Dinner: Sausage & Asparagus Quiche

I’ve finally gotten back to the whole cooking thing. Hopefully that baking motivation is going to come back soon because I really want that Baking Through Disney Project to move on.  I’m seriously done with Snow White.  I just have one more movie adaptation to go up and then its the final baking concept and that has seriously lessened in difficulty but I know what I want to do.

Last weekend, we went to Costco (and its dangerous in there). We have a new goal now that whatever we get, we need to eat in a fast and efficient manner before it rots and goes to waste.  Its one of the reasons I try to avoid buying vegetables and fruits there because its just me and my boyfriend and he knows this is a fact but he willingly eats like 4 types of veggies and 3 types of fruits (I’m not even exaggerating) so a lot of times, whatever I get, I have to eat all by myself.  So Costco size isn’t exactly practical.  Our buy this time was asparagus.  On Monday night, I made a super late night decision and pulled out soon to expire pie shells and decided that I’d try my hand on making my first quiche.

Late at night also means I needed to use what was on hand. And the result…

Sausage and Asparagus Quiche

Sausage and Asparagus Quiche

 Ingredients: 

1 9 inch pie shell
5 sausages, sliced/chopped
6 stalks asparagus, chopped
3 large eggs, beaten
Thyme, oregano & garlic salt (optional)

How to make it:

1. Follow the instructions on how to prepare the baking shells. Usually its baking 8-10 minutes at 425F.
2. Fill the shell with beaten eggs.
3. Add in the asparagus and sausage.
4. Season as desired. I used garlic salt, thyme and oregano.
5. Put in oven at 375F and bake for 50-60 mins.

This is an extremely simplified version of making a quiche. I was reading recipes afters that add milk or cream or whatnot. I can understand how it would make it thicker and more fluffy perhaps. However, on a whim and being time efficient, the preparation work for this is very minimal so its a great choice.

The combination of asparagus and sausage was pretty good. Only thing to beware of is to not use the asparagus ends that are too old then it becomes really chewy or simply a chore to eat. However, the taste was great. I was happy with the choice of spices that we chose.

Do you like quiches? What is your choice of ingredients?

  1. Great job, Kim! It looks super delicious!
    And yes, Costco is amazing. But you have to choose your purchases wisely or you wind up with a bunch of stuff that goes bad before you can catch up to it!

    • Thanks Smash! Totally! Learn as we go, right? I just moved in with my fiance like 4 months ago so we’re finding the balance of what is feasible to eat from a Costco purchase or what might cost a little more at grocery but we can manage better 😉 So far these past two weeks, its been good.
