Cheese and Sausage Quiche


Cheese and Sausage QuicheAfter eating through a delicious spread of breakfast slab pie, chocolate chip bread, and fresh fruit on Easter, I’ve determined there’s no better meal than brunch. Can you ever go wrong with home-cooked breakfast dishes, no matter the time of day?! Even the most casual of brunches, however, require a bit of prep; my go-to recipe is a simple quiche, complete with seasonal vegetables that complement the buttery crust. Most quiche recipes share a similar foundation, but the fun comes with the “mix-ins,” like the sausage, red peppers, and cheese here. It’s tasty {I wouldn’t share it otherwise}, but it’s healthy too. If you’re anything like me, low-calorie dishes are welcome in the presence of mini Cadbury eggs :) Save this recipe for your next brunch, prep for a week’s worth of breakfasts, or bring it to a casual gathering of friends – it’s fit for any occasion!

Cheese and Sausage Quiche Adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup milk {I used skim.}
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheese {cheddar, mozzarella, you choose!}
  • 2 cooked sausage links {I used chicken sausage.}
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove roasted garlic, chopped
  • 1 prepared 9-inch pie crust
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

to make

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, pepper, and cheese until combined.
  3. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage to the pan and break apart with a wooden spoon until it starts to brown, about five minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Once the sausage has cooled, combine it, the red pepper, the yellow onion, and the garlic with the egg mixture. Set aside.
  5. Place the pie crust in a nine-inch pie dish. Pour the egg mixture into the crust, and sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake the quiche for thirty-five to forty-five minutes, or until the filling is set. Let it cool in the dish before removing to cool completely on the wire rack. Enjoy!

Have a terrific day!
