Quiche is one of our favorite meals. We usually eat it for lunch or dinner. I’m always thinking of new flavor combinations to try out. I decided to try a quiche with our favorite combination of sausage and cream cheese. WOW!! SO good!! We ate this for lunch and dinner the same night.

This quiche can be made ahead of time and frozen unbaked. I actually like to double the recipe and freeze one for later. We both really, really enjoyed this quiche. It tastes great and was super easy to make. We loved it so much that I am actually making it again this weekend. Add this to your menu! It would be great for Easter brunch next month or Mother’s Day. This recipe has definitely gone into our dinner rotation. Enjoy!

  1. This is our favorite quiche. Pulled one out of the freezer yesterday to bake this morning. Great flavor and it’s perfect every time. Always make 2 so I have one on hand.

  2. You might like this variation. I use 50/50 sausage and ground beef. while the meat is cooking I add 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, a sprinkle of nutmeg and a tiny sprinkle (1/8 tsp? I don't measure) of clove. Once the pie is assembled I add a bit of parsley on top before baking. It sounds unusual but tastes amazing. This is a big hit with my family.

    1. I don’t think so. The frozen crust isn’t baked. So I wouldn’t think a refrigerated crust should be baked. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  3. How many calories would you guess were in it if you did without pie shell & made muffins instead?

    1. I think it would be fine. I’ve been testing some low-carb recipes similar to this and they turned out great.

        1. You can do that. You can also freeze the quiche unbaked. Thaw it completely and bake as directed.

  4. Great recipe..so light and fluffy. We love quiche, I made this the other night for dinner with a few additions; a few sliced fresh mushrooms, 1/4 of green pepper finely chopped and one small onion finely chopped. I browned the sausage, scooped it out of the pan with a slotted spoon, added the veggies to pan to sauté for a few minutes then added the sausage back in along with the cream cheese till it melted and coated everything.

    I served the quiche with a tossed salad and a delicious dinner was served. My husband loved it, he didn't want to stop eating. Definitely a keeper!

  5. I live in Canada and we do not have Jimmy Deans or Tennessee Pride any suggestions on what other kind of sausage I could use would any kind of breakfast sausage work.

    1. I just stirred together the cooked sausage and softened cream cheese. I didn't put the cream cheese in the skillet.

  6. Thanks for another great idea Steph! Sausage and cream cheese together is one of my all-time favorite combinations too!!!

  7. And how do you cook the frozen unbaked quiche? (I need specifics.) Thaw it first? Bake the frozen quiche?
