This quiche is one of my favorite dishes to make on holiday mornings. It’s 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.
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!
