Ingredients

Crust

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

3-4 tablespoons cold water

Filling

8 ounces (2 cups) Land O Lakes® Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, shredded

6 slices crisply cooked bacon,  cut into 1-inch pieces

1/4 pound fresh asparagus

1 1/2 cups Land O Lakes® Half & Half

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, slightly beaten

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

 

 *Substitute 4 ounces cooked ham, chopped.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Coat 10-inch quiche pan with no-stick cooking spray. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place quiche pan onto baking sheet.

  2. STEP 2

    Roll dough into 12-inch circle on lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch. Fold into quarters. Unfold; ease into prepared pan, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Crimp or flute crust.

  3. STEP 3

    Spread cheese over bottom of crust. Sprinkle bacon over cheese. Place asparagus spears on top of bacon.

  4. STEP 4

    Stir together all remaining filling ingredients in bowl. Pour over asparagus mixture. Place baking sheet and filled quiche pan into oven. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden and set in center. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine flour and salt in bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chives and water (mixture will be crumbly). Shape into ball.

Chicken & Asparagus Quiche

In step 4, sprinkle 1 cup shredded cooked chicken over the cheese, then proceed as directed.

Tip #1

If you do not have a quiche pan, a 9-inch pie pan will also work.

Tip #2

For a crispier crust, blind bake the crust prior to filling. First, fill crust in quiche pan with pie weights or dry rice or beans. Bake crust at 400°F for 10 minutes. Remove to cool; remove pie weights. Fill crust with filling, then bake as directed.
