Breakfast Sausage and Spinach Quiche Recipe (Paleo & Primal Options)

So, I’m sure you’re all getting ready for your Thanksgiving feast.  If you’re like me, you may have guests/family, in from out of town. My two sisters, brother-in-law, and little nephew are all coming to celebrate Thanksgiving with me.  I’ll actually be cooking for eight people this year.  To be sure I don’t spend all my valuable time in the kitchen, instead of catching up, I plan to make a few dishes ahead of time.  This Breakfast Sausage and Spinach Quiche is one of them.

I tested this recipe a few weeks ago; and, it held up really well.  I was able to refrigerate, reheat, and even freeze it, with no problem.  That makes it the perfect dish to serve my guests for breakfast.  It also packs well; so, if you’re traveling, you could easily bring it with you.
