Reviews for Mushroom Asparagus Quiche
"I have made this several times and froze it and it comes out wonderful. Have given the recipe to several of my friends. The only thing I add is red and green pepper. My family ask for it often."
"Quiche, no matter what you put in it is delicious and easy to make...however, you are truly missing out on adding a sublime taste if you don't smear mustard over the pie crust or crescent rolls before you pre-bake it. I couldn't believe how it enhanced the flavor and brought it all together! I get raves and requests for the recipe but that is all there is to it! Try it...I guarantee that you and your guests and family will be raving about it! I use regular yellow mustard . Be sure to pre-bake the crust just enough to allow for the crust to bake and not be a raw dough ...then put your ingredients in to the pie shell and continue baking until the quiche is solid."
"Delicious! I did not add the asparagus and used 2 cups of sliced fresh mushrooms. I purchased the crescent dough to use and totally forgot I had bought it and instead used a regular pie crust. Thankfully, it didn't hurt the taste at all. I also added some Penzey's Mural of Flavor in addition to the other herbs. I received compliments from all of my dinner guests and I will definitely make this again. Next time, I will try the crescent dough. :)To the reviewer who mentioned some concerns about not having cream in this recipe, I admit that I had the same concerns, but the quiche turned out beautifully. In fact, I think that it turned out better than the other quiches I have made with the cream."
"Very tasty! I had an extra pie crust I needed to use so I will try with crescent rolls next time!"
"I normally make my own crust, but today I cheated. This crust is light and puff pastry like, and came out fantastic. A hard-core from scratch baker, I find this one really a great fast-to-make option! I eliminated the fresh parsley in lieu of using a nice and generous splash of marsala wine or two. WOWZA. I also used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Mom and I polished off an entire pie all by ourselves. Good thing I made two. To the reviewer below with the cream and egg issue, you're missing out if you haven't tried this recipe. Tastes like quiche, acts like quiche, and without the cream; and, there's enough flavor here to go around. I used two jumbo eggs, and it was plenty. Too bad you rated this one with a 3 star without trying it. It's definitely a five star, and so very adaptable to varying tastes, too."
"Delicious!! Made this today to bring as my contribution to Easter dinner. Everyone loved it. My best friend requested that I make it for her birthday dinner. I was concerned that it might be a little bland, so I added some chopped red bell pepper when sauntering the vegetables. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of the Sunny Paris seasoning from Penzey's spices. This recipe is a real keeper."
"Changed ingredients a bit...... Added some fine chopped red bell pepper. Husband wanted meat so added sausage. No rolls so used a pie crust. Added four extra eggs and milk then just 1/2 the cheese. Chopped asparagus stems small and left the tips long to arrange like wheel spokes in the round pie plate. Wish we could add a photo, it turned out really pretty. Had it for Easter dinner with a salad."
"I thought I read wrong with ingredients, but it was wonderful. So glad I followed directions. Also, easy to prepare for brunch with rolls for crust."
"This was amazing. I did add a little bacon and the 1/4tsp spices i accidentally doubled but glad i did... amazing. I got a couple "best quiche i've ever had" thank you for the recipe"
"One thing I can't understand, why would you rate a recipe if you haven't made it and why give it a 3 star rating?"
"I have never seen a quiche recipe without milk and/or cream, and they usually have at least four eggs. Honestly, I'm afraid to try this. I know there are lots of reviews but does it really make what is pictured here?"
"Made this 3 nights ago. Very good. I am waiting for my asparagus to grow so I can make it again. I used a regular pie crust and it worked fine. I used some hot Italian sausage instead of bacon. I did use extra Dijon mustard. I left out the sage because of the hot Italian sausage."
"I made this for my Mom's birthday lunch. I used dijon mustard on the reduced fat crescent rolls. My brother requested bacon to help him eat the asparagus so added about 1/3C of real bacon bits. Read and re-read to make sure I wasn't forgetting the cream. Went ahead and baked it like recipe said and it was very tasty. I'm looking forward to making this again. The crust was really easy and it did become rather dark golden brown but tasted fine. No soggy crust on this quiche."
"This dish was absolutely delicious. However would appreciate hearing from others if they also had problems with the crust getting too brown despite covering the edges with foil."
"My hubby does not like quiche, eggs or asparagus; but I made it anyway. He loved it and had a second piece. I added 2 pieces of well cooked bacon. This recipe is a winner"
"This was great. It was fast and easy and it was a hit. Its a keeper"
"This was delicious but I did add a couple of things, just because. I used a refrigerated pie crust and added an extra egg, 1/2 cup of half and half and 4 strips of cooked and crumbled bacon. Wow! Even better reheated. Thank you, Sharon for sharing this one."
"This is a fantastic recipe! I'm not sure why, because I'm pretty sure I got it from one of my TOH books, but my recipe was slightly different and then, of course, I added to it! I added finely diced smoked ham to the mushroom, onion & asparagus mixture and sprinkled with Tony's seasoning. I used a refrigerated pie crust. I used 3 eggs and 1 1/3c heavy whipping cream, used no parsley or garlic powder and seasoned with 1 tsp salt,1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp white pepper and 1 tsp dried basil. I covered the bottom of the crust with grated swiss and therefore, used no mozzarella. I also, saved the tips of the asparagus and placed them on top of the quiche after about 20 mins in the oven as a decorative garnish. This one is definitely a keeper. Served with some fresh sliced tomatoes and everyone loved it!"
"One tip when preparing this EXCELLENT quiche...saute the onions until translucent and set aside, saute the mushrooms until they've given up their liquid and then saute until most of the liquid has evaporated, add the onions back into the saute pan, use very thin asparagus and add them to the onion and mushroom mixture and saute until asparagus is tender. Otherwise this recipe works well - my guests loved this!"
"Very good Quiche quite different and savory. I followed the recipe and was please. Will keep making this. Lot's of compliments"
"I have made this many times and it always turns out great! Very simple with the crescent roll crust and I think that works just fine. I use dijon mustard for more of a kick. Love it get many complements."
"This recipe looks amazing. Looking to make this today. I don't have asparagus.Can broccoli be substituted?"
"Used refrigerated pie crust and canned mushrooms because that's what was on hand along with my fresh asparagus. I also used fresh sage and oregano. I used 3 medium eggs and one large because it did look a bit dry and I put it in a 10" pie plate because my last quiche ran over. I thought it was wonderful."
"My coworkers devoured it! I had to give the recipe to many of them."
"This is a great, quick meal when you are pressed for time in the morning or dinnertime! Loved everything about this recipe."
"I have made this so many times. All I can say is awesome on a Sunday morning! Taste of Home edition Feb/Mar 2008"
"This was amazing..just one comment..need to let cooked veggies cool and little..added mine to eggs and cheese mix and cheese melted and eggs cooked a little. But otherwise excellent!!"
"This recipe reads beautifully AND I had all of the main ingredients in the fridge, so yesterday I pulled this together for dinner. It is Amazing. Even better than it looks! I used my homemade mustard, substituted the leaves off of 6 twigs of fresh marjoram for the dried oregano, 2 sprigs of fresh sage, along with the dried basil mentioned (wishing I'd bought fresh basil, too!) I also ended up adding 1 more egg since 2 didn't seem like enough with the abundance of vegetables after cooking. I've never used a tube of crescent rolls as a crust before and was really happy with how easy it was and how nicely it worked with the flavors and texture of the quiche. This is Home Tested and Family Approved and will be repeated. Soon and often!"
"No pie crust used due to gluten allergy and this quiche was amazing! I will make this again and again. Is now my favorite kind of quiche!"
"This quiche was superb and the best quiche I've ever had. Great flavor and you don't need to add ham or anything else. I didn't use the crescent rolls and instead used refrigerated pie crust that I had. I also added a bit of chopped red pepper for color."
"I really enjoyed this quiche. It is the first I have ever made. next time I will just cut back a little on the asparagus. it does sound like a good idea to add ham like others have suggested."
"Amazing recipe!! I didn't use crescent rolls, but I made a simple flour, water, olive oil crust recipe. Didn't use the dried herbs, but added some fresh basil with the parsely. Didn't have mozz cheese so I used the regular cheddar and grated fresh parmesan I had in the fridge.. Came out AMAZING though. Def will make this over and over again."
"I saw this and I had to try it... Then I made my own substitutions One starting with crust... I made a butter pie crust, added 4 eggs instead of 2,crumbled bacon and my choice of seasoning... Since I am writing my own cook book as a hobbie for now I do not want to post every change...However my test kitchen of 8 choice mine..."
"Love this. It kind of has a woodsey flavor I think. I Always use real pie crust instead of the crescent rolls. I'm making it tonight actually."
"Wonderful and simple dish. I may cut back on the basil and pepper just a bit...personal preference."
"First time I ever made a Quiche and it was awesome. Not a fan of crust so I made it crustless but followed all other directions. Probably the best Quiche I have ever had."
"So good. The only change I made was to use a refrigerated pie crust. Turned out great and I will make it again!"
"Delicious! I would note that the recipe doesn't say to drain the veggies which is a must. The first time I made it turned out awful for that reason. Runny and no flavor because of all the liquid. Made it again this morning and it was amazing! So be sure to drain the veggie liquid!"
"This is an incredible recipe! Everyone that had a slice loved it. I made it exactly as the recipe said and it was moist and delicious! I love the combination of mushrooms and asparagus; they compliment each other well. Wonderful recipe and thanks for sharing! Kim Biegacki Warren, Ohio"
"Amazing. I've made it twice in the last week--it's asparagus season in our backyard-- and substituted green onion, another currently prolific garden produce right now. I used my own pie crust, just because I had one in the freezer. I also thought it odd to call for such little liquid, but found the cooked mushrooms, asparagus and onion make enough liquid."
"This turned out great, I had a bunch of asparagus that had wilted and baby bella and button mushrooms. I used some mustard packets from White Castles and about half the parsley because I was using dried and not fresh. My 13month old loved it and my husband liked that it only used 2 eggs (he is watching his cholesterol). I will be making this again."
"I used garlic crescent rolls and it turned out great!"
"I have made this recipe many times and we love it. However, I make it without the crust because we are cutting back on carbs and the extra calories. It's the best!!!!"
"I had a frozen piecrust in the freezer and some left over ham that I cubed to add to the recipe. It was delicious. Will make again!"
"My family loved this -- including my husband who is NOT an asparagus fan. It was delicious and a "keeper"."
"Great flavor! Have made this twice, once as a meal for a new mom. Fresh basil and oregano are nice, too, as well as adding cubed ham. I used reduced fat crescent rolls, as well as one of those metal "crust shields" because the edges seemed to get really brown before the filling was baked. It helped, but it was still a bit too done."
"This is very tasty. I didn't have an onion so used 1/2 of a red bell pepper instead which made it look pretty. I also used a frozen pie crust instead of the crescent rolls."
"Loved this quiche. I substituted my own pie crust but the rest of the ingredients I kept the same. Will definitely make this again with broccoli which is my husband's favorite."
"I am so glad you reprinted this recipe! I lost my original copy. This is a favorite of my husbands. I have added chopped up ham to ours to add just a little more to it. We love it!"
"I made this for supper last night and my boyfriend loved it! He said he wished I would have made two! It was easy to prepare and elegant to serve. Very good recipe!"
"This was exceptionally great! What I did not like was the crust. Does anyone have a suggestion for a substitute? Would a frozen pie crust work just as well? This is the first time I've had a quiche turn out well. Thanks."
"This was fantastic. I used less butter to saute the veggies and used lowfat crescent rolls. The only liquid was the 2 eggs and it worked perfectly! Delicious and easy, will definitely make again."
"It was my first quiche to ever make or eat! My fiance loved it and I did too. I added an extra egg and extra cheese along with hot sauce in mine also the extra cup of milk."
"I wouldn't change a thing.. All my friends love it also.. Thank-you"
"I followed the recipe exactly, and it was great! Even my husband, a non quiche lover, said it was good!"
"We loved this quiche! It was so quick to prepare. We had fresh garden tomatoes and added thin slices to the top. Delicious!"
