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
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.
Whisk egg mixture. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and 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.
Rest and serve. Remove the quiche from the oven and let rest for a minute or so. Then slice and serve.
I know, it sure is hard to wait to slice into this cheesy delicious quiche!
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.
Juice, coffee, sweet tea, or apple cider
If you have any leftover quiche or quiche that you’ve made ahead, you can store it in the refrigerator or freeze it.
Cool. Make sure the quiche has completely cooled in both instances.
To refrigerate: Wrap the completely cooled quiche very well or transfer it to an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
To freeze: Wrap cooled quiche well and place in a freezer-safe, airtight container for up to 2 months. When ready to eat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat.
To reheat: Reheat to the desired temperature in the microwave or a 350-degree oven.
When To Serve This Quiche?
I enjoy serving this anytime, for any meal as I mentioned, but it really is a great food to make ahead anytime you want for a special breakfast or brunch. I’ve served this for holidays and weekends with just my family or when we have guests. It’s perfect to serve at a brunch party, such as a shower. Add one of the fresh sides listed previously for a meal everyone always loves!

Could you use Biscuit mix for crust?
I have not used Biscuit mix to make the crust for this, Cheryl. You can also use a deep dish pie crust if you want, too.
Thank you. Enjoy your recipes and personal story about each.
I also have your cookbook. Very good
Thanks, Cheryl. I hope you enjoy the cookbook.
I’m guessing buttermilk would work instead of heavy cream. Would you recommend a 1:1 substitute? Equal parts buttermilk and heavy cream (totalling the 1 1/2 cups?)
I’ll find out anyway, since I’m definitely making this weekend.
I’ve never made this quiche with buttermilk, Todd, so I can’t tell you how it would turn out. It you make it that way, let me know how you liked it.
