Jimmy Dean: Sausage Spinach Ricotta Quiche

Jimmy Dean Crumbles: Sausage Spinach Ricotta Quiche #JDCrumbles
Jimmy Dean has fully cooked crumbles that are super convenient to use in your everyday recipes. They asked me to come up with a recipe using Jimmy Dean crumbles and even paid for the groceries!!  So, of course I jumped on it!!  Quiche is my hubby’s favorite meal and while I usually make broccoli bacon quiche, my mind went to a richer palate for this sausage challenge. I never made this combo before, but my goodness, it turned out delicious!!
