat haha!
