Quiche !
Topic: Recipes

Busy, busy, busy...right?

It's time to do an annual review of a classic dish, with a spin. I am reminding you about both the simplicity and elegance of a quiche. This versatile dish can be served as breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or appetizer.

It can be as complicated as making a homemade crust in a specialized quiche pan, with imported cheses and multi-prep of additional fillings. 

Or--you can use a premade, frozen 9" deep dish pie crust and scrounge the refrigerator and freezer and find great additions with minimal prep time.

My quiche today is the latter. I wanted a quiche available in the refrigerator, from which I could take slices and microwave as a substantive breakfast/brunch in between shoveling snow! And, all the ingredients were right in my refrigerator and freezer!

Spinach- Spicy Sausage-Cheddar Quiche 

Defrost a 9" deep dish piecrust. Crimp up the pastry lip around the edge of the pan. (see photo). Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a 2 cup measuring cup, crack 4 eggs and measure milk to make 1 and 1/2 cup total volume. Put this into a mixing bowl and whisk thoroughly. ( you'll remember that this is basic quiche and you can now add any additions you'd like to)

Put the picresut on a baking pan with a layer of aluminum foil underneath, just in case it cooks over (it shouldn't, but "just in case") 

 Add 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach to the egg mixture. 

Cook 3 Spicy sausage patties in the microwave as directed. Cool and dice them up  Add to the mixture.

Add 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese to the egg mixture.

Add 1 Tbsp. minced onion.

Add freshly ground pepper or dash of nutmeg to taste. 

Pour this mixture into the piecrust.  

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, until eggs are fully set.
