My sister-law-made this Sausage Quiche for a family breakfast one time and I think I ate 3 pieces. I fell in love with how delicious it was.
I don’t love crust like a lot of quiches have and this was the perfect amount of salty, cheesy, egg goodness. I’m amazed at how light and fluffy it is to eat too.
Cook the sausage and rinse it. I literally rinse it after I’ve cooked it. It gets a lot more of the grease off of the sausage making it a little more healthy. Then, just mix the rest of the stuff together. It’s super easy and it’s a great way to practice cracking eggs.
It takes a while to bake but I’ve even made it the night before and just popped it in the oven the next morning. It holds up really well and it was perfect the next day. It’s great for Christmas morning or any other day. I’ve brought it to breakfast parties with no work to worry about in the morning.
The best part is that the leftovers are just as good. We can’t eat a whole pan in one sitting so we get to enjoy it throughout the week too. It heats up so well in the microwave.
