This easy quiche recipe has asparagus mushrooms and cheddar, and it can be prepped in just 5 minutes!
Here is a secret: quiche is incredibly quick and easy to make. And it looks so elegant! The other amazing thing about quiche is that it is simple to make two completely different quiches at once.
Next time you are hosting brunch, put this easy quiche recipe on the menu.
Quiche is a dish involving cheese, vegetables, and egg baked in a pie crust. It is the perfect thing to serve at a brunch, and you can customize it to include any cheese and vegetables you like.
I like to add my favorite cheese, Cabot Cheddar.
And to make things easy, I use sliced mushrooms. I add them right into the crust raw and let them cook right in the eggs. You don’t need to sauté the mushrooms in advance – so easy!
The asparagus gets chopped, and then the mushrooms, asparagus, and cheddar get layered in a store-bought pie crust.
Then pour a mixture of eggs, milk, cream, salt, and pepper over the top. I like the combination of mushrooms, asparagus, and cheddar, but you could use any vegetables and cheeses that you like.
Then the quiche bakes in the oven for about 40 minutes.
I first came up with this recipe in 2015, and I have made it several times since then. Most recently I made it when I was in Maine for Christmas Prelude. It was great to snack on throughout the weekend. We could simply grab a slice, throw it in the microwave, and have meals without making a mess in the kitchen.
When I am making quiche, I like to make two at once. Inspired by my obsession with roasted tomatoes, I made a spinach, roasted tomato, and mozzarella quiche.
This quiche did take a little longer, since I roasted the tomatoes and wilted the spinach first – but that only took an extra 15 minutes of time.
Quiche reheats very well too, just heat in a 300 degree oven for 20 minutes. You can also make the quiche a bit healthier by making a crustless quiche.
Sometimes I serve the quiche with a bit of bacon crumbled on top.

Easy Quiche Recipe with Asparagus, Mushrooms and Cheddar | A delicious crowd pleasing recipe that can be made with just 5 minutes of active preparation time!
- 1 9- inch Pie Crust
- 2/3 cup chopped Asparagus
- 1/2 cup sliced Mushrooms
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar
- 5 Large Eggs
- 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
- 1/2 cup Whole Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- dash of Black Pepper
Heat the oven to 375 degrees. There is no need to precook the pie crust. If it is frozen let it thaw for 15 minutes first.
Layer the asparagus, mushrooms, and cheese in the pie crust.
Mix the eggs, cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Either beat them by hand for 2 minutes, or use a mixer for 1 minute. You want the eggs to be light and fluffy.
Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cheese and into the pie crust. Fill the crust as much as possible, without letting the egg spill out.
Bake for 35-45 minutes, until the center of the quiche has firmed up.
