Bacon, Asparagus and Parmesan Quiche

Cheesy bacon and asparagus quiche

One of my favorite comfort foods is Quiche! I don’t make it very often since the other members of my family don’t really like eggs and I don’t need all the calories.  But this Bacon, Asparagus and Parmesan Quiche is a game changer!

As part of my $25/week challenge, I wanted a cheap and easy protein rich meal and quiche fit the bill!  I typically make Quiche Lorraine (which features bacon, onions and cheese) but I wanted to lighten this new version up a little and add some veggies.   (If you don’t like quiche, here are some other brunch recipe ideas!)

So for this recipe I added fresh steamed asparagus, as well as replacing one of the whole eggs with 2 egg whites.  Sure, 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream plus the butter laden crust is still not “diet” by any means, but every calorie matters!

The key to this recipe is pre-cooking a bunch of the ingredients.  You need to steam the asparagus, cook the bacon, sweat the onions and pre-bake the crust.  Once you have all the ingredients prepped, making the quiche is easy.

Arrange the bacon, onions and asparagus in your par-baked pastry shell.

And here is a tip I learned from my mom: Put the quiche in the over BEFORE adding the custard mix. This means you won’t spill or need to balance a really full pie pan! Adding custard to quiche
Bake and serve warm (although this recipe reheats great!)
