Sausage & Kale Quiche

Quiche is one of those things that can be thrown together with whatever you have in your fridge or pantry. I’ve made so many variations of this and each one gets better.

With this recipe below you can’t go wrong with sausage and kale. I used a spicy Italian sausage that gave it such a great flavor! What’s even better is there is minimal fuss because the pie crust is ready for you to use.

You can find these pie crusts in the freezer aisle of many grocery stores including Whole Foods. They have a whole wheat version which is great, and both the white and whole wheat version are dairy free. Did I mention they come two to a pack? You can easily double the recipe 😉 Happy cooking!
