Bacon, Asparagus, and Mushroom Quiche with Gruyere and Fontina

Bacon, Asparagus, and Mushroom Quiche with Gruyere and Fontina

I made this quiche yesterday morning after cleaning out my refrigerator. We had a pie crust that was nearly expired, a couple of pieces of bacon, a few spears of asparagus, a handful of mushrooms, and little chunks of gruyere cheese and fontina cheese leftover from other recipes. I grabbed some eggs and milk and tossed them together to make this bacon, asparagus, and mushroom quiche with gruyere and fontina. The combination of flavors was delicious and I loved how cheesy this quiche was. My husband and I devoured it for breakfast yesterday. We had leftovers for lunch today and can’t wait for the rest tomorrow. I think this may be my new favorite type of quiche. YUM!

How to Make a Bacon, Asparagus, and Mushroom Quiche with Gruyere and Fontina

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the bacon pieces in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and cooked. Place on a paper towel to drain grease.

Remove all but one teaspoon of bacon grease from the skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add the asparagus spears and crushed red pepper flakes and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

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

Next, 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 crumbled bacon, most of the mushrooms & asparagus, and some of the shredded gruyere and fontina cheese, and green onion in the bottom of the pie.

  1. Quiche is one of my favourite dishes, this sounds delicious. Have a good day, Diane

    Fixed for dinner tonight. I used half and half in place of milk and also did not add green onion because it is not listed in ingredients list and I didn’t have any when making. I used three thick cut slices of bacon but We felt the cheese overshadowed the bacon and we couldn’t taste it at all. Next time I’ll use more bacon, less cheese and definitely green onion.
