Every brunch needs sweet and savory dishes.   While I have a lot of fun mixing up my sweet dishes I almost always make quiche as one of my savory dishes.  It’s a dish that’s easy to make, you can add just about any ingredient to it, and people seem to love it.

Sausage, Onion, and Asparagus Quich with Alpine Cheddar Cheese

Whenever I make a quiche I go through my refrigerator and pick out vegetables that I think will work together.  Then I find a cheese that will pair well with the vegetables.  The last thing I do is add in a meat.   I usually go with sausage or bacon but sometimes I add in ham.  It just depends on what other ingredients are in the quiche.

Everything you need to make an awesome Sausage, Onion, and Asparagus Quiche!

This Asparagus, Sausage, and Onion Quiche was easy to put together but had a lot of delicious flavor.  I used Michigan Asparagus, Cal-Organic Onions, and garlic.  I paired the vegetables with Cabot Alpine Cheddar Cheese.  Then I added in mild Italian sausage.  I mixed all the ingredients together with Eggland’s Best eggs.

I usually end up adding a lot of spices to my quiche but in this case I didn’t think it needed much.  I added in a little bit of salt, pepper, paprika, and oregano and called it a day.   The quiche baked up brown and beautiful and it smelled so good.

The flavors in this quiche were just perfect together.  The asparagus and onions worked well with the creamy, nutty Alpine cheddar cheese.   The mild Italian sausage added just a touch of spice and a ton of flavor.  We enjoyed this quiche for dinner one night and then had it again for brunch the next morning.  It’s a delicious savory dish that works for any meal.
