Quiche sounds so fancy and complicated but it's really simple to make. I love the fact that you can "make it your own" by changing one or two ingredients. The best part is that it can be made for breakfast lunch or dinner. Never any complaints at my house. That's for sure!

How to Make Country Sausage Quiche

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven according to pie crust instructions.

    Unroll pie crust and gently press into a pie plate crimping the edges using your fingers. Poke crust with a fork and bake the crust for approximately 5 minutes just to get it started.
  2. Meanwhile brown sausage in a medium skillet, drain on paper towel cool slightly.

    *I often use leftover chicken, roast beef, bacon bits, diced ham, sausage or a combination of two.
  3. While sausage is cooling use the same skillet to add 1 T olive oil & saute 1 - 1 1/2C mixed veggies diced in uniform pieces.

    I used 1/4 diced onion, 1/4 diced yellow bell pepper, 3 T. sliced mushrooms, 1/2 small zucchini diced. Let cool slightly.

    *any combination works: Chicken & broccoli or ground beef, onion, black olive w/salsa are some favorites*
  4. In a small mixing bowl combine eggs, half & half, red pepper flakes, mustard, garlic & onion powder, thyme, worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper and whisk really well.

    *using half & half (my favorite) or heavy cream makes this dish rich and decadent. Using milk just lightens this up a bit.
  5. Layer into pie shell browned meat, veggies, 1/2 of the shredded cheese & gently pour egg mixture over everything.

    Cover crust with foil and remove last 10 minutes of baking time.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes until middle is done.

    *I place the quiche on a large cookie sheet to avoid boil over/spills in my oven.
  7. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

    This is really good served room temperature too.
