I decided to experiment one Sunday morning with a breakfast quiche. I love sun-dried tomatoes and always look for new ways to use them. I think the sweetness of the tomatoes goes wonderfully with sausage.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line pie pan with pie crust, and prick several places with a fork. Place a double layer of aluminum foil over the crust. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes, and then remove foil. Continue baking until crust begins to set, about 5 minutes; remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • In a large skillet, cook sausage until well browned, stirring frequently. Mix in shallots and garlic, and continue cooking for 1 minute. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes and 1 tablespoon parsley. Spread mixture into the bottom of the warm pie crust.

  • In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with cream. Stir in cheese. Pour mixture over sausage in pie crust. Sprinkle remaining parsley over the top.

  • Bake in preheated oven until crust browns and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 to 60 minutes.

This is excellent. I love it! Bf liked it very much too. I used bacon as I didn't have sausage but I'm sure it would be just as good with sausage. To make things easier on myself I just chopped the sun dried tomatoes in the food processor with the rest of the ingredients that needed mixed with it. Takes a few pulses and voila! mixed together and chopped sun dried tomatoes all at the same time. I used the jarred sun dried tomatoes in oil for this recipe as it didn't say one way or the other. Worked perfectly. At the written time and temp it got pretty dark; I probably should've checked on it but it really didn't affect the taste at all. Still very wonderful. Thanks for the recipe! We will make it again. Read More

This quiche smelled delicious when it was baking and came out looking beautiful. I was really excited to try it but ended up pretty disappointed. I really thought it was only ok! Kinda one-note to me. Maybe the recipe relies too much on flavoring from the sausage I'm not sure. I've had better. Read More

DH loved it. I used the Basic Flaky Pie Crust recipe for the crust. Substituted chopped onion for the shallots. Used dried tomato in a package-no oil-and snipped it very fine with kitchen scissors. Used a mix of colby and mozzerella grated cheese because that's what I had. Baked at 350F for 50 minutes in a French White quiche dish let it set for 10 minutes. Used mild sausage; it was very good.

Our new favorite dish but I've made some changes. I made it with vegetarian sausages and added more garlic than the original recipe calls for. Read More

This turned out excellent. Only difference is I used spicy sausage since that's all I had on hand. I was slightly concerned about the spiciness but it was perfect. I used the sun dried tomatoes packed in oil. While baking I tented with foil because I was worried it would brown too much. I prepared this the night before and heated it up the following morning. Great. Will make again! Read More

I used half-and-half instead of whipping cream just because my husband has a problem with heavy cream. The result was really yummy; he couldn't stop eating it! Read More

Wow! I made this for my husband's birthday breakfast...so SO good!! Instead of mozz. cheese I used Provel (it's a combination of swiss cheddar & provelone-- a St Louis thing). This will be a keeper! Read More

This is an easy and delicious quiche recipe that can be altered to your own liking.I gave it 4 stars because i wasn't amazed. I think the sun dried tomatoes could be reduced. I added my signature ingredients of spinach and cayenne pepper. It was great and cooked perfectly after 50 minutes I did tent with foil for half an hour. I also chose colby jack cheese instead of mozzarella and used 2 boneless chicken thighs in place of the sausage at the request of my boyfriend. Tasted good but would love to try again with the sausage. Will continue to use this recipe as a base and switch up the meats and cheeses! Would be nice for brunch or breakfast with bacon. Read More
