Each different kind of sausage brings its own unique flavor to the dish that will be taken on by the less flavorful egg and milk. One of the most common sausages to add to any quiche recipe is Italian sausage.
There are two main things that make Italian sausage a great choice. The herbs often used in the sausage add a delicate and tasty flavor to the dish and add some seasoning for you.
The overall flavor of the sausage, however, isn’t strong enough to completely overpower the spinach and the egg making it the perfect addition to this quiche.
Because the flavors of sausage and spinach are relatively gentle and delicate, adding any other ingredients that have a strong flavor will be overpowering and will change the whole flavor of the dish.
The addition of leek is a great option that adds to the flavor rather than taking it away. The leek offers a stronger flavor than a white or red onion does but is sweeter than garlic.
The sweetness complements the sausage and the spinach perfectly while maintaining a little tanginess.
If you have made a plain Italian sausage and spinach quiche multiple weeks in a row and are getting bored with it, the simple addition of tomatoes can breathe new life into the recipe.

There are many benefits to using a herby sausage such as Italian, however, there are just as many benefits to using pork bulking sausage in your quiche.

This is a great way to add a little bit of excitement to a regular midweek meal. Despite the huge boost in flavor that a hash brown crust provides, making it actually requires very little extra effort to make.
If you or your family are beginning to get bored with quiches, this recipe can be a great way to make them fall in love with them again without having to make a more complicated recipe.
