Chicken Spinach Quiche

Now that Frog Prince and I are having brunch together after church on Sunday mornings, I've been looking for "heartier" breakfast recipes.  Since it's usually 11ish before we eat brunch, I like to have lots of veggies packed into our mid-day meal.

This recipe caught my eye because it used red peppers and spinach, which are two of our favorites!

I added in mushrooms and used some chicken sausages we had in our fridge, reduced the amount of eggs, and used extra sharp cheddar cheese in place of the recommended mozzarella.

We'll certainly be making this again!

Chicken Sausage Spinach Mushroom Quiche - Adapted from Easy to Be Gluten Free

1 medium red pepper, diced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 C fresh spinach, stems removed
4 eggs
1/3 C milk
2 spinach and asiago chicken sausages
3/4 C extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 T minced onion
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Begin by sauteing slices of the chicken sausage until lightly browned and cooked through.

Then, add in the mushrooms, onion and peppers.  Saute until tender.

Meanwhile, mix together the eggs and milk in a medium-sized bowl.  Stir in salt and pepper.

Then, add the spinach and shredded cheddar cheese to the bowl with the milk/egg mixture.

When the meat and veggies are ready, carefully pour these into the spinach, cheese, milk mixture.

Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate.

Look at how colorful this one is! Oh, I love colorful foods.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, until center is set.  Mine took 32 minutes.

Allow the dish to sit for 5 minutes before cutting to serve.

  1. Sno, This looks so great, healthy and hearty. A nice tradition having brunch together after church.

  2. Yum. This looks similar to a frittata that I make. What's the diff between a quiche and a frittata, I wonder?

  3. this looks amazing! i wish I had a bite right now!

    Let me know if you try the zucchini muffins!

  4. S, that looks amazing! I've never tried to make quiche before, but it looks really easy and versatile.

  5. How good does this look! I'll definitely be trying this, most likely for Brinner (Breakfast for dinner). I may be the only one eating it but more for me!

  6. That's a crust-less quiche, which makes it a lot less time-consuming. I was eyeing that dish earlier in the week and I daresay that will make an appearance in the Wily Jeneric house next week.

  7. This looks so yummy and fresh! I love quiche!

  8. Once again this week, we're on a similar wavelength. I've got a quiche recipe posting tomorrow. I love how pretty and colorful yours is!

  9. I am so very jealous that your husband will eat all of those veggies! This looks like my husband's worst nightmare, but a recipe that I would absolutely love! I'm actually thinking it would be perfect for a brunch I'm planning the weekend of my childrens' b-day party!

  10. Don't frittatas have pasta in them?
    That looks amazing, especially with that sausage in it! I am going to have to try this one!

  11. Ok I am sooo hungry now! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my new Mud Room/Hallway thing...I was nervous that the bench wouldn't fit and it would be too tight to walk by but it's actually fine! We rarely use that little hall but there is plenty of room to walk by! I think you should totally do it--it was really easy! Thanks from your newest follower!

  12. Where do you get your chicken sausage?

  13. Oh wow, this looks sooo good!! :) I'm with Rachel above...I can't believe Frog Prince eats all these veggies!

  14. Delicious! Quiche is always a wonderful brunch option - and great for guests too!

  15. This looks delicious. I love all the veggies in it. Thanks for the recipe!

  16. This looks delicious! I will definitely try this one.

  17. @Sheryl

    These Chicken Sausages are from Sam's Club -- they are their brand; GF chicken sausages. These were spinach and asiago cheese.

  18. Yum! I think I could have this for supper, not just brunch!

  19. That looks simply lovely. I wouldn't mind a slice of it for breakfast right now!!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
