Asparagus and Ham Quiche #BakingBloggers #RecipeRedo

Diced ham, swiss cheese, fresh steamed asparagus, eggs, cream and a secret ingrdient that you probably have in your cupboard to make the easiest and most delicious quiche ever.


The Baking Bloggers are baking with Asparagus today.............
Sue of Palatable Pastime invites us each second Monday of the month to bake something up based on an ingredient or theme voted upon by the members.  This month we chose asparagus.  Let's take a look at what was baked up.......

When I was a brand new bride.....over 40 yrs ago now.....I picked up one of those paperback cookbooks that are near the cash register at the grocers.  I think it was by campbell's soup company and it was called the mix and match cookbook or something like that.

It had a plethora of recipes that you could make, all including that household staple, canned soup.  I have been making my quiche following this recipe for all of those years.  I have, of course, made quiche without the soup but, honestly, it is not as tasty.

So the premise of this quiche is you take one can of cream soup, any flavor you wish.  Meat of choice, vegetable of choice, cheese of choice, 4 eggs, light cream and a pie crust and you can have any flavor quiche you want, knowing that it will turn out perfectly.

I have shared this recipe before, waaaay back when this blog first started.  So long ago, in fact, that the recipe maker I was using at the time is going to be obsolete soon.  This means that I am making and sharing many old recipes so that my readers are still able to access them.  You're welcome.

  1. I remember making your ham and asparagus quiche for SRC. The "Cream of" soup is a nice twist!

  2. I've never tried a quiche with a creamy soup - I can see that infusing extra flavor and moisture; I'm going to try that version soon!

  3. What a blast from the past for SRC! That brings back memories. I think using soup for recipes is a great idea. Saves on the amount of cream. I'll have to keep this in mind as I occasionally have cans in the pantry.

  4. I would never have thought of using canned soup, I'll have to try this,it sounds delicious. I usually keep a couple cans of Cream of Mushroom soup around for another recipe I make.

  5. Love the idea of using canned soup. It adds to the flavor easily. This is a wonderful and scrumptious meal.
