Cream Cheese Quiche with Sausage, Cheese, & Spinach


This quiche is one of Erin’s kids’ favorite meals.  It’s often requested for breakfast, brunch, and even supper.  Who doesn’t love breakfast food for supper?!  It’s so quick and easy to throw together and tastes like something you’d get at a fancy brunch.  There are two sets of ingredients noted below (standard & Weight Watchers friendly).  Enjoy!


Standard Ingredients (see below for Weight Watchers ingredient list):

7 eggs, room temperature

8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature

1 c. finely shredded cheddar or Colby-jack cheese

1 deep dish frozen pie crust

8 oz. breakfast sausage

2 c. baby spinach, loosely packed

2 T. half & half or milk

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. black pepper


Weight Watchers Ingredients:

7 eggs, room temperature

8 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature

1 c. Kraft 2% Mexican shredded cheese blend

1 deep dish frozen pie crust (such as Pillsbury All Vegetable)

8 oz. turkey breakfast sausage, browned (Jennie-O used here)

2 c. baby spinach, loosely packaged

2 T. fat-free half & half

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. black pepper



Preheat oven to 375°F.

Make sure your eggs and cream cheese are room temperature.  If not, you can microwave the cream cheese until it’s softened but not warm.  You can place your eggs in lukewarm water to bring them to room temperature faster.

Chop the spinach, removing any tough stems as needed.

In a blender, combine room temp. cream cheese, eggs, half & half, and salt & pepper until smooth.

Layer half the browned sausage, half the chopped spinach, and half the cheese in the bottom of the frozen pie crust.

Pour half the egg mixture over top.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Place quiche on foil-lined cookie sheet (in case it overflows!) and bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until center is set.

*If it starts to brown too much, place a piece of foil loosely over the top.

*Don’t have sausage?  No problem.  You can substitute crisp bacon or ham for the sausage.  (Be sure to adjust WW SmartPoints accordingly, if applicable.)
