Cheesy Shrimp and Sausage Quiche The Southern Lady Cooks

This quiche is so easy! You basically just mix everything up and bake it. Seriously, it’s THAT easy.  The smoked paprika along with the smoked sausage really add to this dish. It’s very flavorful which makes it the perfect dish to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I also like to serve this quiche when I host a brunch.

Ingredients Needed for Cheesy Shrimp and Sausage Quiche

9 inch pie crust

Medium-size shrimp, cooked, deveined, tail off.

Smoked sausage, sliced and halved

Red onion

Shredded sharp cheese


Evaporated milk


Smoked paprika

Garlic powder


Recipe Notes: I like this quiche garnished with sour cream and a bit of hot sauce. This quiche reheats well if you happen to have leftovers. This recipe is versatile in that you could use Andouille sausage in place of the smoked sausage. You could also use any flavor cheese that your family enjoys.

Recipe Comments: “I made this for a brunch and everyone raves about it. I did garnish without sour cream as you suggested and it was great.”-Terry
