This asparagus and bacon quiche recipe is one of my favorites. 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.

So, have you ever heard of Egyptian walking onions? 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.  Then, 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.

    This sounds amazing, I love quiche and asparagus, definitely am going to try this!
  2. Oh I love the idea of combing asparagus and bacon together! 
  3. Christine (Cook the Story) says
    Walking onions are the coolest thing I've EVER heard of. I'm going to try ordering some online. Do they taste like regular green onions? Your quiche looks wonderful too. I adore asparagus and quiche. A match made in heaven!
    • Ellen Christian says
      Yes, the green part tastes very similar to a scallion. If you let the bulb form on top (in the fall), it's quite small but works well to toss in soups and chilis. Just make sure you let some of the re-plant.
  4. I absolutely love Quiche - but I have never attempted to make one. This recipe sounds really yummy. 
  5. kelly @ kellybakes says
    I've never heard of a walking onion! How neat! Thanks for sharing this quiche and for teaching us something new!
  6. My husband loves asparagus and is planting it for the first time this year but obviously it won't harvest for a bit.  It's not on my list of favorites though. I'll have to make this for him. Thanks
  7. yummm asparagus is one of my fave veggies - this sounds like a great combo
  8. I love asparagus, I've been eating it like crazy since it's back in season and this is a wonderful way to serve it!
  9. I've never heard of Egyptian Walking onions. Can you find them in stores anywhere?
    • Ellen Christian says
      I've never seen them in the store. I got several at a plant sale years ago and planted them in the garden. You can substitute scallions if you can't find them.
  10. I love asparagus! And we all know you can't go wrong with bacon. :) Looks like a winning quiche combo!
  11. Thanks for the yummy recipe - saving that one!!
  12. Liza @ Views From the 'Ville says
    Apparently you read my mind because we were JUST talking about trying to find a quiche recipe with asparagus in it, after having made a yummy fritatta the other day and wanting to try something else new.  Totally making this for brunch on Mother's Day!
    • Ellen Christian says
      Oh I love fritattas too!  I have more asparagus to use up. I just need to think about what to make!
  13. Holly Storm-Burge says
    This sounds so good! I do a quiche with Spinach, Mozzarella, & Feta that we love, but it's the only quiche I know; thanks for the recipe!
  14. steve weber says
    the quiche and asparagus recipe.. going to make it this week.
  15. Great ingredient combination! Quiche is an all-time favorite of mine!
  16. This sounds so good plus the pictures are so pretty!
  17. Chrystal @ Happy Mothering says
    This looks delicious - I miss eggs!
    • Ellen Christian says
      We always have so many eggs.  Can you not eat them?
      • Chrystal @ Happy Mothering says
        I have been intolerant to egg whites for about a year now. I'm hoping once our chickens start laying eggs, I'll be able to eat them since I'll be able to control what the chickens are eating.
  18. I'm hopping over from your What's Cooking Wednesday. I saw you posted this the other day and pinned it then. I planted asparagus a couple year ago, so this is the first year I can actually use it and can't wait to try out some new recipes!! :-)
  19. Ashley Whipple says
    That looks divine! I am pinning for sure. Yummy!
