Theresa's StoryThis was created out of desperation of empty cupboards when I was in my early 20s. Since the original was created, a couple of variations have come about by switching an ingredient... such as the soup could be cream of mushroom, cheddar cheese, cream of potato, or cream of broccoli.
It always becomes someone's new favorite after just one bite.
premade pie crust (frozen) top and bottom
bulk sausage, (pork or turkey)

broccoli, bunch (or thawed out frozen)
yellow onion, chopped
cheddar cheese, shredded
cream of broccoli soup
1Brown sausage meat and put aside. Poke holes with fork in bottom of pie shell. When the sausage is cooled add to the bottom of the pie shell. If mixed through out, the bottom crust tends to get soggy.
2Add over meat layer, broccoli clusters, onions, and garlic. Then cover with half the cheddar then the soup. Top off with the remaining cheddar. Add top crust of pie. Vent with a few slices near center.
3Bake at 350 degrees until toasty brown color. Should be between a half hour to 40 minutes. Serve warm.... though cold left overs (if any) are irresistible nibbles every-time the fridge is opened.

So glad I found this recipe by accident in the dessert section! Add an egg or two, use just the bottom crust, and it would be a great broccoli-sausage quiche! Can't wait to try it! Thanks, Theresa!

Glad you found it :) Quiche sounds good though the broccoli probably would come out better precooked. Let us know how it turns out. In the recipe I didn't mention my preferred pie shell is whole wheat, it just fits well. My sister uses Deep Dish, as it fits more broccoli. Theresa
