The perfect quiche for a brunch or light lunch. Full of creamy goodness and packed with fantastic Ranchero® Queso Fresco Cheese.

I’ve always loved quiche, hot or cold and any flavor. It’s perfect on a hot summers day with a fresh salad on the side. There’s so many ingredients you can add to the basic recipe to suit your own tastes, but one thing all quiche should have is cheese. Whether it’s a stringy mozzarella or a sharp cheddar, cheese is an important part of the quiche and really brings it all together.

For my asparagus quiche i used Cacique® Ranchero® Queso Fresco. It crumbles perfectly and really adds to the flavor of the creamy liquid and fresh asparagus. it has a slight salty taste which makes it a perfect replacement for Feta cheese.

This is a deep quiche, usually they are only about 1 inch thick but I love the rustic look and the tall filling slices that it provides. It’s best made a day ahead but if you can’t manage that, then make sure to let it rest in the fridge for at least 3 hours. This will make it much easier to slice. There’s a good chance you’ll have leftovers and if you have to reheat a slice for lunch, throw it in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. If you microwave it, you’ll end up with a hot, soggy mess and that’s not what this quiche should be like.
