Week of Easter: 6 days until Easter!

Quiches are a great idea for Easter brunch & there are endless combinations of meats, cheeses and veggies to fill your quiche will.  Typical quiches from a restaurant are full of fat because of the crust, however, this quiche is made with a whole wheat flour tortilla crust which makes it a completely healthy yet flavorful dish that anyone would love

Ingredients: Yields 8 servings

  • 1/2 package of Jenny-O turkey sausage
  • 3 whole wheat tortillas
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup swiss cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 c. asparagus pieces
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cook turkey sausage in bite-sized chunks according to package, set aside
  3. Saute red pepper & asparagus, set aside
  4. Coat round pyrex oven-safe plate with olive oil
  5. Overlap 2 tortillas & cut the third in half to form a crust without spaces
  6. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and milk
  7. Add turkey sausage, swiss cheese, red pepper, asparagus, paprika, salt & pepper to egg mixture & combine
  8. Pour egg mixture into tortilla-lined pyrex
