To remind my daughter of wintertime in her home state, I planned a snowman theme brunch while visiting her in central California. This flavorful quiche sparked with spicy sausage and peppers got a reception that was far from chilly!


  • 1 pound bulk mild pork sausage
  • 1/4 pound bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 cups 4% cottage cheese
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional
  • Green and sweet red pepper strips, optional


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, beat eggs, cheeses, flour, butter and baking powder. Stir in mushrooms, onion, chilies and sausage.
  2. Transfer to two greased 9-in. round baking dishes (dishes will be full). Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired. Bake at 375° for 33-38 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Garnish with pepper strips if desired.
