  • Mix sausage, onion, bell pepper, sour cream, Cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, garlic powder, hot pepper sauce, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; mix in beaten eggs until incorporated. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown and center is set, 50 to 55 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.

This was delicious. I liked the tang of the sour cream. I had a little bit of ricotta to use up so that went in too. I would like to make this again soemtime but I would add a green veggie and use a spicier sausage for my tastes Read More

Used this as a base receipe and made a little change. Used 5 eggs and CHORIZO (new from Jimmy Dean). It was awesome served with Salsa / Sour Cream /Guac -- Made it a Mexican Quiche. Great base recipe. If you use the Chorizo it's takes on a golden color versus yellow. Read More

This is an amazing recipe. So versatile. I had a can of spam so I chopped that up and sautéed it with some onions and chopped garlic and chopped green peppers. Threw it into the mix. House smelled wonderful while it cooked. Tasted great. Recipe made enough for a delicious breakfast and lunch for my husband and I. Will double it next time to feed extended family. Read More

This recipe is excellent! I made it for dinner but added to my breakfast recipes because it is glutton free and better than many breakfast casseroles that I have made. I did not have two kinds of cheese so I used pepper jack cheese. I didn't add hot sauce because my family doesn't like spicy hot. I sauteed the peppers and onions while the sausage was cooking and then added it to the sausage. Also I didn't drain all the grease from the sausage so it turned out juicy but not too greasy. YUM! I added Cheddar Bay Biscuits (box mix like what they serve at Red Lobster) to the meal with a salad. Read More

I made this along with another quiche from this site for a girls get away weekend and they were both loved by all. I didn't change a thing in this recipe. the only reason I only gave it 4 stars is that the other recipe (Spinach and Mushroom Quiche) was all gone and there were a few pieces of this pie leftover.
