How to make crustless quiche with Italian turkey sausage and peppers

This tasty quiche is simple to prep and uses less than 10 ingredients!

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Step 2: Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the bread crumbs into the bottom of the pie plate.

Step 3: In a large skillet, cook the crumbled turkey sausage and onions over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for about 7 minutes. Once the meat is no longer pink and the onions are translucent, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

Step 4: Add the sausage and onions to the pie plate, distributing evenly.

Step 5: Sprinkle the pie plate with the green pepper, red pepper, and cheese.

Step 6: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and pepper, then pour into the pie plate.

Step 7: Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the center is set and the top is beginning to brown in spots.

Step 8: Remove from the oven and set the pie plate on a wire rack. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing into wedges.

Enjoy your tasty quiche for a nutritious breakfast, quick lunch, or even a delicious dinner! After all, there’s no reason you should only get to eat eggs for breakfast.

Variations for this recipe

There are so many different ways to make quiches. If you want, you can use this recipe as a base and modify based on your tastes and preferences!

Looking for a gluten-free option? Just use gluten-free bread crumbs and make sure your turkey sausage is gluten-free as well. Want to reduce the fat and cholesterol? Use 1 cup of egg substitute instead of whole eggs.

You can also play around with the flavors and ingredients. Instead of turkey sausage, you could try turkey bacon, cubed ham, or even pulled chicken. Swap the bell peppers out for other crunchy veggies (or just add more vegetables!)

Don’t have mozzarella on hand? Use whatever cheese is in your fridge! If you ask me, it’s hard to go wrong with cheese.

Storage

Once your quiche has fully cooled, you can store it covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. If you try to cover it while it’s still warm, you may end up with condensation that will make your quiche soggy.

Leftovers reheat very well in the microwave, so you can enjoy them at home or just as easily take them on-the-go!
