Good Eats: Sausage and Cheese Quiche

After eating a breakfast of sticky icky bacon and chocolate chip banana bread, I decided to whip up a quick quiche so that I’d have something to munch on while downing mimosas. What’s a snow day without mimosas? It’s boring. That’s what it is – boring. 

As a rule, I try to avoid making my own pie crust. It’s a tedious task that often results in a crust not as good as you want it to be. You know who makes a great pie crust? Pillsbury. Their roll out pie crust bakes up flaky and buttery and one package includes 2 pie crusts. Awesome.  Now, your basic quiche is simply eggs, cream/milk, and cheese. You can add meat, vegetables, or multiple cheeses. Yesterday, I opted to combine half of a beef kielbasa sausage, some onion, and a mix of mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.

Recipe:

1 cup light cream
1/2 cup mozzarella and parmesan cheese
4 eggs
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
1/2 white onion, diced
1/2 beef kielbasa sausage, diced
1 Pillsbury pie crust
1/2 tsp minced garlic

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.) In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and cheeses. Set aside.

3.) In a saucepan, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onion and garlic. Cook until the onion appears transparent. Add in the sausage and cook until sausage is lightly browned.

4.) Layer the sausage and onion mix with the egg and cream mix. Cook in oven for 60 minutes.

After about  45 minutes, I usually check the crust of the quiche to see if it is getting brown. I tend to place the pie  dish on the top rack in the oven for the first 45 minutes, and then place it on the bottom rack for the last 15 minutes to cook.

Enjoy with the mimosa of your choice.
