With four boys and one girl in this house, it’s an understatement to tell you that we are not a family for fanciness. I mean, don’t get me wrong, we teach our boys manners and how to properly behave in public, but “pinterest mom” I am not. No one cares. They just want to eat…which leads me to this Sausage Quiche. I like to cook ahead for our breakfast and this Sausage Quiche is perfect for that. However, when I use the word Quiche my boys look at me like I have a horn growing out of my head. So, this is how I turn the conversation:
Me: Would you like Sausage Quiche for breakfast?
Boy 3: No. (Looking at me like I have a horn growing out of my head.)
Me: Okay. Would you like some egg pie?
Boy 3: Yes! That sounds great!
Ha! They have NO idea that I’ve just renamed the exact same thing. Whatever. They eat and they are happy. Call it what you will. I call it done.
One of my favorite things about this recipe it that it makes four quiches instead of just one. This gives a lot of freedom with the recipe and it’s absolutely no more trouble to make four of these than to make just one. Let’s dive into the recipe…shall we?!?
These little bags of frozen diced onions and green peppers are a lifesaver. I use them all the time. I buy these at Kroger. PS-In case you’re wondering, Kroger is not paying me to say this. I wish.
Add both bags of veggies and two pounds of sausage and cook it in a skillet until the sausage is done. Does raw meat gross anyone else out?!? Bleh. So gross. But, some people are visual learners, so here’s the photo.
Drain the grease and then divide the cooked sausage and veggies into four uncooked pie shells.
Top with cheese.
And then add the eggs and place it in the oven.
Bake these at 350 for 30-45 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the middle is not “wiggly”. (Is that a word??) After cooking these for about 20 minutes I rotate them in my oven so the one of the bottom does not overcook.
There you have it. I don’t care if you call it Quiche or Egg Pie…just make this. Keep them for yourself, give one to a friend, freeze it, make it ahead for breakfast…whatever. Just enjoy!
