Easy Sausage Quiche is Perfect for Dinner
We're huge "breakfast or dinner" fans at our house. Be it a pan of buttermilk biscuits smothered in sausage gravy, a big bowl of cheddar grits topped with bacon and eggs or big stack of buttermilk pancakes dripping with a generous drizzle of maple syrup. We're not picky any of the aforementioned will do.
Easy Sausage Quiche
- Quiche ranks quite high on our list for busy day meals also, and when paired with a sweet fruit salad it can really hit the spot.
- In this recipe, I am purposely keeping the ingredients simple but, feel free to adapt using your favorite cheese, or add some heat with a spicy sausage, if you like.
- It can be made in advance and reheated by the piece, too.
- To reheat a whole quiche in the oven: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lay foil loosely on top and bake for 10-15 minutes just until heated through.
- You can use a different variety of cheese in this recipe using what you have on hand or the flavor your prefer.

I normally put ham in my quiche but this is a delicious option. Thanks for the recipe
Melissa, I have a question. I made a sausage cheese quiche. I used a recipe from another website. I followed the directions to a T and used a 9" deep dish pie crust -Mrs. Smith brand. It called for a 1lb bulk sausage, 2 cups sharp shredded cheese, 3 large eggs and 1 1/2 cups half and half. I could not get all of the mixture in the crust. I read that a deep dish pie crust should be, at least, 2 1/4 inch deep. The pie crust I used couldn't be a "deep dish" since it wouldn't hold all the ingredients. I can't tell you how this quiche will turn out as I am actually cooking it now.
I have a Pillsbury 9" Deep Dish pie crust that looks like the one I used today, so I don't think it would have hold all the ingredients either.
Can you help me out?
Since this isn't my recipe, you would be better off asking the creator of that quiche recipe. I always use deep dish pie shells and they tend to work but I haven't tested the recipe you're referencing. I'd ask them surely they could help.
