Having done some catering, I especially appreciate interesting, appetizing finger foods. I'm constantly asked to make these popular squares to serve at parties. They're almost like a zippy, crustless quiche. -Linda Wheeler, Middleburg, Florida

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper, optional
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook and crumble sausage until no longer pink; drain. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Layer with cheeses, onion, green chiles and, if desired, jalapeno. In a bowl, beat eggs and seasonings. Pour over cheese layer.
  2. Bake, uncovered, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 18-22 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes; cut into 1-in. squares.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
