A Valentine’s Day Sausage Quiche!

Are you trying to think of something different and unique to make for your sweetie for Valentine’s Day? How about a sausage quiche?! Now that is different.

I made this dish a few weeks ago for my family and co-workers and I thought it was super easy and tasty. I found the recipe on Food Network from Trisha Yearwood.

Here is her recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage with sage
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 20 grape tomatoes, sliced in half and sprinkled with salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 10 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Two 9-inch unbaked frozen pie shells (set them out to thaw while preparing the other ingredients)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Then remove with a slotted spoon and reserve.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the baking powder, tomatoes and eggs together. Add the cooked sausage and the cheese to the egg mixture and stir together with a large spoon. Add salt and pepper and divide the mixture between both unbaked pie shells. Bake until the filling is set, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook’s Notes: To lighten up this quiche, use turkey sausage and egg substitute.

Garth likes this quiche with cheese tortellini. If you add tortellini, cover with egg or the pasta will burn when the quiche bakes. 

This is how mine turned out…PERFECTION!

Not only would this make a great Valentine’s Day brunch for two, but it is also good for an everyday breakfast, lunch, or dinner. My five year old demolished it and he is a finicky eater.

What I would do differently next time or to make it my own, I would use hot sausage and jalapeno cheese to give it an extra kick.

I am highly recommending this recipe for families on the go because it takes practically no time.
