Asparagus Ham Quiche

This fantastic brunch dish is easy to make, has such a nice blend of flavors and looks so inviting. With the eggs, asparagus, ham and Swiss cheese baking into a hearty main dish, I can greet my guests without last-minute fussing in the kitchen. -Joyce Leach, Armstrong, Iowa

    Delicious flavor and very quick to assemble. I used fresh asparagus, so I roasted it in the oven first, which added a little extra flavor. Will definitely make this again.

    DELICIOUS! I didn't feel like making a pastry crust but was afraid I would miss it, but I didn't. This was so easy and very good. I made as directed but added some other ingredients: torn basil, sun dried tomatoes, crumbled bacon, Havarti cheese and some parm, (no onion per other reviews) chives and green onion.Yummm so good. I will definitely make again.

    This was so delicious! We love asparagus and it has such a short growing season here in Michigan, you just can't beat fresh veggies! I blanched the fresh asparagus for a minute and patted it dry before using. I was out of onion, but the flavors of the ham, Swiss and asparagus really stood strong, I think I'll make it w/out onion the next time as well. Also, I think I'll try gruyere cheese like MariylnSRV.

    I have made this recipe for my family's Christmas morning brunch for years. I assemble it the night before and pop it into the oven on Christmas morning. Everyone likes it.

    I've made this several times now. I've made it as written and other times with some minor changes. This is excellent and so easy, and every time I serve it, it gets raves from all ages. It also reheats well in the microwave. The changes I've made are: 1) I've made the recipe in a 13 x 9 inch pan, reduced the heat to 350 and just increased the baking time 2) I've used different combinations of cheeses -- gruyere + swiss, or medium cheddar + swiss 3) I've used different meats -- browned bulk sausage or chopped, crisped bacon 4) I've used broccoli and/or spinach instead of the asparagus. If you use fresh green vegetables, I recommend steaming them for 2-3 minutes in the microwave before adding them. You can also add 2 additional eggs and 1/2 cup milk for added nutrition. This is a winner no matter how you make it!

    This is excellent for a brunch or for when guests sleep over. It's a breeze to put together-and it makes it's own crust without the fuss. That means more time for my guests and there are never leftovers.
