As some of you who frequent The Kitchen is My Playground may know, my husband and I are thrilled to have recently welcomed a 5-year-old little girl into our family.  She is the sweetest, and -- while we are certainly experiencing a whole new level of tired -- she is the light of our lives.

Besides getting much less sleep than before becoming parents, with the addition of a child to our family another part of our life has changed quite a bit too ... our meals!

Not only do we now need to keep a pretty routine schedule with our meals -- no longer eating lunch at 3:00 if we've been busy all day, or enjoying a "fashionably late" 7:30 or 8:00'ish dinner -- I am now also much more on the lookout for quick and easy meals that can be ready in a flash.

With its low hands-on prep time and make-ahead convenience, Crustless Smoked Sausage & Spinach Quiche is a flavorfully delicious no-hassle meal the whole family will love.

With our school schedule, doctors appointments, gymnastics, church activities, and various other run-here-and-there commitments, sometimes I just don't feel like I have time to cook a good meal.

But you know what?  With the help of this Crustless Smoked Sausage & Spinach Quiche recipe, I sure do.

It can be whipped up easily with about 15 minutes of hands-on time, and reheats beautifully for a fabulous no-hassle make-ahead meal option.  Which makes it a fabulous busy week-day dinner option, for sure.

I must admit, we eat smoked sausage and kielbasa quite a bit for dinner, because it's so stinking easy to whip up quickly.

Usually, I just slice it, toss it in a pan to brown a little, and serve it up with some mashed potatoes or rice and a vegetable.  Truly, it's one of my favorite quick and easy go-to meals.

With this Crustless Smoked Sausage & Spinach Quiche, I still get to take advantage of the ease of packaged smoked sausage -- but dress it up a bit from my usual quick toss-in-a-pan preparation.

To make this tasty quiche, simply slice the smoked sausage into 1/4-inch thick rounds.

Then give the sausage rounds a quick saute with some chopped onions.

Place the sausage and onions in a pie dish and spread them out evenly along the bottom.

Next, mix up a simple quiche filling of eggs, spinach, cheese, milk, and a tiny bit of flour.  Pour the mixture over the sausage in the pie dish and then bake it up until set and a light golden brown around the edges.

  1. Is there a reason some of the Swiss cheese is put in the bottom of the pie plate? I also wanted to say thanks for not using Bisquick! I use Pioneer baking mix instead, when I need a "baking mix", because I don't like the taste of Bisquick. I think Pioneer has a better flavor. Thanks, SpinninJenny

    1. Hi there! The little bit of Swiss cheese on the bottom of the pie plate gives a great punch of flavor at the bottom of the quiche when it melts in with the smoked sausage. You can certainly skip that sprinkling on the bottom if you prefer, though, and stir all the Swiss cheese in with the egg mixture.

  13. This is sooo good. I've made it several times now and plan to keep on. I made it low-carb for me by using Carbquik instead of the flour. And using cream instead of the milk. Also added a green pepper to the saute mix. Man, I love this recipe. Thanks!

    1. Thank you for sharing your tweaks. We enjoy hearing how readers "personalize" the recipes.

    2. @ Elizabeth I did the same, using Carbquik and cream. Also used peppers instead of onions cuz they're healthy and lower carb than onions.
      I love this recipe and use it frequently.
