Sausage + Onion Quiche

Quiche is one of those breakfast foods that you could eat any time of day. It's the most comforting, cozy slice of heaven. This Sausage and Onion recipe is my favorite.

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large Jimmy Dean pork sausage
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese (or Swiss/Motz if you prefer)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute sausage, garlic and onion in butter until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Use spatula to break up sausage and cook thoroughly. Stir in 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into pie crust.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into the pastry shell, allowing egg mixture to thoroughly combine with sausage mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle top with remaining Cheddar cheese, and bake an additional 35 to 40 minutes, until set in center. Allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.

This is my mom's Christmas morning breakfast recipe....I can't wait to make it again this year... delish!
