Italian Sausage, Kale, Zucchini Quiche

Italian Sausage Quiche

It’s taken me 26 years, but I’m proud to say I made my first quiche. These are so simple to make, but to be honest I’ve never been a huge fan of the dish. I never knew what meal to eat it for and it seemed to only fit in at a bridal or baby shower. On the other hand, B loves a good quiche and when I read the ingredients for this one I had a feeling my opinion would change. Sun dried tomatoes, italian sausage, zucchini and fresh gruyere cheese all come together to make the most delicious treat. I’m hands down a converted quiche fan and plan on making this again and again.
