This Asparagus and Bacon Quiche recipe is part of Brunch Week. Prizes have been provided by sponsors. I have received gifts from several sponsors to thank me for participating. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
One of my favorite spring foods is asparagus. While we don’t grow any in the garden, I always look for fresh asparagus in the grocery store when it’s spring. This quiche recipe includes not only asparagus but also Egyptian Walking Onions from our garden. You may also know them by the name top setting onions. These little onions replant themselves year after year by forming a small onion bulb at the top of the green stalk. The stalk tips over and the onion bulb walks to its new location and plants itself for next year. Anything that replants itself year after year is a good choice in my book. If you don’t have Egyptian Walking Onions, you can use scallions in this quiche recipe instead.
