2. Ingredients for Sausage and Cheese Quiche

  • 1 frozen pie shell
  • 8 oz. breakfast sausage (removed from casings)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 oz. shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese (2 oz. per 1/2 cup)
  • 2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese (2 oz. per 1/2 cup)

3. Directions:

3.1 Preheat

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Move a rack to the lowest position in the oven.

3.2 Prep

Poke the bottom of the frozen pie shell several times with a fork, and transfer to a baking sheet.

3.3 Oven

Bake the pie shell on bottom rack of oven until the bottom is slightly puffed, 12-14 minutes, or according to package directions. When done, remove from oven and set aside.

Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F.

3.4 Prep

Place two sheets of paper towels on a large dinner plate. Set aside.

3.5 Stove

Set a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the sausage in the skillet. Cook until browned, using a rubber spatula to break up the sausage into small pieces as it cooks, 5-7 minutes.

3.6 Prep

Transfer the sausage to the paper-towel-lined dinner plate to drain.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, salt, and black pepper, until smooth.

Add the sausage and shredded cheeses to the egg and milk mixture. Fold with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed.

Pour the egg, sausage, and cheese mixture into the pie shell. Cover the edges of the pie shell with pie guards or strips of aluminum foil to avoid burning or over-browning the crust.

3.7 Oven

Bake the quiche on bottom rack of oven until the top is firm and golden brown, 45-55 minutes.

3.8 Check

Check to see that quiche is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.

3.9 Serve

Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes at room temperature before slicing and serving. Leftover quiche may be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
