Sausage and Vegetable Quiche

Sausage and Vegetable Quiche

Quiche is not just for breakfast or brunch—this hearty sausage-vegetable pie is a great choice for a weeknight dinner. We've lightened the quiche by using turkey sausage, part-skim mozzarella cheese, and 2% reduced-fat milk instead of cream. We also replaced a whole egg with egg whites.
