Chicken Sausage and Asparagus Quiche

quiche 15 You guys… I’ve been obsessing over these kinds of youtube videos. I can’t stop watching them because they are super cute and I love to dance. I also love weddings. {This one makes me happy too.}  I’ve debated becoming a wedding planner several times in my life because then I could live vicariously through my clients and get married again and again. If Gordon would let me, I’d marry him over and over, just so I could get those butterflies. {I even have a wedding pin board on pinterest. Obsessed much?}  If I could go back and do it again, I’d make my husband a dance lover, get married, tape our little wedding number and become youtube sensations.

Does this have anything to do with quiche?

No. Well sort of.

You see, I am very much obsessed with both right now. Anything that involves dancing, music, flaky pastry and/or cheese is hard to dislike in my book. I’ve covered the quiche topic before but it’s hard to get away from when a certain someone is literally obsessed.

Actually, my husband is a quiche lover as well. So is my daughter. So are my siblings. My momma trained us well and taught us what was important. Pie crust 101 + quiche making. Oh yeah. It was only after I was out of the house that I realized the versatility and beauty of the quiche. You can add quite literally whatever you want to it, crack a few eggs into the mix and that’s dinner! Easy peasy. Especially if you buy the frozen store bought shells. Seriously 5 minutes of prep and bake that sucker off.

Quiche also has that va-va-va-voom factor going for it too: It looks and sounds fancy so when you’re throwing a dinner party, baby shower, etc. you look like a rock star when in fact you’re an OCD married wedding lover with a blog, a child and some junk in the trunk.


Here’s how you do it:

quiche 2Start by rolling out your pie crust and fit it into your tart shell. I use this recipe. If you don’t have one of these handy 10″ tart pans, just use a pie plate. No big deal 🙂 Set this aside in the fridge while we do the other steps.

quiche 3Grab a few asparagus spears…maybe 1/3 of a pound and steam them up until they’re crisp-tender. I just threw mine into the microwave for 3 minutes.

quiche 5While the asparagus is cooking, saute a few onions in some butter. Onions frying in butter is one of life’s simple pleasures…not to mention will make your house smell AMAZING. “what’s that smell?” “the smell of me being awesome”.

quiche 4The asparagus should be just about done now, so drain off the water and top with a little ice. This will stop the cooking process and keep them bright green.

quiche 1Now onto these little beauties…I started buying these 6 months ago. They are FAB.U.LOUS!! Precooked, heathy, gluten free, really really really yummy and really really really versatile.

quiche 6So open the package and chop up 2 of these bad boys.

quiche 7You’re also gonna want to grate some cheese, if you please. I feel like peas. You are the bees knees.

I can’t stop.

quiche 9Ok, so NOW….here’s what you do–take that cooked onion and throw it into a bowl. Add the chopped sausages, half the grated cheese, some eggs, some cream and some s&p. Mix this up and that’s your filling.

quiche 10Pour it all into that tart shell,

quiche 11top with the remaining cheese,

quiche 12and add the asparagus. Doesn’t this look so good? I’m dying 1000 deaths right now. Bake this at 375 for 20-30 minutes. I covered mine with foil for the first half and removed it so the cheese and edges could brown up.

quiche 13Like so. Doesn’t this look purdy? Talk about impressive.

quiche 14Aaaaaaaaand the best part: it tastes good too! My husband almost ate this whole thing before I could snap this picture.

quiche 16But then I beat him senseless and ate the whole thing myself.

Just kidding.
