Spinach and Sausage Quiche

This Spinach and Sausage Quiche is quick and easy thanks to a little help from Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust! I filled mine with spinach and sweet Italian sausage, but feel free to customize this recipe to your own liking!

 Sausage and Spinach Quiche: easy shortcut recipe that will impress your family and friends at breakfast!

I don’t make quiche very often. In my mind, it’s a “fancy” breakfast.

If that’s in your mind too, I’m here to break that thought. Right now.

Sausage and Spinach Quiche: easy shortcut recipe that will impress your family and friends at breakfast!

Today’s recipe is so easy. Easy enough that you can leave the recipe printed on the counter, and even your husband and kids can make it. For you. For Mother’s Day.

You can even help them out by browning the sausage ahead of time. Or skip the sausage all together and just toss in some fresh mushrooms instead.

I would have used mushrooms, but my family may have revolted. I failed as a mother. As a parent. My kids hate mushrooms.

I’m hoping one or more of them will change their views as they become older, but it’s looking dismal. Big thanks to my mushroom hating husband on this one, they “inherited” his genes.

But, for Mother’s Day, I think I can ask for mushroom quiche, mushroom soup, mushroom pizza. You name it, I should get it. After all, I’ve omitted mushrooms from much of my diet thanks to the scowls and groans when I do have them in the house.

Let’s get back to the quiche….

Sausage and Spinach Quiche: easy shortcut recipe that will impress your family and friends at breakfast!

This basic recipe is very versatile. Add cooked bacon. Add green peppers and onion. Take out the spinach and add asparagus. Take out the monterey jack cheese and add parmesan cheese. Or goat cheese.

Seriously guys. It’s easy.

Oh, and one more thing. I used a refrigerated pie crust. Unroll, place in pie plate. And DONE. You can also swap that out and use homemade pie crust. Or puff pastry.

I know. You’re welcome. I’m about to go swap out the laundry. Not as fun as swapping ingredients in this quiche. Clearly.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Preparing Thoughts
    Hand out that together with croissants and seasonal fresh fruits. This approach recipe ingredients can even be adjusted for making very small tart quiches for appetizers.

  2. Spinach and sausage is one my favorite combos, and I love using Pillsbury pie crusts. (I’m far too weary to make my own!) Love this recipe, Aimee, and your photos look great!

  3. I have sausage in the fridge, just waiting for an idea, but I wondered if you can use frozen spinach?

    1. You would have to make sure it’s thawed and you would have to REALLY squeeze the heck out of it. Otherwise you can end up with a runny quiche from the excess water.

  4. I feel like I always forget about quiche because it is totally a fancy breakfast. And it seems like so much work, but now….NOW there are so many quiche possibilities! THANK YOU AIMEE, FOR OPENING MY EYES TO WHOLE NEW BREAKFAST PERFECTION!

  5. This looks like a perfect quiche! What a great flavor combination, too. You definitely can’t go wrong with spinach and sausage. Pinned!

    1. Too funny, I always think of quiche as a breakfast food, because of the eggs!!! But really it’s great any time of day!

  9. Perfect for Mother’s Day brunch! I love spinach quiche and definitely need to try this recipe soon!
