Ingredients
  

  • ½ pound bulk breakfast sausage
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 1 pie crust store bought or homemade
  • cup fresh spinach roughly chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley chopped (optional)
  • ½ cup feta cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup half and half or whole milk
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 grinds fresh black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Bake your pie crust empty for 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, cook sausage and onion, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon until fully cooked and browned.
  • Arrange the cooked sausage, spinach, parsley and feta evenly in the partially cooked pie crust.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs, half and half, salt and pepper, and pour this egg mixture into the pie crust. Even it out with a spatula.
  • Bake at 375° for 35 to 40 minutes until the egg is just set.
  • Let stand 5 or 10 minutes, cut into 6 or 8 wedges, and serve.

Notes

  • Don't Over Bake - A quiche needs to be baked until the eggs are just set, so they stay light and fluffy. Ovens vary, so set your timer for 30 to 35 minutes before checking the quiche, then do a few more minutes until it's done. You can insert a knife to check that it comes out clean.
