Ham and asparagus quiche is the answer to your Mother's Day breakfast or brunch. Savory and perfectly spiced with the addition of rosemary, everyone will enjoy it.
As a child, I stayed away from sugary cereals and I think that stayed with me to adulthood. Quiche, breakfast burritos and any type of eggs are my kind of breakfast. They also are a perfect dinner solution when you need to cook something quick and easy.
This rosemary ham and asparagus quiche is just the thing to make on Mother’s Day morning, but also a recipe that I frequently use on my dinner rotation.
This quiche tastes just as good heated up the day after you make it, so feel free to bake it in advance, then just relax and kick up your feet the morning you are serving it.
Wouldn’t you like to get that extra hour of sleep, especially on Mother’s Day? Whether you are serving the quiche for brunch or dinner, it pairs well with a heirloom tomato and chick pea salad or a strawberry spinach salad.
Dijon mustard and the rosemary ham really bring out the special flavor in this quiche. I buy rosemary ham at Trader Joe's or my supermarket deli, but if you cannot find it, regular ham will work fine. Just sprinkle a teaspoon or two of dried rosemary on the ham when you are adding it to the quiche.
Making pie crust is my weakness, but a refrigerated pie crust works well in this recipe. One of these days I will become a better pie baker but in the meantime, I happily use readymade crust with no shame.
I love all the available asparagus in the grocery stores right now. I have been eating it three times a week, and I made this goat cheese asparagus tart as an appetizer last weekend. This is another recipe that would be perfect on your Mother’s day brunch buffet!
So what are your plans this Mother’s day? Do you have breakfast or brunch plans?
