Christmas Morning Pie

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 55 min.


12-16 servings

I first made this festive breakfast pie when entertaining friends on Christmas morning. Each year I was asked to make my famous "Christmas Morning Pie" and the name stuck! But because of its great flavor, I make it year-round.


  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 unbaked pastry shells (9 inches)
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine sausage and cheese. Place half of mixture in each pastry shell. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, onion and pepper.
  2. Pour half over sausage in each shell. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
