Leek, Goat Cheese and Chicken Apple Sausage Quiche

Nov 2, 2019 | Breakfast

This is my go-to quiche recipe. My husband and son love it and if I omit the chicken apple sausage, my vegetarian daughter eats it up too. It’s so quick and simple yet tastes so rich and creamy—thanks to the yummy goat cheese. It’s a nice savory breakfast to start your day. This quiche, like all quiches, also works well for brunch paired with mixed greens—it’s very filling.

Let’s talk crust. Sometimes I don’t use a crust. I just spray a glass pie dish with non-stick coconut oil spray and drop all the ingredients in. I obviously need to add more liquid (eggs and half-and-half). If you prefer no crust, do the same. Depending on the size/depth of your pie dish, add one beaten egg plus 1/4 cup of half-n-half at a time until full. When I do use a crust, I either use a frozen natural ingredient brand in a metal pie dish or refrigerated crust in my glass pie dish. Do what you prefer. Enjoy!
