Whip up a classic quiche with asparagus, onions, creamy cheddar cheese, and spices!
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • ½ lb. mild Italian sausage
  • ½ onion, chopped (I used Cal-Organic Farms)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 spears of asparagus, cut into 2 inch pieces (I used Michigan Asparagus)
  • 5 eggs (I used Eggland's best)
  • ½ c. milk
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. oregano
  • 1 t. paprika
  • 4 oz. Cabot Alpine cheddar cheese, shredded
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the pie crust dough in a pie pan and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet cook the sausage over medium high heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the sausage begins to brown.
  3. Add the onions and garlic to the sausage and saute for 3 minutes.
  4. Add in the asparagus and cook for 3-4 additional minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. In a large bowl combine the eggs, milk, pepper, salt, oregano, and paprika. Mix well to combine. Add in the cheese and mix.
  6. Spoon the sausage mixture into the egg mixture and mix to combine. Pour into the pie crust dough. Top with additional shredded cheese if desired.
  7. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the pie crust is golden brown and the top of the quiche has browned.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
