Ingredients

For the Crust

For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup sweet Italian sausage cooked
  • 1/2 of a 9 ounce package frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed completely dry)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 ounce of goat cheese
  • 4 grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh lemon thyme or thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

To make the quiche crust

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Add the almond flour, butter and egg to the bowl of a food processor and mix until a dough is formed.
  • Place the dough in a 9" non-stick tart pan with a removable bottom and press out, going up the sides.
  • Prick the dough with a fork and cover with parchment paper and either pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the parchment paper/weights and allow to cool slightly before filling.

To Make the Filling

  • Add the eggs to a large mixing bowl and blend using a hand mixer, whisk or fork.  Add in the heavy cream, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese, continue mixing.  Add in the sausage, lemon thyme and spinach and mix by hand.
  • Pour the mixture into the quiche crust.  Add in the goat cheese in small chunks and add in the tomatoes, skin side down.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the middle has no jiggle to it.  Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
