Broccoli and Breakfast Sausage Quiche - Healing and Eating

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I’m back in New Jersey where I grew up prepping for my wedding, so I get to spend today with my mom! We made this awesome broccoli and breakfast sausage quiche with locally sourced pastured sausage and eggs. The crust is made with almond flour so this quiche is seriously packed with protein, which my brother loves. It’s very filling so unless you eat crazy big portions like my brother and I, be prepared for leftovers.

    1. Thank you!!! I’m so glad you liked the recipe. Hopefully it didn’t take too much longer. I tend to error on less time so I don’t accidentally burn and ruin the whole dish :)

  1. I agree with the earlier comments – this is really good! I was surprised at the tastiness & simplicity of the crust. I think I might try using 2T butter instead of the coconut oil just to see how comes out.

  2. I would love to make this for an upcoming friend trip. Do you think I could make the dough ahead of time and it would keep for about a day so I don’t have to cart food processor on the trip?

    1. I’ve made the dough overnight, and kept it in the fridge before, but I would be wary of letting it sit out for a day, since the dough contains egg. You are welcome to try and tell me how it turns out :)
