Italian Christmas Quiche Recipe @pinch

This is one yummy quiche with tons of flavor. The Italian seasoning goes great with the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Chunks of meat and asparagus make this a hearty quiche. It's simple to make and will be a delicious holiday breakfast or brunch. Quiche is a great way to serve something elegant that costs very little and is easy to prepare. I experiment with fillings. This is one experiment that worked.
