Asparagus Quiches from The Carlton Inn Bed and Breakfast
National Asparagus Day – May 24
These delicious mini Asparagus Quiches are simple, tasty and can be served as a hearty breakfast or a light meal anytime. Thanks to the innkeeper at The Carlton Inn Bed and Breakfast for sharing. They can be made in small ramekins for a elegant presentation or in a simple muffin tin.
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup sliced onion
2 garlic clove, minced
1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut in pieces
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (Havarti is a good alternative)
3 TBLS chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 TBLS grated fresh parmesan cheese
1/4 cup green onion
1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Spray a standard 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray. I’ve also used ramekins (fewer portions)
3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, sauté 1 minute. Add asparagus, sauté another 2-3 minutes. Spread the mixture into the muffin tin.
4. Combine milk, cheese, parsley, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and eggs in a large bowl.
5. Pour milk mixture over asparagus mixture and sprinkle with parmesan and green onions.
6. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes (longer if using ramekins) or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
7. Let stand 5 minutes before serving
