To remind my daughter of wintertime in her home state, I planned a snowman theme brunch while visiting her in central California. This flavorful quiche sparked with spicy sausage and peppers got a reception that was far from chilly!

"This is one of my favorite recipes. I make as directed, but for the 2nd quiche, I add spinach. I also use the refrigerated roll-out pie crust."

"Delicious!!! Have made this numerous times. I leave out the veggies because my family does not care for them and bake in a 9x13 pan for about 45 min or till knife comes out clean. Many compliments on this one and someone always asks for the recipe."

"I have been making this quiche since Taste of Home first published it many years ago. It is our family's favorite and now my children's families make it for special occasions. You can make it up the night before and pop it in the over in the morning. Everyone loves it. If you don't want it spicy you can always replace the spicy sausage with mild. But we love the spicy. Great recipe"
