Sausage Spinach Quiche

I went on a cooking spree the other afternoon. I should’ve been doing paperwork but cooking is much more fun than paperwork.

I’m a total procrastinator, especially when it comes to paperwork. I suppose there is a certain satisfaction to having my paperwork caught up but good food definitely wins every time.

Sausage Spinach & Onions for Quiche

For this quiche, I cooked up some breakfast sausage, onions, garlic and baby spinach. Quiche is easy to sub in your favorite ingredients and a great way to use up those bits of veggies or leftovers that you have in the fridge. If you are in the market for a new non-stick skillet, this one is pretty awesome!

An easy shortcut with refrigerated pie crust makes this quiche come together really easily.

The crust is baked for a few minutes while you prepare the other ingredients. This ensures the crust is flaky and not soggy.

Ingredients for Sausage Spinach Quiche

Add in the sautéed onions, garlic, spinach, cooked sausage and grated cheese and mix until well combined. I used smoked gouda but just use what you have on hand. I have a thing for smoked cheese, I can’t ever get enough of it.

Sausage Spinach Quiche Recipe Ready for the Oven

Pour it all into the pie crust and it bakes for about an hour.  I know that is a long time to wait but let me tell you, it is totally worth the wait.  Quiche is the perfect make ahead dish. You can eat it straight out of the oven, at room temperature and it also reheats really well after refrigerating.

It comes out of the oven smelling like heaven and looks so gorgeous, making it perfect for entertaining or for a weekend brunch. I just love how all of the flavors come together.

I make quiche for dinner more often than for brunch or breakfast. We enjoy breakfast for dinner at least once a week. It is ideal for those busy days when I forget to make a dinner plan.

These Stuffed Waffles are filled with sausage and cheese and are another breakfast favorite that we enjoy for any meal of the day.

See, quiche is really as easy as pie, nothing to be intimidated about.  Grab a gorgeous pie plate, gather up some eggs, cheese and your favorite veggies and meat is totally optional (well not really at my house) and a refrigerated pie crust and make a quiche! You will be glad you did!

We love eggs for any meal of the day and I’ve been loving these cheesy Baked Eggs! What’s your favorite way to enjoy eggs?

    Yummy Yummy! It looks so delicious, I see your many posts all are great. Already I bookmark this site for the future reference. Your all recipes so delicious no doubt about it.
    Thank you for the nice post.

    1. Hi Glynn,
      I think it could. You will might have to adjust the cooking time. I think it would cook faster without the crust. Let me know how it turns out if you try it.

  2. Hi Milsa
    Trying your recipe for 2nd time. Although I am a seasoned cook I seem to wind up with too much filling. I am using a store bought deep dish pie crust. Any tips.😊😊😊Thank you

    1. Hi Diane,
      I am using a regular pie plate and a Pillsbury crust, so I’m not sure. You might try using two smaller crusts and maybe check it about 10 minutes early to make sure it doesn’t over bake.

        1. I have made this a couple time and always have too much. I made about 3/4 of the sausage this time and instead of pouring it in the pie dish, i spooned it in to get the most meat and fillings, then added however much extra egg I could before it was too full. I’ve started adding mushrooms to the recipe too! Good every tim

  3. Sausage and spinach quiche was delicious. I used 4 eggs, a pinch of nutmeg and sharp cheddar & mozzarella cheese. Smoked cheese sounds good, will try that next time!

  4. This blew my socks off. I was able to fill two normal pie crusts and it was just simply amazing. Thank you so much for helping me make dinner a success!

    I used vegan sausage, frozen spinach (with extra chopping) and sharp cheddar, and it turned out great. Maybe could have used a bit more salt, but that might have been because of the sausage. My husband even encouraged me to make and freeze another one with the leftover sausage and spinach.
