Crustless Asparagus Quiche

A Few Words…

My original intention was to serve grilled asparagus as a side dish for dinner, but I forgot to. Instead I used it to make a yummy quiche!

This was absolutely delicious, light and so easy to make. The leftovers were great for my lunches during the week! It’s perfect for brunches or dairy suppers too!

On a side note:

Do you ever buy blocks of cheese? I use a hand grater to shred cheese and then I freeze whatever I haven’t used in 1/2 cup portion baggies. It thaws beautifully and quickly. I love the OXO Good Grips Box Grater and if you don’t have one, you can purchase it here!

Serves 4-8 people

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus, washed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1 tbs. butter, divided (I used coconut oil)
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used 1% milk)
  • 2 tbs. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions:
Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet and saute the asparagus and chopped onion until tender, about 7-8 minutes. When ready, set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate with the remaining butter, sprinkle the bottom with the shredded Parmesan cheese and set aside.

Combine the eggs, milk, flour, baking soda, salt and pepper in a large bowl and whisk until there are no lumps. Add the cooked asparagus, onions and cheddar cheese to the egg mixture and mix well.

Pour into prepared pie shell and bake on the bottom rack in the oven for 30-35 minutes, until the egg is set.
