  • 7-8 spears of asparagus trimmed & chopped (3 trimmed but left whole for top)
  • Gruyere cheese shredded
  • 5 eggs
  • cups milk
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Coat a pie pan with cooking spray then carefully unroll the pre-made pie crust and place it in the pie pan. Crimp the edges.
  • Combine the eggs, milk, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a bowl and whisk until very well combined.
  • Sprinkle most of the chopped asparagus and Gruyere cheese in the bottom of the pie.
  • Add the well whisked egg mixture.
  • Sprinkle the remaining chopped asparagus and Gruyere cheese, then top with three trimmed whole asparagus spears, if desired.
  • Carefully place into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is set and not wiggly and the eggs are cooked through. Don’t overcook!
  • Let the quiche cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
