I LOVE Quiche, but, often do not LOVE the calories and fat in traditional quiches. This recipe takes away the crust and butter, but, replaces it with flavor and a little spicy HEAT. I used Jennie-O turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, however, there are other versions that are lower in fat.
If I was to make this again, I would use my Homemade Turkey Sausage that is leaner and tastes even better.
