Easy Deep Dish Quiche

A little more than a year ago I fell in love with frittatas. I began making them regularly after Chase was born because they are an easy and filling breakfast I can prepare ahead of time and reheat in the morning. Plus, they make it easy to incorporate a lot of veggies into my morning meal in a tasty way. In my obsession with frittatas I somehow forgot about frittatas’ indulgent cousin, the incredibly delicious quiche, until one of my girlfriends made one to share for breakfast the other week.

I can’t believe I let my love for quiche fall to the wayside but thankfully it only took one bite of the flaky crust of a savory, cheesy piece of quiche to remind me of this special breakfast dish.

My friend’s quiche recipe came from The Kurtz Corner blog and was absolutely incredible. I instantly asked her to send the recipe my way, determined to make it again as soon as possible. I revamped it a little bit to make it slightly less heavy, though it still tastes every bit as rich and delicious.

Easy Breakfast Quiche

Quiche by nature is not exactly the world’s healthiest breakfast option but it is a dish worthy of a special occasion brunch or breakfast. With the holidays on the horizon, keep this one in your back pocket to use when you have friends or relatives in town and want an easy, savory breakfast dish to share. I am also planning to make this quiche again this weekend as a hostess gift to give to friends who are hosting a chili cook-off on Saturday. I figured bringing breakfast for the morning after their party would be a welcomed treat!

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 yellow onion, minced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Whisk the eggs together. Add whole milk, salt, pepper and onion powder.
  3. In the bottom of a deep-dish pie crust, sprinkle half of the chopped spinach. Top with half of the cooked sausage, half of the minced onion and half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers again, beginning with the rest of the spinach, followed by the sausage, onion and cheese.

  5. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Enjoy!

Note: You may substitute heavy cream for the whole milk for a thicker quiche. (Higher fat content in the dairy will yield a firmer quiche.) Cooking time may be slightly reduced.

    This recipe looks great!! Thanks for sharing! As a student and someone who doesn’t really love cooking, eggs for dinner are quite a frequent tradition for me, and quiche is a great way to mix it up! 😀

        I love quiche! This quiche recipe was very easy and so….good! I changed the ingredients from spinach to russet potato cubes, only because I didn’t have any spinach. I also added 1t. smoked paprika. I’m not sure if the Colorado altitude had anything to do with this but I had to cook my quiche about 20 minutes longer. Thanks You!

    My husband has been on a huge quiche kick lately (requesting I make it for dinner almost every week!) so I made yours tonight and he (and I!) gave it two thumbs up!
