My family loves Asparagus and Quiche. Making a dish that combined the two was a no-brainer. This is a wonderful spring-time breakfast or brunch recipe that your family will appreciate. Just put this together and let it bake while you enjoy your first cup of coffee. If you’re a vegetarian just leave off the ham it is still delicious.
6 to 8 asparagus spears
1/2 bell pepper ( I used red a red one)
small onion chopped
1 cup cooked ham – cubed
3 cups shredded swiss cheese
1 Tablespoon fresh or dried parsley
1 pint egg beaters or 8 eggs
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
Wash asparagus and cook in a skillet of water for 3 minutes. Drain in colander. When cool enough to work with, chop asparagus into one inch pieces and place them in a large bowl. Add chopped bell pepper, onion, cubed ham, cheese and parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir with spoon until combined. Place in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Add eggs or egg beaters and milk to a bowl and beat until mixed. Pour over vegetable mix and bake in a 350 degree oven 30 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
I ate the vegetarian version of this (no ham) and it was perfect. Totally yummy!!!
