Reivew of Trisha Yearwood's Quiche Perfect for Mom's Day

I made this really easy quiche recipe a few weeks ago and think it would be perfect for a Mother's Day surprise. This recipe is from the Foodnetwork and Trisha Yearwood's new show.  It was very easy to make and can be made anytime, even for dinner. You are free to get the original recipe on the

What I love about the quiche is, it works well with almost any vegetable. Here she used cherry tomatoes but you can add things like broccoli, or green peppers, to give it some flavor. Also she used cheddar cheese but varying the cheese will also add some zip. I used Mozzarella but it would also be nice with pepper jack. I also liked the recipe could be used to make two pies. I tin foiled one and saved it for the next day's breakfast.

The Quiche                                                               

1/2 tube sausage browned*I think she used a tube
1 tsp baking powder
20 grape tomatoes halved
8oz cheese of your choice *she used 10oz.
6 eggs *I used 8 whisked
1/4 cup milk *I added because it didn't seem like it was enough
2 frozen pie crusts

Set the oven to 350 degrees. Brown the sausage and drain on paper towels. Mix the whisked eggs, milk, cheese, baking powder, tomatoes, and veggies of your choice. Once cooled combine the sausage with the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into two pie crusts. Bake for 30 minutes or until set.


  1. I made this today after seeing the show yesterday. Came out fantastic. I love quiche. It can be a truly hearty meal!

  2. I love this one too! I have made it a few times now. The only thing I change is adding less cheese, different veggies, and more eggs. Other than that, it's easy as pie:)

  3. I am making this with chorizo today. It helps if you just lay the chorizo in the pie crust and don't stir it. Because the eggs turn red:)
