Sausage Garden Quiche Recipe

Sausage Garden Quiche Recipe

This quiche is my favorite! I sometimes omit the sausage and add more garden fresh ingredients. It reheats nicely in the microwave, which I find especially handy after a busy day working as a postmaster in our small town.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach or Swiss chard
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash pepper
  • 6 frozen fully cooked breakfast sausage links
  • 3 slices fresh tomato, halved

Directions

  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of pie plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove the foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on wire rack.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and milk. Stir in spinach, cheese, onion, chives, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Carefully pour into crust.
  • 3. Cook sausage according to package directions. Arrange sausage in a spoke pattern in egg mixture; place tomato slices between links. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
