The summer months are full of fun in the sun and lots of delicious, fresh produce, like tomatoes, which taste great in all types of dishes, including quiches! This Sausage and Tomato Quiche is simple to make with a refrigerated pie crust and is also filling and nutritious. And although it’s a complete meal by itself, you can also pair it with some fresh-cut fruit and your favorite breakfast (or brunch) drink, whether that’s coffee, fruit juice or even a mimosa.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a 9-inch pie dish with the pie crust and crimp the edges. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork. Line a baking sheet with a double layer of aluminum foil and place the pie dish on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the crust is lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and reduce heat to 375°F.

Add the sausage and cook until browned and cooked through. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomatoes and remove from heat.
