This is an easy and tasty quiche that your family will love.
My family likes eggs, likes sausage, likes asiago cheese, likes spinach (well, tolerates spinach is more accurate) and likes ‘brinners’ (breakfast for dinner). I like easy one-dish meals with my protein and veggies, so this was perfect for a quick mid-week dinner.
This was my first time using a pre-made pie crust. Yes, really! It did the job and I would use it again in a pinch. However, I really do prefer homemade crusts. Khrista from Ezebreezy has a great pie crust recipe if you need one. And if you don’t have a quiche dish, I highly recommend the one I have or one like it with the fluted edges. It’s made by Polish Pottery. The patterns are beautiful and saturated with color. No two are identical because they are hand painted. Not only are they lovely to look at, they are really nice for quiches (so far no spillovers) and fantastic for pies too – double or single crust. The fluted edge makes even the ugliest crust look amazing with little effort. Believe me. I have had my fair share of ugly crusts and this dish saved me from throwing them out.
Now on to the quiche…this is definitely a recipe that I will keep for a quick and easy weekday dinner. It’s perfect for lazy Sundays and Holiday brunches too.
Chopped Onion, Grated Asiago Cheese and Chopped Spinach all ready in the crust.
Next up…adding the sausage.
Hank is wishing I would drop some food. 🙂
Pouring in the egg and cream mixture.
Setting aside for a few minutes.
Don’t skimp on the milk fat. That helps to keep it light and fluffy.
