Crustless Breakfast Quiche

My boyfriend and I decided that plane tickets were too expensive and travel was too messy to make the trek home to California for Christmas this year.  We knew it would be hard to be away from our families on such a memorable holiday, so we were sure to have a lot of good food and alcohol to lesson the pain.  On Christmas Eve we went to the famous Willard hotel for overpriced cocktails, then we cruised the National Tree display at the Whitehouse.  On Christmas morning, I popped on some Michael Buble' Christmas music, and prepped this simple quiche while he finished wrapping my presents...typical.  I popped it in the oven before we opened gifts and it was ready to eat just as we finished our first round of mimosas.

2 large turkey sausages (castings removed)
1/2 onion
1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried parsley
salt and pepper
1/2 cup frozen spinach (thawed)
1 medium tomato
4 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of reduced fat cheddar cheese
1/4 cup parmesean

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray.  On medium heat, saute' sausage, onion and seasonings until done.   In a large bowl, mix together the eggs and the milk.  Add the cooked sausage and onion, then add the sliced tomatoes and thawed, dried spinach.  Pour the entire mixture into the pie pan and sprinkle the cheeses on top.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly browned around the edges and the center is cooked through.
