Why You’ll Love This Recipe

How to Make Sausage Cheddar Quiche Recipe

You only need a few simple ingredients and 30 minutes. Here’s how I make it.

Ingredients You’ll Need for this Recipe 

Butter – You’ll want to let the butter soften prior to use so that you can easily spread it around the sides and bottom of the skillet you’ll use to bake the quiche. 

Biscuit Dough Crust – Self-rising flour and heavy cream produce a light, tender, and flaky biscuit crust. If you choose, you can use a store-bought deep pie crust, but I hope you will try the biscuit crust as it is absolutely delicious and so easy!

Filling – Ground breakfast sausage, shredded cheddar cheese, large eggs, milk, salt, and pepper

Step-by-Step Instructions

Preheat and Prep. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare the skillet by spreading the softened butter around the inside of a 12-inch, medium size skillet. Set the skillet aside. 

Mix dough. Mix the ingredients for the two-ingredient cream biscuit recipe as the crust for this quiche. It’s a bit quicker to make than a pie crust. You can’t get much simpler than two ingredients for this easy and delicious crust! (You can substitute a deep frozen pie crust, but the biscuit crust is something special!)

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

Brown the sausage. In another medium skillet, crumble the ground sausage into it and brown over medium heat until done, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Use a slotted spoon to remove the browned sausage and sprinkle it on top of the biscuit dough. Then, top the sausage with shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake. Pop it into the oven to bake until the egg mixture has set and cooked through, and the quiche reaches a golden brown on top. About 20 minutes.

How to Serve Sausage Cheddar Cheese Quiche

This quiche is the centerpiece of the meal and doesn’t require a lot to serve with it. But it does make a beautiful presentation when served with some simple sides or delicious baked goods.

Storage Instructions 

If you have any leftover quiche or quiche that you’ve made ahead, you can store it in the refrigerator or freeze it.

    1. 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

    Thanks!

    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!

  5. 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 ?

    1. Memories of our grandmothers’ food always has a special place, don’t they? I’m happy you are giving this a try. Thanks so much!

    1. 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!

  6. Family favorite called “Impossible Cheeseburger Pie” using hamburger and cooked in a pie tin was doubled (2 pies) for my parents’ 8 kids to devour. I look forward to this trying version.
