Do you ever feel intimidate by recipes with “fancy” titles? I know I do! Quiche was one of those recipes for me. It sounded like a delicious meal but something I’d only ever eat in a restaurant. Surely something so tasty would be difficult to make, right? Wrong! Quiche is surprisingly easy to make and the filling possibilities are endless! This past weekend I made a sausage and mushroom quiche for my family and it was a huge hit.
Still not convinced that you can tackle this recipe? Here’s a great video from Eggs.ca walking you through the steps.
Sausage and Mushroom Quiche:
You can pile the vegetables high in this dish and it makes a healthy meal for breakfast, lunch or supper.

Have you tried the Pizza Frittata that I highlighted last month? Remember – eggs aren’t just for breakfast! They have 14 important nutrients such as vitamin D, vitamin A, iron and contain only 70 calories.
