  4. Heat a 10-inch oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.

  5. Spray the skillet with nonstick spray or lightly grease with olive oil or butter. Add the sausage, onion, and garlic.

  6. Stirring frequently, cook for 5 minutes or until the sausage is a little browned.

Recipe Notes

  • A skillet larger in size will yield a thinner quiche.
  • This quiche makes great leftovers. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Freezing Instructions: The baked quiche freezes well, up to 2 months. Thaw overnight and bake at 350 degrees F to warm up for 20 minutes, give or take.
  • Milk: This recipe tested with both skim milk and unsweetened plain almond milk. Any milk will be okay.
  • Cheese: Use preferred kind of cheese. Cheddar is great too. If not watching the calories too much, increase to about ¾ to 1 full cup.
  • Sausage: Trader Joe’s chicken apple sausage links are 120 calories each. If using another kind, the calorie count in the quiche may change.
  • No oven-proof skillet? No problem. Prepare the recipe through steps 4 to 8 in any frying pan or large pot. Then pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch pie or cake pan. Bake as directed in step 9.
