Sausage Quiche



You may already know that the biggest difference between quiche, pie, and frittata is pastry crust. With a dinner or dessert pie, the filling is fully enclosed inside a crusty pie shell, quiche filling is only covered by pastry crust on the bottom and sides, and for a frittata recipe, there’s no pie crust. But what is it called when your quiche recipe doesn’t have pie crust? Easy. It’s called crustless quiche…

One of the main draws of a quiche is the crunchy, crusty pastry shell. But there are good reasons for making a crustless quiche. Namely, when you’re cooking for a large group, like a party or big family gathering, you may want to get all of your prep work out of the way the day before. While the egg, cheese, and sausage quiche custard are perfectly fine sitting overnight (in the refrigerator, of course!), the pie crust can absorb liquid from the filling and get soggy. So rather than risk serving a squishy pie crust, just make a crustless quiche instead.

This quiche recipe has a rich, smoky flavor, which comes from using Jimmy Dean Regular Premium Pork Sausage. Because the meat and spices are tasty but mild, it’s a good choice when cooking for a big group because some people don’t have a tolerance for hot or spicy foods. But if you’re craving a dish with some heat, consider making a second sausage quiche recipe — this one with Jimmy Dean Hot Premium Pork Sausage or Jimmy Dean Italian Sausage.
