I have kinda been waiting for my friend to get back to me. She gave me this recipe many many years ago and I don't know if she still makes it but I do from time to time. A couple of ladies have asked me for it and so Randy I hope you don't mind but I'm sharing.
Sausage Quiche - 375 oven
- 1 unbaked pie shell 9"
- 1-lb. of reduced fat Original Sausage [Jimmy Dean]
- 1/2 C Onions, chopped fine
- 1/3 C Green Pepper, chopped fine
- 1 1/2 C or 8 to 10 oz. pkg grated Colby or Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Tbs. Flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 C Evaporated Milk
- 1 Tbs. Parsley Flakes
- 3/4 C Lawry's Seasoned Salt [important]
- 1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
- 1/4 tsp. Pepper
Get out your skillet. Put a small amount of oil in it. [I hope you're using Canola Oil]Just enough to cover the bottom. This sausage has no fat and you don't want it to stick. Add the Sausage, Onion and Green Pepper and cook until the Sausage is done. Chop it up with a spatula so you don't have chunks of meat. When done take off the heat and blot with a paper towel in case there is any fat, set aside.
In a big bowl dump all of the cheese and flour. Toss together. When the Sausage, onion and peppers are cool, not cold but cool, add them to the cheese flour mixture and toss. Set aside.
In a small bowl beat the eggs, then add the milk, flakes, seasoned salt, garlic salt and pepper, beat together. Set aside.
Now it's time to put the sausage mixture into the unbaked crust. Pat it around so it is evenly distributed then pour the egg mixture over all. It won't look like enough but it will be.
Set it on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until browned and filling is set. Test it with a table knife if you like or bump it with your hand and see if it wiggles. I don't but I've been making this for a long time. The original recipe called for 3/4 pound of sausage links but I never had that and then there was the problem of what to do with the dab that was left so I just changed it a bit. It's very tasty and really easy. Once you have it together and can wash up and have no other pans to fool with. I always make a green salad with it.
[I will give you my recipe for pie crust at another time if any one wants it. It's a no fail, just takes practice] Hope you enjoy this little Quiche. It's not fancy but it is real good.
