Easy to Prepare! Quick to Devour!
This scrumptious recipe is one of my favorites since it uses minimal ingredients while still providing enough of protein, a creamy custard, and a flaky crust. The luscious filling in this dish, combined with the crunchy crust, creates a flavor combination that never fails to satisfy! Thus, this easy Sausage Quiche has all of the allure of an omelette, minus the hassle, making it a quick and delectable savory pie.
Why Is It called Quiche?
Guess what!! Quiche means incredibly attractive or completely seductive- which is what this Sausage Quiche is all about! The word ‘quiche’ also comes from the German word ‘Kuchen’ meaning ‘cake.’ Subsequently, the French improved the recipe and dubbed it Lorraine. The Lorraine’s original recipe called for an open pie with a filling of egg, cream custard, and sausage or bacon.
A Perfect Texture for a Perfect Sausage Quiche!
Sausage Quiche is a type of egg pie. But “egg pie” doesn’t exactly scream “delicious,” does it? So, let’s speak about the texture of a flawless quiche, like the one I’m about to show you how to prepare! The ideal quiche is creamy and soft, and beautifully complement the sausages’ texture. Although each forkful is undoubtedly rich, the mouthfeel is light and delicate.
A Savory Brunch is All You Need Right Now!
Quiche V.S. Frittata
The fact that a quiche is baked slowly in a savory pie shell is perhaps the most evident distinction. A frittata, on the other hand, has no crust and cooks faster. A quiche can handle more cream than a frittata, since the crust provides some support.
Tips and Tricks For Your Sausage Quiche!
It can be prepared ahead of time and warmed by piece. So bake an extra, and take it to a friend!
To reheat an entire quiche in the oven, follow these steps: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until well heated.
You can use whichever type of cheese you like in this recipe, depending on what you have on hand and what flavor you want.
Serve the quiche at room temperature for breakfast or lunch with chopped fresh tomatoes or fruits. Pair it with a side of salad or soup for lunch.
Frequently Asked Questions
