Sausage and Spinach Crustless Quiche {Low Carb & Keto}

Ok, this Sausage and Spinach Crustless Quiche is one of my new favorite low carb recipes. I made my Low Carb Ham and Cheese Crustless Quiche for a work breakfast a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit so when the weekend came around I decided to try out a few different variations.



This low carb quiche is packed full of fluffy eggs, a creamy mixture of sauce and cream cheese, spinach, and a little more cheese because you can’t ever really have too much cheese. The result is the perfect keto breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

I’m hyping up the low carb part because I have been trying to be good but this is a breakfast or brunch casserole that people will love whether they are avoiding carbs or not. This fluffy crustless quiche would make a great addition to any Easter brunch, Mother’s Day brunch, or just a Sunday family breakfast.

HOW DO YOU MAKE SAUSAGE AND SPINACH CRUSTLESS QUICHE?



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a skillet over medium high heat brown the ground breakfast sausage until it is almost cooked through. Drain excess grease and return to the skillet.
Add cream cheese and stir together with sausage cooking until the sausage finishes cooking and the cream cheese is fully melted.
Place baby spinach in a microwave-safe bowl and add 2 tablespoons of water. Microwave for 2-3 minutes until spinach is lightly steamed and tender. If you prefer you can saute the spinach in a skillet with a teaspoon or two of olive oil rather than microwaving. 
In a bowl add eggs and 1 cup of heavy cream. Whisk together.
Spoon the sausage cream cheese mixture into a greased 11×7 inch casserole dish. You can also use a 13×9 inch casserole dish the quiche just won’t be as thick and may cook slightly faster. 
Add spinach on top of the sausage and sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over everything.
Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and spinach and use a spoon to move things around just a big to let the eggs get down into the mixture.
Place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until you can jiggle the pan and the quiche doesn’t shake in the center.
Remove and let cool for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

HOW TO REHEAT SAUSAGE AND SPINACH CRUSTLESS QUICHE:

This is the kind of recipe that I like to make on Sunday when I have a little extra time and then I reheat it throughout the week for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. To reheat all you have to do is place it in the microwave for approximately 2 minutes (time may vary depending on your microwave).



If you don’t want to use a microwave you can place a slice in a small casserole dish covered with foil, and heat it in a 350 degrees F oven for 4-5 minutes. To reheat the whole casserole in the oven heat, covered with foil, for about 20 minutes.
