How To Make Sausage Asparagus Quiche
Meanwhile in a large skillet over medium/high heat, add Sausage and sauté just until cooked through (5 mins). Add diced onion and sauté 5 min or until golden and sausage is starting to brown. Remove from heat and let cool while making egg mixture.
In a large mixing bowl, combine 5 eggs, 1½ cups half and half, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp black pepper, ¼ tsp garlic powder, and 2 tsp TABASCO® Sauce** then whisk together until combined. Stir in 1 cup cheese, 2 Tbsp parsley, 1 Tbsp dill and the cooked sausage mixture. Pour mixture over prepared pie crust.
Arrange sliced asparagus pieces over the top and bake uncovered at 350˚F for 55 to 60 minutes or until the center is set and no longer wobbles when you give the pan a jolt.
**Give your TABASCO® Sauce a good shake before using to to get the perfect blend of flavor and spice.
