Asparagus Bacon Quiche

 

I have played around with quiches and experimented a lot! I don’t like them too airy or too stiff or too dry. I want them soft, but firm enough to make a nice cut.    This comes out perfectly every time, any way.   

Typically asparagus is paired with swiss cheese in quiches. Use whatever cheese you like! I am partial to cheddar so I use that more often.

This is a great basic quiche recipe you can use for any cheese, vegetable, or meat you want.  

Do your own thing!

Enjoy!
