Real Food, Real Taste and Gluten-Free: Bistro Sensations

Bistro Sensations Smoked Mozzarella SausagesI love it when something good happens by accident. But when something great happens by chance, well then – I’m going to tell everyone.

I was in Wal-Mart and saw Bistro Sensations Smoked Mozzarella with Artichoke and Garlic fully cooked chicken sausage in the refrigerated section. I have no idea why I picked up the package. When I turned it over, surely enough, it said gluten-free. That was all I needed to see! I was also pleased that they contained no soy (although they are not labeled as soy-free).

When we got home, we put those sausages on the grill. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best): I give them an 11. Even my gluten-mongering spouse loved them. Great flavor, great texture…I felt like a normal person eating normal food. That doesn’t happen too often.

The sausages were not greasy. The seasonings were just right. We had 1-1/2 sausages each with some beans. That left one sausage. I decided to make a crustless quiche with it the next night.

There are no seasonings other than salt in the following recipe because I wanted the flavor from the sausage to be the feature of the dish.

Sausage & Cauliflower Crustless Quiche (Gluten-Free)

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup of cooked cauliflower
  • 1 Bistro Sensations sausage link
  • Salt
  • Dash of milk or half and half
  • 1 cup of Italian shredded cheese
  • Pam for grilling or oil


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease pie pan.
  • Chop up cauliflower and sausage.
  • Spread half of each on the bottom of the pan.
  • Beat eggs.
  • Add milk/cream and salt. Beat some more.
  • Add shredded cheese and stir.
  • Pour 3/4s of the egg mixture into the pie pan.
  • Scatter the other half of the cauliflower and sausage evenly through out the pan.
  • Pour the rest of the egg mixture into the pan, covering the rest of the ingredients.
  • Cook for 30 minutes.

Let sit for about 5 minutes to set, then cut and enjoy. Makes 4 generous slices as a main course.
