Ham and Asparagus Quiche

Ham and Asparagus Quiche is super easy and perfect to serve at a cute brunch or even have on rotation for a simple weeknight meal. 

Quiche is just a simple savory pie filled with a variety of fillings. It’s similar to a frittata, but quiche has a pie crust.  This one is filled with the beautiful asparagus we’ve been finding at the farmers’ market and bites of delicious, savory ham. After tasting just one bite, One Potato’s co-founder, Catherine, said her kids filled the kitchen with sounds of ooh and ahh.

This recipe is a great make-ahead recipe too. You can mix up the filling the night before and refrigerate it, then the next morning, just pop the filling into the pie crust and bake! It’s so easy. Quiche is easy to prepare and super customizable! You can put any of your favorite veggies in them and they’ll be equally delicious.
