Sausage, Kale and Mushroom Quiche

   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.
Sausage, Kale and Mushroom Quiche


3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 lb sausage (The hot Italian sausage was really good!)
1/2 cup mozzarella
1/4 cup parmesan
4 oz mushrooms, sliced (optional)
2 cups kale 
  1. Brown the sausage, drain if there is excessive grease.
  2. Add sliced mushrooms and allow to brown.
  3. Add kale and cook until it begins to wilt and soften.
  4. Turn off heat.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.
  5. Get crust ready in a deep dish pie plate.
  6. Stir mozzarella into kale mixture and spread over crust.  Pour egg mixture over the kale.
  7. Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes.  Top with Parmesan and continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes.  The quiche should be set except for the very center which should still have a slight jiggle.

    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.
