Ingredients in my Asparagus Quiche

Here is a quick snapshot of the ingredients you’ll need, but be sure to find the full recipe card (printable) at the end of the post for exact measurements.

  • ASPARAGUS: The star of the show!
  • UNBAKED PIE CRUST: Make your own or use store-bought! I prefer a deep dish pie crust.
  • CHEESES: I love a blend of mozzarella and gouda cheeses, but feel free to substitute in your favorites. Gruyere cheese is another favorite.
  • EGGS: I recommend pulling them out of the fridge and allowing them to get to room temperature for best results binding everything together nicely in this recipe!
  • ONION: Don’t skip the onion, it adds a great flavor!
  • HALF-AND-HALF: You can also use heavy cream.
  • SEASONINGS: I love a blend of salt, black pepper, ground mustard and a pinch of nutmeg (yes, trust me!)

How to Make Asparagus Quiche

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. Prep Pie Crust: Place the unbaked pie crust in a deep dish pie pan and set it aside.
  3. Combine: In a mixing bowl, combine the light cream, shredded Gouda cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, lightly beaten eggs, ground mustard, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  4. Add Asparagus and Onion: Add the diced onion and chopped asparagus to the mixture and stir until evenly distributed.
  5. Pour: Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  6. Decorate: If desired, arrange asparagus spears on top of the quiche for garnish.
  7. Bake: Place the quiche in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the center is set and the crust is golden brown.
  8. Cool & Serve: Once baked, remove the quiche from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Quiche Tips

  • Mozzarella and Gouda Cheeses – You can substitute the cheeses for whatever you like, just keep the proportions the same. Cheddar cheese, gruyere cheese and parmesan cheese would all make delicious alternatives.
  • Why the nutmeg? Nutmeg enhances creamy flavors and can cut the eggy flavor that can be found in quiches. It’s the little secret ingredient that we never leave out!
  • Can I use a substitute for light cream? Yes. You can use half-and-half or whole milk.
  • Bake your quiche on the bottom rack for even cooking.
  • Don’t overfill your quiche! Eggs will rise when baking.
  • Prevent pie crust edges from over-baking: If your pie crust edges begin to get too brown, then you can cover them with aluminum foil while baking.
Healthy Quiche with Asparagus

Do I need to blind bake my pie crust? You do! This helps avoid a soggy crust, and no one wants an asparagus quiche with a bottom crust that’s soggy. Basically, it’s baking it before it has the filling to help it be fully baked through once it’s baked with the filling added. Don’t skip this step!

Decorating the Asparagus on top of the Quiche: The quiche has chopped asparagus mixed in with the filling, but I love to decorate the quiche with a spoke design using extra asparagus spears. You can design the top however you like!

Can I add bacon or ham to this asparagus quiche? Yes, of course! Chopped bacon or ham would be a delicious addition.

Can I reheat this asparagus quiche? Yes, just store covered in the refrigerator and reheat!
