Ingredients

Crust

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
3 to 4 tablespoons cold water

Filling

6 slices crisply cooked bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 pound fresh asparagus spears
4 ounces (1 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese
5 Land O Lakes® Eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F. 

Combine flour and salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chives and enough water just until flour is moistened. (Mixture will be crumbly.) Shape into ball; flatten slightly.

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into ungreased 10-inch quiche pan; unfold, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Crimp or flute edge of crust. 

Sprinkle bacon over bottom of crust. Cut half of asparagus into 1-inch lengths; cut remaining asparagus into 4-inch lengths. 

Combine 1-inch asparagus pieces, cheese, half & half, eggs, salt and pepper in bowl. Pour over crust. Place 4-inch asparagus spears in random pattern on top of egg mixture. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden and set in center. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

My husband is not a Quiche fan, but he loves asparagus, There were no leftovers, what more can be said!
My familey don"t like asparagus any ideas to replace the asparagus.
Great recipe! Made it twice -- The first time as directed, the second time with chopped ham and Monterey Jack cheese. Yum! The leftovers make great weekend breakfast and work lunches for my husband and me.
Excelent!!!!
Excellent crust. Quiche is very light and tasty. If you can't finish it all at the first serving, it reheats very well.
I did add some cubed ham and I used swiss cheese instead of cheddar, excellant
Liked the chives in the pie crust
This is a very easy and very good quiche.
I added red pepper strips in an alternating pattern with the asparagus. This is my favorite quiche recipe. The crust is fantastic and so easy!
