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.

1 pie crust
1 lb. hot italian sausage, browned
1/4 c. chopped sun dried tomatoes

1/2 large white onion, sliced thin
1 small zucchini, sliced
2 c. gruyere cheese
6 eggs
3/4 c. milk
3 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cook pie shell for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
Brown sausage and drain fat. Set aside. Next, add olive oil to a pan and sauté onions and zucchini for 5- 7 minutes. Add in the kale and sun-dried tomatoes and cook until the kale is slightly wilted. Remove from heat and stir in cooked sausage. In a separate bowl whisk 6 eggs together with flour, milk, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir in sausage mixture until combined. Lastly, stir in cheese. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake at 350 degreed for 30-40 minutes.

    I love quiche! However, I never knew it was easy to make. Did you make the pie crust from scratch or go with premade?

    Quiche is my favorite! I just wish Theo was as much of a fan as B is!

    I made a couple of these the other night and they were SO good! I ate a piece for lunch every day and am wishing I still had leftovers!

    Oh I like how you are slipping the power kale in there! I mean anything with gruyere cheese in it should be fantastic in my books!

    Love quiche recipes! They are so great (especially when you’re just cooking for 1 person, hello leftovers) and easy to bust out!
