Asparagus Gruyere Quiche
This Asparagus Gruyere Quiche is one of my favorite dishes to make on holiday mornings or any morning…just because. It is decadent, rich and so yummy. Guess what…it’s super easy to make! I’m not a baker, so I do cheat a little and buy a frozen Pillsbury Deep Dish Pie Crust. This recipe is also perfect for a bridal or baby shower. Consider buying mini pie crusts to prepare as an appetizer. I would love to see your creativity. Contact me here with any questions you may have or share a picture of what you created on my social media pages, Facebook Instagram or Twitter! I promise you and your loved ones with love this recipe, they will be begging you to make it once a week!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 frozen Pillsbury Deep Dish Pie Crust (Do not thaw)
- 1 bunch of asparagus (cut in 1″ pieces)
- 1 small shallot
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 to 1 Cup Gruyere cheese (shredded)
- 4 eggs
- Black pepper to taste
- 1 TBLS olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the cut asparagus and shallots, saute until just slightly tender…about 5 minutes. Do NOT brown. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy cream and pepper. Take out your frozen pie crust and line the bottom with about 1/3 of the Gruyere cheese. Add the sauteed veggies then pour the egg/cream mixture on top. Add the remaining cheese and bake on 350 for about 40 to 45 minutes. Cheese will be brown…test with a knife in middle to make sure egg is fully set. ENJOY! As long as you use the recipe for the egg/cream mixture…you can make this quiche with whatever ingredients you like…if you use sausage or bacon, I would suggest cooking them first!
