    I’ve made this before and again…..it is so good and so easy!! Even with leftovers we ate every bite!! Makes for cleaning the dish very easy!!
    I will also say not only delicious but nutritious!!❤️

    Delicious, easy, and quick to make – you can’t get a better combination than that! I have used milk, half and half, or cream. The taste is great no matter which I use but of course the texture is creamier with the half and half and cream.

    Delicious without the crust! I used smoked gruyere and it worked well with the ham and asparagus. Doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9×13″ dish for 35 min. Will be making this again! Note: 1 lb of asparagus = 2 cups. Also, I blanched the asparagus 4 minutes to give it a boost.

  4. We absolutely loved it….. no crust was a no- brainer. I cooked it a bit longer, but I would highly tecommend this delicious quiche. We ate the whole quiche at dinner. Actually cut the asparagus into 1/4” pieces and hubby said the asparagus was perfect. Definitely will do it again.

    I, for one, would never miss the crust. This is perfect for my low-carb lifestyle! Thanks for the great recipe.
