Asparagus and Bacon Quiche

The traditional French quiche is a rustic dish, eaten year-round in most regions of France. It’s a particular favorite in French bistros across Paris, where a generous wedge is accompanied by a green salad and a glass of red wine, and almost every local bakery will have several types available as part of the typical lunch offerings.
