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.

My husband and I both loved this quiche. I doubled everything and made two. Froze one for
another time. It can be frozen right?
You can freeze it, yes. I'm glad you're enjoying it!
I made this today using Jimmy Dean frozen turkey sausage crumbles. I heated them with some scallions and peppers before adding to the pie shell. It was delicious!!
Fantastic. We added sliced mushrooms and diced red, yellow and orange pepper instead of green.
Use chopped white onion instead of the scallions. Had to use 1 T of regular yellow mustard.
So very good and delicious!
Can I mix this up night before and bake next morning and the crust will not be soggy?
I wouldn't recommend it. You could prep everything and have it ready to pour into the pie shell.
Can i use heavy cream and ground sausage?
You can use heavy cream. This recipes does use ground sausage, yes.
It is simple and easy, but best of all it is GREAT to eat.
Thanks so much!
Added some veggies but rest the same. I believe this was the best quiche I have ever made. Wish it would let me add my photo.
Thanks so much!
I just wanted to see if I could make this as crustless quiche?
Let me know!
Most quiche recipes can be made without a crust and this one is no different.
Absolutely delicious! I used this with a oat crust and it turned out great. Thank you!
Super easy to make and delicious! I didn’t have cream or half and half. Worked perfectly fine with 2% milk. Even the little grandkids loved it!
Hi so you think I can use the refrigerated pie crust? Deep dish?
As long as it's in a deep dish pie pan, sure!
I am wanting to revamp and old sausage quiche I made for years. Just bored with it! This looks good. I will try a little nutmeg and wondered about using hashbrowns as I prefer crust less quiches. How would you incorporate them into your recipe? Would you have to brown the hashbrowns at all?
Perhaps this recipe will help it has a hash brown crust.
This was delicious! My first time making a quiche and for the most part it went well! My crust must be smaller than the one in the paranthesis. I don't recommend the Great Value Traditional Crust for this recipe because my filling overflowed which turned into a smokey mess! I will definitely go for deep dish crust next time! Thanks for the recipe!
Hi Brianna, oh dear yes you need a deep dish for this, or any, of my quiche recipes. I'm so glad you loved it, thanks!
It was so good! Our friends spent the whole meal trying to guess the “secret ingredient!” Will definitely be making again!
I'm glad you enjoyed it, thanks!
Hi, I'm going to make this tonight, but I have a question . do you think that there is enough grease from the sausage to make gravy ? We love sausage gravy !!
Hi Susie, it really depends on the brand of sausage. Jimmy Dean is so lean I often have to add it. So, it just depends.
How many people does this specific recipe feed?
You'll get 8 servings from this recipe.
Why would you want to make gravy? This is a quick recipe.
I love quiche. I love eggs and “breakfast “ at any time of day. This recipe is wonderful! Not a lot of ingredients that are not staples in the house anyway, and easy prep are essential to me for to keep it as a “go to” recipe to use time after time. I always tweak my cooking and baking, and the only thing I added was some nutmeg. I’ll be sharing this to family and friends!
Thanks so much!
I tried it and enjoyed it very much. I am making it again this week.
Wonderful, thanks so much!
Can you use 2 regular pie crusts instead of one deep dish?
You may be able to stretch this into 2 quiche but they would be thin. If you try it, let us know how it goes.
I have been looking for a great sausage quiche recipe for some time now and this was amazing!
I'm so happy you loved it, thanks!
This is the easiest and best quiche we’ve tasted. Made is last Sunday and we had overnight guests the next week so made it again and it was a big hit!
Thanks so much!
Delicious quiche! I will definitely be making it again, and again. I didn’t have any green onions so added a handful of fresh spinach and some sautéed mushrooms. Everyone loved it. Normally I make my own crust but there are times when I am pressed for time and need a frozen one. Thank you for the heads up on the Harris Teeter deep dish crust.
I'm so happy you loved this, thanks!
