Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 6 people


  • 16 oz. pork breakfast sausage
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


  • In a skillet, cook, combine & crumble breakfast sausage and onion powder
  • In a separate large bowl crack eggs & whip well
  • Stir heavy whipping cream into eggs
  • Add cheese to egg & whipping cream mixture
  • Add sausage to the cream & egg mixture
  • Pour into a sprayed 2-Quart casserole dish, distributing mixture evenly over the bottom of the dish
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, and an inserted toothpick comes out clean


I used a 12x8 inch 2-quart casserole dish. If your dish is smaller, then adjust your baking time to make sure the middle gets cooked all the way through and a toothpick comes out clean.
Because our daughter and I were making this quiche breakfast on the fly, I only had shredded colby jack cheese handy and that tasted just as delicious as cheddar cheese would, so use the shredded cheese that you have on hand. It will still be just as outstanding!
