When we talk about side dishes we often only really consider our lunch and dinners. However the most important meal of the day, breakfast, also need something to accompany its eggs. From bacon to cut tomatoes, there are so many breakfast side dish options out there.

This asparagus quiche, a delicious bacon, egg and veggie bake, is perfect not only for a filling breakfast, but also makes a hearty dinner as well.

Our family adores breakfast for dinner but the kids always want waffles with a side of hash browns. Me?

I need some protein and a side of vegetables or you will have to roll me into bed. If you are looking for a breakfast side dish recipe that meets your menu needs, this asparagus quiche recipe is amazing for that.

Also I won’t judge if you load up on more bacon than I did. 

Asparagus Quiche

  • 6 strips bacon, cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 cup asparagus, cut into 1/4″ pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

Recipe Notes: 

I didn’t drain the bacon grease but you certainly can. I maybe should have, but it tasted great, it was just bubbling grease around the edges when I pulled it from the oven. Drain, return bacon and asparagus to pan. You can transfer to a baking dish if you don’t have an ovenproof or cast iron pan.

I’d make sure it’s greased so the eggs do not stick cause that does happen often when you work with eggs.

This almost makes a little crust on the bottom and it’s good.

Is Quiche Keto Friendly or Low Carb?

In this recipe I use flour to help the quiche stick and rise, so that would likely fall out of most keto recipes. That being said, you can try to substitute with other flour options, I just do not know if the bake would rise in the same way as I haven’t tested it.

My friend Kim created an awesome ranch breakfast quiche that is a low carb quiche recipe and you can check out how she made hers.
