Anytime Quiche

Quiche is something that can be enjoyed any time of day. It makes a good hearty breakfast to start the day with fresh fruit on the side. Of an evening, add a small dinner salad and piece of garlic bread and you have a delicious evening meal. Although most quiches are made with half-n-half which make them richer, I prefer to reduce fat and calories by using skim milk. The quiche will "set" just as well.

Ingredients

1
refrigerated pie crust
1/2 lb
sausage
6 slice
bacon
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1-1 1/2 c
chopped onions, green pepper, and mushroom mixture
5 large
eggs
1 c
skim milk
1/8 tsp
garlic powder
1 pinch
salt
1 pinch
pepper
1 1/4 c
shredded cheese

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven using directions on pie crust box. Unroll crust preferably into a quiche baking pan. Using fork, poke holes in the pie crust. Bake for 5 minutes and remove from oven. Decrease oven temperature to 375 degrees.

2Brown sausage and drain on paper towel. In another skillet fry bacon crisp.

3In sausage skillet, add 1 tablespoon Olive Oil. Saute chopped veggie mix over medium heat until tender. Stir sausage into this and crumble bacon into the mixture as well.

4In a medium sized mixing bowl whisk together eggs, milk, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Add meat and veggie mixture to this and stir again.

5Add cheese into this mix and stir. I like to use reduced fat 2% Skim mozzarella, but mild cheddar or Swiss is also good.

6Pour all combined ingredients into pie shell and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.

7Let stand for 10 minutes and serve.
