Didn't have enough mushrooms so I added some yellow squash and cauliflower. (You should sweat the veggies so they don't give off too much water). A little sprinkle of reduced fat Parmesan on top finished it off nicely. I could not find the recommend cheese so I just used some low calorie swiss. The taste of the sausage take over the quiche so you don't need alot of cheese. I actually made one with a whole wheat crust and for the other pie I lined my pan with heavy duty foil, sprayed it with Pam's Organic Olive Oil and poured it right in. This lowered the calories a bit and we didn't miss the crust one bit. You will need to let it set a bit before serving. Everyone loved it. (served with low calorie potatoe-artichoke soup) I'll make this one again for sure! Yumm!

We've loaded this meaty pie with a whole pound of turkey sausage and given it a fabulous, flaky phyllo crust. Real men do eat quiche!

Made this for dinner last night and the family loved it. I didn't have any phyllo dough, but I did have a frozen pie crust which worked well after thawing 20 minutes,even though it probably added more saturated fat than the phyllo. Next time I will try the phyllo. Note the sauteed mushrooms and onions gave off a little more liquid while baking in the oven--but after 45 min the eggs were completely cooked even though there appeared to be a bit of liquid bubbling on the top.
Very tasty. Really enjoyed using phylo instead of the traditional pie crust.
