Spinach & Sausage Quiche
|Uncooked gluten-free quiche|
|Cooked gluten-free quiche|
(This recipe can be made with a regular pie crust for those not eating gluten free)
1 Gluten-Free Pie Crust (I used Wholly gluten free frozen pie crust)
4 Eggs, whisked
½ c Half & Half
Red Pepper, chopped
Breakfast Sausage, cooked
Fresh Spinach, chopped
Cheese, shredded (I used cheddar cheese)
Preheat oven to 350°. Cook the breakfast sausage in a skillet or sauce pan. (I bought local medium breakfast sausage so I didn’t need to add any spices.)
Thaw out the pie crust for 10 minutes.
Whisk 4 eggs in a medium sized bowl. Pour half & half into the whisked eggs.
Chop red peppers, onion and spinach. (I used a ¼ red pepper and ¼ onion chopped small. About 10 spinach leaves chopped or as much as desired.) In a small sauce pan, add a little olive oil to just coat the bottom. Put onions and peppers in sauce pan and sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder on the onions and peppers in the pan. Once cooked, add the cooked onions and peppers to the egg and half & half mixture.
Now add the cheese to the mixture. (I used about ¾ c shredded from the block of cheddar cheese.) Add salt and pepper to taste and stir together all the ingredients.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust. (I did not cook the crust before baking the quiche.)
Place a thin strip of aluminum foil around the edges. This will prevent it from burning.
Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 1 hour. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
