Chicken Sausage & Spinach Quiche


Using precooked chicken sausage cuts way down on prep time. Plus, there are so many varieties available to add layers of flavor. Italian, apple-flavored or breakfast-style varieties all pair well with the spinach in this quiche.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 (9 inch) frozen prepared pie crust

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 precooked chicken sausage links, chopped (about 4 ounces)

  • 3 cups baby spinach

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Set out pie crust to thaw for 10 to 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add spinach to the pan and cook until it's just wilted; 1 minute. Spread the sausage and spinach in the bottom of the crust.

  3. Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture over the sausage and spinach in the crust.

  4. Set the quiche on a baking sheet and bake until the center is set, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
