Secret Recipe Club: Spring Asparagus & Gouda Quiche

Secret Recipe Club

Spring Asparagus & Gouda Quiche | A great springtime breakfast #recipe

Oh yes, it's time once again for Secret Recipe Club. This month I got Laura of A Healthy Jalapeno as my assignment. Laura is a fellow army wife and she has a boatload of amazing recipes on her blog. I actually made two of her recipes.

The Slimmed Down Turkey & Spinach Meatloaf and this Spring Asparagus & Gouda Quiche - both were so good and everyone in the family loved them, but with the first, I got the worst pictures known to mankind! This quiche's pictures are passable, so I decided to share it. I've been on a huge asparagus kick lately and I had a ton of gouda in my fridge - thanks to Gouda's new biggest fan, my husband.

What you need:
  • 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 1/2 shallots, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bunch asparagus, chopped
  • 1 cup gouda, shredded
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pie crust
  1. Melt butter in a skillet and cook shallots for 1 to 2 minutes. Add garlic and asparagus and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add asparagus and cheese to pie crust, smooth as evenly as possible.
  3. Beat eggs with half-and-half, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Pour over asparagus and cheese.
  4. Bake at 350* for 55 to 60 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

Quiche is probably my favorite food group! This looks perfect--I will try it soon.
I agree, meatloaf is hard to photo. I did a post once on a yummy meatloaf and I actually got the best photo before cooking! Meat is difficult.

This is a perfect recipe for spring and one that would go nicely on an Easter brunch or dinner table. Love the addition of the gouda cheese. YUM!!!
Happy #src reveal day to you!

Asparagus just sings "Spring!", and this recipe celebrates it deliciously. Add a dusting of lemon zest and I'm in quiche heaven.

Brown food is so hard to photograph, and meatloaf is pretty high up that list! This quiche sounds great :)
