Easy Sausage and Vegetable Quiche.
For those days when you want a hearty, substantial supper, but don’t feel like putting a lot of time and effort into it, this simple recipe is just the ticket.
It’s full of protein and veggies and could really be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
The secret to it being easy is in the fact that you don’t have to prepare a crust. You simply use a little bit of baking mix (like Biquick) to create an almost crust-like texture.
And the options are limitless for what you can put in for your protein and veggies. Exchange the sausage for bacon or chicken or turkey or ground beef. You could even leave the meat out and just add more veggies. Throw in any favorite vegetables you have in your fridge – mushrooms, asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, kale, tomatoes….. And use any kind of cheese you love. Exchange the cheddar for Swiss or muenster or provolone or mozzarella or even blue cheese or feta.
You get the idea… right? Toss in whatever you like, and you can have a wide variety of quick and easy meals.
I was recently reminded of this recipe when I came across a version of it at The Speckled Pumpkin. It reminded me of years ago making all of those “impossible” pies…. Impossible Cheeseburger Pie, Impossible Taco Pie, Impossible Lasagna Pie, Impossible Tuna Pie…. Anybody else remember the Impossible Pie craze? I may be back in the mood for these!
Serve it with a salad or side of roasted potatoes or even some chunky applesauce.
Here is how I made mine for our Sunday Supper last night.
