all I’ve heard my whole life is: “real men don’t eat quiche”….and being married to a TRUE country boy, I would have never thought my husband would like it!!! me and my daughter, LesLeigh have ALWAYS wanted to try it, but we’re “chicks”…..so her LAST breakfast before we moved her to graduate school, I made quiche, and let me tell ya…..it was the BOMB DIGGIDY!!!!!
we ALL loved it…..the hubs, me, LesLeigh and clay!!! when I got up to do the dishes afterwords, it was GONE!!!! so this week, I decided I’d TRY and temp all you readers with “country boy” husbands to give it a whirl!!!! ENJOY!!!!
ASPARAGUS AND SMOKED HAM QUICHE
1 UNCOOKED pie shell, placed in tart pan
6-8 eggs, scrambled with a little milk
about 3-4 stalks sautéed asparagus, chopped in bite size pieces
about 1/2 C grated cheddar cheese
4 slices of chopped smoked ham (we used the deli-sliced lunchmeat)
salt and pepper to taste
place pie crust in tart pan, mold to bottom and sides, place ham, asparagus, cheese, salt and pepper in bowl with scrambled eggs, and mix together, pour into tart pan, place in oven preheated to 400, cook apx 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and eggs look “set.” let settle about 5 min and cut into pizza style slices and serve.
