Ever been on a mission to make something ahead of time to keep for the week you can just warm up a piece at a time? Well this was inspired by surfing sites and seeking ideas for fixin early and eating during the week. Hope you enjoy. I took a picture but it looked so "green" with the green pie dish and the spinach I need to use a clear or white pie then retake.

How to Make Sausage Crust Pie with Green Chilies


  1. Use the sausage as a crust, press it into the pie dish up the sides try to keep it uniform in thickness.
  2. Whisk eggs add salt and pepper
  3. Squeeze spinach dry then place in the bottom of the pie pan
  4. Add green chilies spreading gently so to keep spinach in place
  5. Gently pour eggs over spinach/chilies mixture
  6. Gently place cheese around pie more towards the outside it tends to melt into the middle.
  7. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes depending on your oven I found it was easier to put on a sheet pan to move around.
  8. When the middle is just about set it is ready to take out of the oven, let it cool for 10 minutes before cutting. I use a serrated knife. The crust was right at the stage of very firm and held up well.
  9. Will make this again and photo the steps!
  10. Alternative ideas: Jalapenos pickled are usually the best about one whole or 10 sliced then diced, 1/3 cup of onion maybe saute it first, 9 eggs alone, 1/2 cup Canadian bacon or 1/2 crispy bacon use your imagination.
