Basic Sausage Quiche

My hubby loves quiche- and I do too! The kids are hit-or-miss for the most part, but I love the stuff. It's super easy to make and you can either bake and serve it or bake and freeze for later. Sometimes I'll bake and slice it, wrap each slice and put those in the freezer. It makes a lightning-fast breakfast for hubby (or me) on weekdays. The following recipe gives you the basic idea, but you can play with it and find just the right combination of veggies/meat/cheeses that you like the best. (Oh, and don't be afraid to put ketchup on it when you eat it if you like it on your scrambled eggs like me!)

Basic Sausage Quiche


1 pound bulk pork sausage, cooked and crumbled
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shells
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/3 cup chopped green pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cooked crumbled sausage in a large mixing bowl. Fold in both cheeses.  Place one pie shell in a pie plate.  Place half the sausage mixture in the pie shell. Place the other pie shell in a pie plate.  Pour rest of the sausage mixture in the shell.   Whisk eggs, milk, onion and both peppers in a separate bowl, making sure eggs are blended in well.  Pour half the egg mixture over the first pie shell and mixture.  Pour the rest of the egg mixture over the other pie shell.  Bake one hour or until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
