How to Make Sausage Cheddar Quiche Recipe

To make it, I begin with my two ingredient cream biscuit recipe as the crust. You can’t get much simpler than two ingredients for a delicious crust like this one!

Once you have the dough mixed together, you press the dough into the bottom of a medium skillet and up the sides of the skillet about two inches.

Next, I brown my sausage and add to the biscuit dough. Then, top with the grated cheddar cheese.

  1. This looks good.. I could handle this for an evening meal when want all done quickly as going out or been out.. thank you..

  2. Robyn, I made this last night. I added a touch of onion and it was delicious! Since we are empty nesters, we have plenty left over for Saturday morning brunch. Thanks for sharing another great recipe!

  3. Curious if this could be made the night before. Looks wonderful!

    • Hi Michells,
      I love to make this the night before! I think it turns out best if you go ahead and bake it, cool completely, then refrigerate. Just reheat the next morning when you get ready to serve it. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks! xo

  4. I’m wondering if this work in a glass pie plate since I don’t have an iron skillet. What do you think?
    Thanks!
    Carla

  5. Anything with cheddar sparks my attention, and I must say I never tried any quiche recipe this delicious before. This tastes heavenly! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  6. This breakfast reminds me of childhood. My grandma is from Alabama and my favorite breakfast she made was biscuits and gravy. The combo of biscuits and sausage will always remind me of her. I love your take on classic breakfast food. My kids would love it ?

  7. Can I use GF all purpose flour?

    • Hi Nancy,
      For this recipe, you will need self-rising flour if you make the two-ingredient biscuit recipe for the crust. If you don’t have gluten free self-rinsing flour, you can make it using my recipe for Homemade Self-Rising Flour. Be sure to add a gluten free baking powder to your gluten free all-purpose flour to make it, though. Hope you this helps!

  8. Do you think I could use half and half in the crust instead of heavy cream? This looks delish.
