Sausage Quiche Squares Recipe

Having done some catering, I especially appreciate interesting, appetizing finger foods. I'm constantly asked to make these popular squares to serve at parties. They're almost like a zippy quiche. -Linda Wheeler, Middleburg, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:32 servings


  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper, optional
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink; drain. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Layer with cheeses, onion, chilies and jalapeno if desired. In a bowl, beat eggs and seasonings. Pour over cheese.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; cut into 1-in. squares. Yield: about 8 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"I made this two more times with two different kinds of sausage, and I actually like it best with the ham I used originally."

"This was excellent. I substituted ham for the sausage(using up leftovers!) and cut it into dinner serving-sized pieces. I imagine it would be just as good as an appetizer."

"I mix all the ingredients together instead of layering them. Sometimes I bake it in muffin tins to make individual servings."
