Mornings are hectic. Even with careful prep the night before mornings are still rough between wrangling little ones full of energy, getting the oldest ready for school, and making breakfast. Breakfast is my least favorite meal of the day and more mornings than I care to tally my kiddos get cereal. Not because I don’t like breakfast food. I totally love it. It is my least favorite because I do not function well in the morning. That is why easy breakfasts are imperative. I need meals that are fast, easy to make, and yummy. This quick and easy sausage quiche is a great hot breakfast that fits the bill. It takes about 45 minutes to make but because you can freeze it, getting a hot breakfast on the table is easy.

How to Freeze
I use the pre-made pie crusts already in tins for this recipe. That makes is easier to freeze without tying up my pie plates. To freeze this recipe, keep your pie crusts frozen until you have finished preparing your filling. After the filling is ready, pull out your pie crust and pour the filling into it. Place it back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to set. Next, pull out your set quiche and place it in a re-sealable freezer bag or a Food Saver pouch. Freeze your quiche for up to 2 weeks in the re-sealable freezer bag and up to 30 days in a Food Saver pouch. When you are ready to cook it, pull out to defrost then bake as in the recipe.
This quick and easy sausage quiche is an absolutely delicious hot breakfast. Throw it in the oven when you wake up and let it bake while you and the kiddos get ready for the day. One quiche serves 8 but my family loves it so much that they always go back for seconds. If you are serving a hungry family of more than 4, I recommend make 2 quiches to serve.
