Canadian Bacon and Asparagus Quiche
Breakfast & Brunch
Need a quiche recipe that’s perfect for any occasion, whether a casual breakfast for your family or for a celebratory brunch with friends and family on a holiday or other special occasion? Our Asparagus Bacon Quiche recipe is made with a rich, buttery crust, a savory filling, and is topped with a wonderful Hollandaise sauce. You can’t go wrong with this dish! Try it out for yourself and then feel free to share it with your friends and family members on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.
Ready to give this dish a go? For the crust, you’ll need unbleached all-purpose flour, salt, Cabot Unsalted Butter (cut into pieces), and ice water. Once your dough is made following our recipe steps, press it into a flattened disk, wrap it in plastic, and refrigerate it for 3 to 4 hours. After the dough has been refrigerated for a few hours, preheat your oven to 300°F, unwrap and roll out your dough on a floured surface, and transfer dough to a 10-inch tart pan. Place Canadian bacon slices evenly over the bottom of your crust and arrange asparagus (trimmed, blanched, and cut into 1-inch pieces) on top of the bacon. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, then add cream, salt, and pepper, and whisk all together. Pour this mixture over asparagus and bake tart for an hour and a half – or until the custard is completely set to the center. While tart is baking, prepare your Hollandaise sauce according to the recipe instructions and serve over the warm tart.
