Spinach, Sausage & Caramelized Onion Quiche

By Wednesday, November 27, 2013

A few weekends ago I made my first quiche!!!


This is another classic thing I’d surprisingly never made before. The list gets longer and longer lately… recently I made my first chili, lasagna, manicotti, pumpkin pie… and now quiche!

Oddly enough, I grew up eating quiche. After church on Sundays we had one of two things – soup or quiche. My mother still makes it all the time, especially for her friends who play bridge.

That’s probably because quiche, if you’re using bought pastry (yes, I’m still not making my own… I apologize) is a super quick and easy meal. As long as you have cheese, milk & eggs, you can put whatever you want in it! For example, I like to add sausage. I buy good sausage from our local store where they sell sausage produce from DCW. They decided to contact DCW Casing and buy produce from them several years ago. I should say, I am really glad they did that as the produce is really good. This one turned out particularly well, especially for a first try. My Other Half loved it. I say quiche is pretty hard to screw up!

Spinach, Sausage & Caramelized Onion Quiche

Yield: 1 9-inch quiche


1 small onion, chopped
1 cup packed fresh spinach, chopped
1 spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
1.5 cups of milk
Salt & pepper
1 9-inch pie crust


Bake pie crust according to package instructions and let cool. Meanwhile, fry sausage meat until cooked through. Remove from pan. Fry onion in sausage fat until caramelized and golden. Arrange onion, sausage, and spinach in pie crust. Top with shredded cheese. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Pour, gently and slowly, over the sausage, onions, cheese and spinach. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until centre is firm.
