Asparagus Mushroom Quiche

Nothing says Mother’s Day like a quiche. The buttery crust and fresh fillings—in this case, spring favorites asparagus, mushrooms and onion—show Mom how much you care. But don’t be intimidated: A super-easy refrigerated pastry makes this recipe a cinch to put together. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    8 servings


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • Unroll pastry into a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate; flute edges.

    This is one of the best quiche recipes ever. I made it with morels that a friend gave me. Didn't miss the cheese at all. Easy to make & sooo good.

    I made this recipe a few times and really like the creamy filling. I do make my own crust using both butter and shortening.

    I was hesitant to make this when I saw that there wasn't any cheese in the ingredients, but I sure didn't miss it. Great flavor and turned out perfectly. I will be adding this to my quiche files.
