Do you love quiche? Do you love shrimp? We love quiche…. and shrimp! Do you need a quick dish to put together for Mother’s Day Brunch? This Shrimp & Asparagus Quiche is loaded with four different cheeses! Such a perfect Spring treat when the asparagus is tiny and fresh! It is soooo good! It comes together in 10 minutes and then throw it in the oven!
We are rather addicted to seafood! I could totally eat seafood everyday! Shrimp is low in calories, high in protein, low in fat and carbs. It is has selenium, is high in vitamin B12 and phosphorous, and also contains choline, copper, and iodine. The only problem with them is they contain about half of the cholesterol we should eat per day. I have very low LDL (bad cholesterol) and high HDL (good cholesterol), so I don’t need to worry about that. Thanks, Mom and Dad!
What is your favorite course to serve for Mother’s Day? I love making a brunch! I can do lots of things ahead. Just to mention a few, I love making English muffins, this Banana, Blueberry Quick Bread, a few appetizers like these Cranberry Orange Meatballs, or these Pigs in a Blanket. Then something creamy and hearty, like this Lobster Mac & Cheese! Everything can be done ahead, so on Mother’s Day, I don’t have to kill myself cooking, on the day that is supposed to be about me! Just saying!! 🙂
I don’t ever remember having quiche as a child. People ate differently in the 70’s. I remember eating meat and potato dishes often. My Mother made taco sauce, soups and stews quite a bit. We always had a side salad, every night, no matter what. Oddly enough, we did not eat quiche. I would have remembered eating this Shrimp and Asparagus Quiche, for sure! Both my Mom and Dad love quiche, though, so I’ll be making this for Mother’s Day, this year! If you love Quiche, check out this Chicken & Bacon Quiche! So tasty!!
