Sausage & Rotel Quiche Recipe

We love quiche at our house. It is super easy to make and tastes great. This Southwestern Sausage Quiche is one of our favorites! Quiche loaded with sausage and Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles. YUM! I made this for lunch last week and we devoured the whole thing in no time flat! Next time I will make two quiches so we can have leftovers.

How to Make Southwestern Sausage Quiche

This dish is super easy to make. Start with cooking some sausage. Spread the sausage in the bottom of a pie crust. Top the sausage with cheese and some Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles. Whisk together taco seasoning, eggs, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage in the pie crust and bake.

  • I used Jimmy Dean sausage in this recipe.
  • You can use any type of cheese that you prefer.
  • Here is our recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning: https://www.plainchicken.com/homemade-taco-seasoning/
  • I did not thaw or prebake the crust prior to adding the filling.
  • Is Southwestern Sausage Quiche spicy? We did not think this dish was spicy. If you are worried about the heat, use a can of Mild Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles.
  • Can quiche be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the quiche and refrigerate it overnight. I like to make the filling and pour it into the crust right before baking.
  • Can sausage quiche be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the quiche baked or unbaked.
    • To freeze the baked quiche, let the quiche thaw completely and wrap tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. The quiche will keep up to 3 months in the freezer.
    • To freeze the unbaked quiche, assemble the quiche and transfer it to the freezer. Once the quiche is frozen, tightly wrap it in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. To bake, thaw completely, and bake as directed.

  1. If I made two and froze one…how do you suggest reheating the frozen one? (This has been a house favorite for awhile!) Thanks!

    1. I usually freeze the quiche unbaked. I thaw it completely and bake as directed. If you want to freeze an already baked quiche, you can thaw it, cover with foil and bake at 350ºF for about 30 minutes. You can also remove the quiche from the disposable foil pan and reheat it in the microwave.

  2. I omitted the sausage for a Meatless Monday meal, and added some cilantro. Maybe I didn't give it a chance, but mine didn't look remotely done at one hour (but I didn't let it sit first). I increased the temp and time. It ran too late to have it for dinner, but it's going to be fabulous for breakfast!

  3. I pinned this several months ago and finally got around to making it tonight. It is SO good! Seriously one of the best quiches I've ever had. I doubled it so had to bake longer to get them both done and probably should have still done it a little longer to allow the center to set up a little more but overall I love it. This will be on repeat in our house!

  4. Thanks! I am excited. Got some spicy sausage. I love breakfast casserole, so this looks like a good twist on that!

  5. Just found this and am excited to make it tonight. I got a frozen pie crust. Do I have to go ahead and bake that before I do the mixture?

  6. I don't think you can go wrong with rotel, sausage and cheese. Looks awesome!

  7. I love quiche!! That looks great Steph – hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy 4th!!

  8. I really like the sound of this one. The quiche that I've made in the past was kinda bland.

    Great idea.

  9. You sure are on a roll – I think I've bookmarked your last 3 dishes and this is another that sounds delicious. Thanks for the advice on which Rotel to use.
