What is it about quiche that makes it so darn good? The flaky, tender crust? Light, fluffy eggs? Velvety cheese? Savory yummies like sausage? Mushrooms? Yes! Absolutely, 100% all of it. There’s just some kind of magic that happens when it all hits the pie tin and comes together in 350 degree oven that can’t be explained.
Somewhere along the way, quiche became deemed as “lady food.” I don’t know why. It’s hearty and filling, and everyone at my house gobbles it up as soon as it cools off enough to eat. It’s even been deemed “food on the go” as my son has been known to cut a slice and head out the door, sustenance in hand.
And why not? Quiche done right is heavenly. They can be loaded up with all kinds of meats, cheeses and veggies. They’re simple to make. And they can be served for literally every meal.
I think that’s why we love quiche so much- it can be filled with what we like best. We’re currently partial to this incredibly satisfying Sausage & Mushroom Quiche. The sausage, Shiitake mushrooms and Parmesan cheese create a perfect umami, or meaty, savory, trifecta. That first bite is absolutely swoon-worthy. And keeps you coming back for more!
This definitely an easy dish that will gather your people around the table any time of the day. Serve it with soup, salad or fruit (see my suggestions below). What a delicious way to spend time together!
Tips & Notes
- Save prep time by using precooked sausage crumbles.
- Many recipes suggest cooking the mushrooms and spinach & patting dry before adding them to the quiche to eliminate extra moisture that might make the crust soggy or the quiche from cooking. However, I’ve had great success using uncooked Shiitake mushrooms and fresh spinach in this quiche.
- Sometimes, Shiitake mushroom stems can be tough. If you like, you can trim them before adding them to your quiche.
- To make sure your crust is always crisp it is important to blind bake, or pre cook, your pie shell. Additionally, baking your quiche on the middle or bottom rack instead of the top rack of the oven helps too!
More Tips & Notes
