Prep Time 20 mins Cook Time 58 mins Total Time 1 hr 18 mins
Servings: 8 Slices
1 Pie Crust* 1 Lb Italian sausage casings removed, I used spicy 5 Ounces Kale chopped, fresh 1 Cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes** chopped 8 Eggs large 1 1/3 Cup Heavy Cream 1/2 Teaspoon Salt 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper 1 Cup Mozzarella
Prepare your pie crust and set it aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Remove the sausage casings.
Add sausage to a large skillet and cook over medium heat, breaking it up with the back of a spoon into small pieces as it cooks.
Once cooked through (no longer any pink), place the sausage on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess grease.
Add kale to the skillet and cook until it becomes soft.
Remove and place on paper towels.
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper together.
Add sausage, kale, sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella.
Pour into prepared pie crust.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until it’s cooked all the way through — you’ll know the quiche is done when the edges are brown and the center is completely set.
Allow the quiche to cool before slicing, and enjoy!
*I always use my low carb pie crust for this, but any pre-baked crust will do.
Some pie crusts can burn, to prevent this, create a sleeve around the edge of the crust using tin foil.
**Cut some carbs by swapping sundried tomatoes for fresh tomatoes, or leaving out the tomatoes all together.
