Great for those of you who are trying to cut out carbs. This crustless quiche is jam packed with delicious flavorful veggies and a yummy spicy chicken sausage. You won't even miss the crust when you have this. Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even a light dinner.
5 links of spicy chicken sausage(I used the jalapeño chicken sausage from Trader Joes) you may substitute any sausage that you prefer.
1 package of frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained well
1 yellow squash, sliced
1 zucchini, sliced
6 eggs (or 8 egg whites)
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. In a large saucepan add about a tablespoon of olive oil and brown sausage links. Once sausage is browned on all sides remove from pan, slice and set aside. Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the hot saucepan and add in the yellow squash and zucchini slices and sauté on medium heat until slightly soft. Next add the drained, chopped spinach to the pan and warm through. Add back in the sliced sausage and cook contents for an additional 3 minutes. Turn off heat and set pan aside to cool. In a large bowl add in your eggs (or egg whites) and beat until frothy. To the egg mixture add the cooled sausage and veggies and mix well. Lastly, add in the shredded cheese and mix. Pour quiche mixture into the prepared casserole dish and place in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes. Quiche is done when lightly browned on top and firm to the touch in the center of quiche. Slice into squares and serve hot.
