Reviews for Asparagus Swiss Quiche
"Added it to the recipe box for favourites only. :) Will make adjustment by steaming and drying the Asparagus to compensate for a bit of a soggy bottom, however it was superlative all around."
"I make a number of different quiche recipes, and this is among the best of them. I use a savory crust recipe with Parmesan cheese in it, which complements the quiche quite well."
"this quiche is awesome! I make it often and love love love it"
"My family loved it! I doubled the recipe to make 2 and was glad I did- all gone very quickly."
"The best quiche, I add fresh mushrooms and some diced ham as well."
