Sausage and Kale Quiche

Simple but flavorful, the sausage and kale quiche is a perfect breakfast, brunch or easy dinner.



    I have been getting weekly bunches of kale delivered in my CSA boxes.  We have been enjoying it in salads like the lemon and chickpea kale salad, we've had it in fruity bleu cheese salads, in soups and more.  We have been loving it all, but I want to keep it fresh so we aren't eating the same kinds of dishes over and over.


   That is when I remembered this quiche recipe.  It has been a few years since I made it and I thought it would be fun to revisit it.  Plus it was a great way to to not burn my husband out on salads!  I am so glad we revisited it.



   My husband isn't usually a big fan of breakfast food for dinner.  He will tolerate it, but isn't ever going to request it.  He ate a couple of slices dutifully, but I expected to have the leftovers to myself. I was wrong. He ate the rest of it himself! I'd say that was an endorsement.



Now to the original post from 2015:

   I have been in the mood for Zopa lately.  There is just something about the sausage and kale that just good so good together.  But, when I make soup... I make a big pot.  Sometimes it is hard to stop!

    I pull out a big pot and start with my intended ingredients.  Then I add a little something else.  Maybe a bit of this and some of that.  Next thing I know the pot is full.  If there is room, I keep adding!



   So, I decided to take the flavors I love and make a quiche.  There is less room for it to grow! I used hot Italian sausage, but you could use sweet.  Or feel free to use breakfast sausage, that would be good too!  Matt went back for thirds, so that is a good sign.  It really hit the spot!  It made an excellent dinner, but would be a really nice option for a brunch as well.

    1. It is really good. It would be good with spinach too. Kale is a stronger flavored green, but you can blanch first to take it down a notch if you'd like.
