Asparagus Bacon Quiche Recipe

Lovely asparagus peeks out of every slice of this hearty quiche, which is delicious and a little different. I like to make it for special occasions—it's a welcome addition to any brunch buffet. —Suzanne McKinley, Lyons, Georgia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 eggs

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onions
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 2. Cook asparagus in a small amount of water until crisp-tender, about 3-4 minutes; drain well. Arrange the bacon and asparagus in the crust.
  • 3. In a bowl, beat eggs; add cream, 1/2 cup cheese, onions, sugar, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour over asparagus. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 4. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 23-25 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 6-8 servings.
