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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat 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.
2
Brown sausage and drain on paper towel. In another skillet fry bacon crisp.
3
In 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.
4
In 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.
5
Add cheese into this mix and stir. I like to use reduced fat 2% Skim mozzarella, but mild cheddar or Swiss is also good.

Pour all combined ingredients into pie shell and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.
7
Let stand for 10 minutes and serve.
