Ingredients

  • 15-20 asparagus spears thin is best
  • 5 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk (any type or combination will work. I use a mixture of skim milk and half and half.)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon thyme
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese shredded
  • ½ cup ham (optional) diced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cut woody ends off of the asparagus spears.
  • Cut asparagus spears in half. Set top halves of spears aside and cut remaining halves in 1 inch segments.
  • Combine remaining ingredients, except for long pieces of asparagus spears and pie crust, if using, in a bowl.
  • Pour mixture into a 9 inch pan coated with cooking spray (or into the pie crust, if using.)
  • Using a fork, distribute ham, cheese and small asparagus pieces in pan.
  • Place long asparagus spears in a sunburst design. (See picture)
  • Bake quiche uncovered for 60-70 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. The top should be lightly browned and the quiche will continue to set after removed from the oven.
  • Allow quiche to sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting.

Notes

Quiche can be frozen before or after cooking. Before cooking add all of the ingredients to a plastic bag that seals. Store in freezer. When ready to cook, defrost in the refrigerator, pour mixture into a pan and cook as directed. After cooking, wrap slices with plastic wrap and place in freezer. Slices can be re-heated in the microwave or oven.
Keep this recipe South Beach 1 compliant with low-fat milk and low-fat or fat-free cheese.
