A quiche is a mixture of milk and eggs and is baked to custard like consistency. A frittata is started on the stovetop and finished in the oven – not this! Most of the quiches I’ve tried have had a (flaky buttery) crust, but you don’t even miss the crust on this one!
I’ve had many quiches in my short time but this one is egg-cellent. I cracked the secret to the perfect ratio of milk to eggs. I’m not eggs-agerating when I say you don’t have to shell out tons of dough for this!
Hahahaha I crack myself up.
I have bunches and bunches of asparagus to use up thanks to it growing in abundance on the farm! Kelvin is keeping me stocked up. Usually I just toss it in some olive oil, salt & pepper, and garlic powder and roast it for 15 minutes. Please feel free to share any of your favorite asparagus recipes with me!
This quiche is based off of my favorite quiche recipe. I added some asparagus and green onions and it’s so yummy! Mom and I enjoyed it warm out of the oven, and the leftovers straight from the fridge were pretty dang good too. Make this for your next brunch!!
