Smoked Salmon Asparagus Quiche

After a Memorial Day weekend “up north” –with guests and lots of (delicious) fattening food, I was ready for a meal that is simple but delicious.  Quiche fits the bill–and can work well outside it’s normal brunch slot as a great dinner entrée. 

It can even be made without a crust if you are watching your waistline!  (Yes, that’s what I did for this!)

The other great thing about quiche is that it is flexible and can work with ingredients you have on hand.  Out of asparagus?  Make a spinach quiche.

Arrange asparagus like wheel spokes

I made my quiche in a 10 inch tart pan, which I like to use since it makes a pretty presentation.  Different pan sizes will require changing the amounts of ingredients—you would need to go down by about half for a frozen shallow 9 inch pie crust.  See Build Your Own Quiche for some guidelines.   Smoked salmon asparagus quiche makes a tasty, easy meal. Perfect for a nice spring breakfast or brunch--or with salad as a light dinner.

Right now, I have one daughter home from college for a summer internship. I love having her home but it’s not without challenge. After eating on her own during the school year, her food tastes have changed some.  It’s almost like having a picky toddler again! 

But when I served smoked salmon asparagus quiche and salad for dinner, it passed with flying colors.  And she can take leftovers to work for lunch! 

Yes, even when your kids are ­­(almost) grown, it’s nice to feel like a good mom!  Smoked salmon asparagus quiche makes a tasty, easy meal. Perfect for a nice spring breakfast or brunch--or with salad as a light dinner.

    With my locally sourced smoked salmon, which comes from Alaska and is sold out or farmers market, you can be sure I will be making this soon! I actually have four packets of smoked salmon in the freezer…
