I can’t believe that this is only the second quiche that I am sharing with you.
I am in love with quiche. It has always been a favorite dish of mine.
I got a call from my mom on Saturday morning and she asked me if I was hungry.
She told me that she made the best quiche ever, did I want any? I had just finished breakfast but figured that by the time I got ready and drove home, I would be ready to try this quiche.
I pulled in, walked through the door and my mom sliced me a huge slice of quiche. It took one bite for me to agree. This was the best quiche ever!
I don’t know what it is. It may be the combination of fresh, spring veggies. Or maybe my mom found the perfect egg to cream ratio. Whatever it is, this quiche is just right.
*This makes two 9-inch quiches
1 bunch of asparagus
4 green spring onions
8 oz. mushrooms
2 – 9 inch round pie crusts
8 eggs, divided
1 cup half and half, divided
1 tablespoon butter
Salt, pepper and garlic salt
1 cup cheese, divided (I used mixed Italian and freshly grated parmesan)
Preheat oven to 350*. Roll out the dough and lightly grease two 9-inch pie pans. Push the dough into the pie pans.
Prep your veggies. Chop the asparagus, onions and mushrooms so that they are all about the same size. Drizzle some olive oil into a pan over medium heat and once hot, add asparagus first. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until asparagus begins to get soft. Then add the onions, cooking another 2 minutes to get them soft. Next, add the mushrooms, salt, pepper, garlic salt (to taste) and butter and cook all veggies together for about 5 minutes. Veggies should be soft and slightly browned when done.
For each quiche, crack 4 eggs into a bowl. Whisk well with 1/2 cup of cream.
To assemble each quiche, first put the veggies onto the bottom of each crust. Then add 1/2 cup of cheese to each, on top of the veggies. Next, pour the egg mixture over the veggies and cheese.
Place the quiche in the oven. Set the time for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, stir the quiche filling around. It should be slightly set already, but that is okay. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.
