Crustless Turkey Sausage Quiche

Pin It

Okay, show of hands...who here loves breakfast {raising hand}?! I am such a fan of this very important first meal of the day, whether I'm eating something as simple as a croissant or a delicious stack of pancakes. Of course, breakfast meals don't always have to be eaten in the morning. A few times a month, we like to switch it up and have breakfast for dinner. After all, a nice plate of eggs, sausage, and toast can be a delicious way to enjoy that last meal of the day.






I usually prefer turkey bacon over sausage, but I recently came across Jennie-O All Natural Turkey Sausage. We are no stranger to Jennie-O products, but this was honestly the first time that we've had the opportunity to try their sausage. Not only does it taste good, but it's very lean and contains less fat than regular pork sausage. When I fried some up in a pan, there was barely any grease left, which was a nice surprise–and with only five ingredients, "turkey, salt, spices, sugar, and rosemary extract," you really can't go wrong.

Rather than whip up a simple plate of eggs and sausage, I wanted to try the turkey sausage in my original crustless quiche recipe. Typically, I like to add different types of veggies like spinach or mushrooms–but not this time. I decided to keep things simple the first time around by substituting the sausage for veggies. Let me tell you, the entire thing was devoured in a matter of minutes.

For those who prefer a vegetarian version, you can check out my Crustless Spinach Quiche. If you are more of a meat eater, than you will definitely want to try the recipe, below, which is simply a variation using only turkey sausage. Want to take it an extra step further? Why not use both and make it a Spinach Turkey Sausage Quiche? Seriously, the possibilities are endless, since this recipe is so versatile!





CRUSTLESS TURKEY SAUSAGE QUICHE


 Print Recipe




INGREDIENTS:
  • 8 large eggs (if you have a deep pie dish, you could use up to 10 eggs)
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 16 ounces of turkey sausage (like Jennie-O's All Natural Turkey Sausage)


DIRECTIONS:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Lightly grease a frying pan and cook turkey sausage until it is completely browned
  • Add eggs and pepper to a large bowl and beat everything together
  • Stir shredded cheese and cooked turkey sausage into the egg mixture, making sure everything is evenly mixed
  • Pour the entire mixture into a greased 9 inch pie pan
  • Bake for about 30 minutes until eggs are set (there may be a little browning on top)



*This recipe is inspired by my original spinach quiche recipe that can be found here. There are a few variations to accommodate the sausage into the mix (like omitting the salt). You could also switch things up by adding in spinach, onions, or other veggies of your choice. If you do decide to use spinach, be sure to read my notes in the original recipe to prevent excess liquid after baking.


Enjoy!

Looks yummy Kelly. Should it be eaten alone, or does it go with something else?
Good to be here after a long while. I trust you are doing great.
Have a super blessed day!

Hi Ugochi! Yes, it has been quite a while! I'm doing great. Thank you. I hope things are great for you, as well. Don't be a stranger...please come back and visit! :-)

As for the quiche, you can eat this alone or add a side of your choice. I have done toast as a side in the morning and a small salad if I make it for dinner. It's all really a preference thing. I hope this helps!

That looks delicious! I didn't know they had that kind of turkey sausage. It's great that there was no grease left behind.

This sausage is so lean, I didn't even have to drain any excess grease, which was really nice. :-)
