Fully-loaded Asparagus Quiche

IMG_2613

This quiche is hearty enough to serve for dinner. And since I love breakfast, I did just that! Pair this with a refreshing fruit smoothie and you’ve got a satisfying meal.Β 

I also like making “crust-less” quiches, so if you’re looking for a healthy alternative, just cut out the crust!Β Its delicious both ways.Β (When I make this for breakfast, I usually skip the crust and mix it up the night before.)
