Looking for something different for breakfast?  This quiche has fantastic flavor and could not be easier to make!  The crust only has 3 ingredients and only takes a few minutes to put together.  Sweet Italian sausage, spinach, juicy tomatoes, parmesan and tangy goat cheese fill this easy crust.  The best part is, if you have other ingredients on hand to use, you can substitute just about any part of the filling!  If you have leftover veggies that you want to use up, add them to this quiche!

2 cups super fine almond flour

1/4 cup grass-fed unsalted butter, melted

1 whole egg
