Crustless Sausage and Cheese Quiche

If you’re looking for a hearty breakfast or dinner option, you’ll need to make my Low-Carb Sausage and Cheese Quiche!!!

Summertime is a slower time on the farm for me. Also, our kids are home on break from school which means I’m cooking even more than usual. At some point, even I run through all my cold lunch ideas!

Luckily, hungry teenagers make great recipe critics!

I’ve also been trying to cut the processed foods and excess carbs out of my diet. Hence, the low carb part. While we’ve been loving Air Fryer Italian Sausage and Peppers, we also need a low carb breakfast!

Why I love to make this crustless sausage quiche:

  1. It’s easy to make.
  2. It’s a stick-to-your-ribs in a good kinda way, so you’ll stay full for a while. But not in a food coma, I need a nap sort of way.
  3. It makes the house smell amazing!!
  4. It has cheese.
  5. It can be field friendly, for my farmer friends. Put a slice between toast or on a biscuit and your farmers can keep on driving while enjoying a delicious meal.
  6. Did I mention it has cheese???
  7. You can make it as a freezer meal. Say what??? Yes! You can brown the sausage, let it cool, and throw all the ingredients into a gallon ziplock bag. Freezer it for later. Pull it out, throw it in a dish, and viola! you have breakfast. Or dinner. Or lunch.
  8. It’s low in carbs, if that’s your sort of thing. It is for me!
  9.  It’s made of real food ingredients! Nothing weird goin’ on here…

How to make this sausage and egg bake:

All you have to do is brown some sausage in an oven-proof pan, add the remaining ingredients, and let this baby bake! It’s very hands off.

Like I said before, this is a pretty hearty meal. If you prefer a lower fat version, by all means use turkey sausage or even turkey Italian sausage!

I like to make this in my favorite Lodge cast iron skillet. I swear, things taste better when they’re cooked in cast iron!

Even better, crustless sausage and cheese quiche can be made as a freezer meal! Make one for a meal and freezer another to cook another day.

Trust me on this, freezer meals will make busy night dinners so much simpler! Simple, good. Not so simple, not too good.

This is in the oven right now! I'm super excited to try it. I am another person who replaced the half and half with heavy cream for the low-carb lifestyle. I added red pepper flakes and omitted onions due to family FODMAP restrictions. Used cheddar and asiago cheeses for a bit of extra kick.
