Crustless Quiche with Sausage, Spinach, & Tomato

What’s better on a cold January morning than quiche?

Maybe a cup of hot coffee to go with it. šŸ˜‰

 

Breakfast casserole, frittata, quiche, a slice of heaven . . . call it what you will, it’s hard to go wrong by.

 

If you’ve been following me this month, you know that Whole30 is in full swing in our household. We are on day 9, and honestly it has been an incredible start to our New Year!
