I love getting my home ready for the holidays and it’s this time of the year when holiday mornings get hectic.

We’ve been loving quiche for breakfast and it has become one of my go-to breakfast recipes. It’s such a versatile dish and still tastes amazing even after it has been frozen and thawed. I love to make more than one batch at a time, so I can have a fresh one on hand, and freeze the second for a breakfast in a pinch!

How to make mini crustless baby kale, sausage and cheddar quiches with Smithfield Hometown Original Fresh Breakfast Sausage

Another great way to have quiche is to make individual portions by baking them crustless in mini muffin tins. It’s so simple to make these quiches and cooks faster than it would in a pie crust. Not to mention, you can save time in the kitchen because you don’t have to make homemade pie crust, cutting out the crust and pinching it into the muffin pan. And I love that it is healthier too! What’s not to love?

    A quiche is a perfect breakfast option and your recipe sounds like a great idea, Jocelyn. A perfect combination of ingredients. Can I use red onion in addition to the green one?
