    SweetsLady's Note:

    This cheese and sausage quiche is slightly sweet from the chopped apple. Prebaking the pastry, without the filling, ensures a crisp crust. I found this recipe in a Southern Living cookbook. We enjoyed it!

      I made this for breakfast this morning! What a wonderful fall treat! I followed the recipe exactly except I used Pink Lady apples (picked fresh last weekend). I did cook the onions for a few minutes before adding the apples, which has led to a perfect soft onion and crisp sweet apple in my breakfast. Thanks so much for a keeper!

      This is an absolutely delicious quiche. I made it with my No-Fail Pie Crust, which I had stored in the freezer. The only change I made was to cook the onion a bit before adding the apples, etc. The apple-sausage combo is a winner. I just used standard-issue Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage.

      Definitely five stars! I used spicy turkey sausage because DH can't have pork, and Besan (Chickpea Flour) Pastry for the pastry to make it gluten free. Thank you for posting this keeper!
