Real Men Do Eat Quiche

by jerseygirl on May 7, 2009 · 35 comments

I have some breaking news. After over 40 years of living an eggless life, my husband finally eats quiche. And loves it! This has been going on now for a few weeks. We’ve been having quiche for dinner once a week. I love making quiche for dinner. Not only does it taste good but it is easy to make in advance and pop in the oven after karate, baseball or drama.
This, my friends, is a manly quiche. It is filled with hearty ingredients and plenty of sausage. I used chicken sausage and also added some nutritious veggies. You could almost call it a pie. The funny thing is that every time I make a quiche, the husband says it’s the best he’s ever eaten. But then he eats another and we have a new best. I’m happy, he’s happy and it’s all because of a quiche.

Manly Sausage, Mushroom and Spinach Quiche
1 (9 inch) pie crust
1 TBS olive oil
6 links uncooked breakfast sausages (1/2 lb) (I used chicken)
1/4 cup chopped onion
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
2 cups frozen spinach
3 large eggs
6 ounces plain low fat yogurt (I used Greek)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 slices Provolone cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prick pie shell with fork and bake for 8 minutes. Heat oil on medium in a large frying pan and saute sausages for 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Break up into pieces. Add onions and mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes or until soft. Add spinach and cook until it is defrosted while stirring occasionally. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, yogurt, mustard and mozzarella cheese. After the pie shell is pre baked, lay the slices of Provolone on the bottom of the shell. Pour in sausage mixture then top with egg mixture. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until eggs are set in middle and pie is golden. Cover edges with foil while baking if necessary. Cool for 20 minutes before serving.

Lisa, I can see why real men eat your quiche. This looks scrumptious and, of course, manly.


Dawn May 7, 2009 at 10:28 am

haha! my hubby will eat quiche if I put enough manly things in it too. LOL
this one looks so cheesy!


Pam May 7, 2009 at 10:43 am

My kids won’t eat eggs – mayble I’ll try this quiche out on them. It looks really good.


That Girl May 7, 2009 at 11:21 am

I don’t know WHERE this “men don’t eat quiche” thing came from. Men eat pie…men eat eggs….quiche is just egg pie.


Cristine May 7, 2009 at 1:27 pm

Looks amazing!

Lisa- They closed down the local Mexican theme restaurant we opted to go out to, to an American theme place, so I cook for my Indian family on Tuesday, and that was what they wanted, Chicken and Rice ๐Ÿ™

I like your quiche, nice and browned. Have not made it in a long while- thanks for coming over!


Lynda May 7, 2009 at 3:39 pm

This looks so delicious and I love that you used yogurt in it! My husband will love this “manly quiche”!


Sara May 7, 2009 at 8:11 pm

This looks delicious! I wonder if I can convince my husband to eat it :)?


ttfn300 May 7, 2009 at 11:23 pm

hehe, definitely a MANLY quiche ๐Ÿ™‚


Mariaโ™ฅ May 8, 2009 at 6:18 am

Men are such funny creatures!! The quiche looks delicious.



Jamie May 8, 2009 at 7:15 am

My husband would love this, but sadly stays away from foods like this because of his diet. But I can easily say that my young man (20 years old) would eat the entire quiche in one sitting. Real (French)men do indeed eat quiche!


Katherine Aucoin May 8, 2009 at 8:27 am

Your quiche looks incredible. I’ll have to show your post to my husband! Maybe finally he’ll change his mind about quiche or starve! LOL

Happy a wonderful Mother’s Day Lisa!


Bridgett May 8, 2009 at 11:35 am

I absolutely love quiche and this looks amazing! Great post Lisa!

I wish I could convince my hubby to eat breakfast for dinner, but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen!

Never thought to put yogurt in my quiche though – great idea!


HoneyB May 8, 2009 at 2:36 pm

Nice! I’m glad he finally gave it a try and loved it!


The Japanese Redneck May 8, 2009 at 2:37 pm

After eating this really gross healthy choice, my tongue slapped me in the face after see the picture of that yummy looking quiche.

If I said it was quiche he probably would not even try it. But, I could say it’s a deep dish pizza and he’d scarf it up.



JennDZ - The Leftover Queen May 8, 2009 at 3:31 pm

That is awesome! I love quiche too – it is the perfect make ahead meal! I really need to make it more often!


Allie May 8, 2009 at 4:12 pm

I’m not a 100% fan on quiche I really want to like it but I make the ugly face when I hear my mom wants to make it for us. I think it’s from her making it too much when I was a kid. Yours sounds yummy I will have to try it again.


kat May 8, 2009 at 5:36 pm

He didn’t eat eggs fOr 40 years?! wow!


melissa May 8, 2009 at 8:00 pm

That looks mighty hearty Lisa. Congrats on getting hubby to eat quiche. Would love for Steve to try it one day… I especially love the combo – put spinach and sausage in just about anything and I will maul it.


Robin Sue May 8, 2009 at 11:54 pm

Yes they do eat quiche and like it! I like quiche for the same reasons as you do plus it’s inexpensive and goes far with a salad.


Kerstin May 9, 2009 at 1:04 am

Yum, what a hearty and flavorful quiche! I can see why your hubby is a big fan!


Debbie May 9, 2009 at 8:01 am

My husband does not care for eggs either but he’ll eat quiche. I love quiche and could easily eat it once a week too! Yours look so good!


Maria May 9, 2009 at 11:39 am

My hubs love quiche. Looks fantastic!


Chef Fresco May 9, 2009 at 9:02 pm

Yum!! My bf would LOVE this! I’ll have to surprise him with it one of these days ๐Ÿ™‚


Bunny May 9, 2009 at 9:17 pm

Bravo for your hubby!! You make one mean quiche girl , it sounds terrific!


Jeena May 10, 2009 at 10:52 am

Lovely quiche Lisa no wonder your hubby loves it.


Penny May 10, 2009 at 11:24 am

Glad you converted him! I could live on quiche . . . well maybe that and chocolate . . . add to that wine. OK. I’m happy now.


Elra May 10, 2009 at 12:19 pm

WOW, 40 years? I had to read it twice to make sure that I’ve read it right! OMG, I can not believe that.
Bravo to you Jersey Girl! That “quiche” must have been tasted divine!


Jeff May 12, 2009 at 12:27 pm

Wow impressive that you husband broke down and gave eggs a shot.

Definitely bookmarking this one. I am always looking for new breakfast ideas for the morning after a bad poker night and my house is full of hungover guys.
