This Cornbread and Sausage Quiche is a Southern spin on classic quiche. It's one of those unexpected dishes that are ideal for sharing at a potluck. Cornbread forms the base and when mixed with a rich sausage filled custard and plenty of cheddar cheese, it bakes beautifully golden. After resting, cut into wedges and enjoy with a cup of hot tea or coffee and share it with friends.
Cornbread Quiche Inspired by a Potluck
Potlucks generate a homespun sense of community. They are inherently purposed to highlight the sheer joy of sharing. The sharing of great company, colorful stories, lots of laughs and of course, plenty of good food. At the invitation of Martha White I participated in a virtual potluck in celebration of cornbread in every form imaginable.
Cornbread and Sausage Quiche
No potluck would be complete without homemade bread and in my opinion, there's no wrong time of day to enjoy cornbread. So for my contribution to the party, I developed this recipe for hearty Cornbread and Sausage Quiche. The beauty of this quiche is, it can be served for breakfast or brunch of course but, it's also fitting to be paired with a salad for lunch or supper. Bake and take it over to a new neighbor to welcome them to the neighborhood or share it for a special family get together. There's no wrong time of day to enjoy this mouthwatering dish.
