Asparagus and Gruyere Quiche

Asparagus and Gruyere Quiche

It’s no secret that I love making quiche because they are terrific for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I love how easy they are to make, especially if you use a store-bought pie crust, and they don’t dirty a lot of dishes. Making quiche is also a fantastic way to use up leftover meats, cheese, and veggies which helps clean out the refrigerator. I made this quiche for lunch and thought it was delicious. My daughter came home from school later in the afternoon and gobbled down two slices. We both really loved the combination of asparagus, eggs, and Gruyere. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

How to Make an Asparagus and Gruyere Quiche

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Coat a pie pan with cooking spray. Carefully unroll the pre-made pie crust and place it in the pie pan. Crimp the edges.

Combine the eggs, milk, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a bowl and whisk until very well combined.

Sprinkle most of the chopped asparagus and Gruyere cheese in the bottom of the pie.

Carefully place into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is set and not wiggly and the eggs are cooked through. Don’t overcook! Let the quiche cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.

  1. Quiche is a favorite of mine too. And I also love this combo!!! However, I am currently on Weight Watchers, and have to be careful with all of these yummy things!!!!
    I hope you have been well!!

  2. I make little egg muffins for Remy to eat for lunch every day. I’ve stuffed them with a lot of veggies but not asparagus! Time to change that. Hopefully she won’t mind if I sneak a few…

  3. i think asparagus should be present in all quiches–it gives them such a neat look! pretty good flavor addition too. 🙂

      Been making asparagus quiche for years now! We just adore them! I use a combination of mozzarella and feta cheese and I always add 1/2 lemon (squeezed) to the egg mixture and whisk! The lemon really adds a fresh flavor! I also add a little caramelized red onion to the mixture! (make sure you cool it down first so you don’t scramble the eggs!) I also use a mixture of half and half and milk! (I know, I’m bad!) I’ve been enjoying your recipes for years Pam! Thanks so much! Just thought I’d pass some ideas on if you happen to find those ingredients in your fridge!

    Would it work to use pickled asparagus in this quiche? I got a jar of pickled asparagus and found we did not like pickled asparagus alone. However, I just loved a pickled asparagus quiche which I purchased from a “country store.” Can’t find a pickled asparagus quiche recipe online, so I wondered if I could adapt your recipe.

    1. Pamela,

      I’ve never tried pickled asparagus quiche so I am not sure how it would turn out. Please let me know if you make one and how you like it!

      Cheers,
      Pam

  5. How much gruyere cheese?

    1. Peggy,

      I normally use 1/2-3/4 cup, depending on how much I have. Hope this helps.
