This is a simple recipe I made a few months back that I’d like to share. The night I cooked this my husband was baffled by this dish. He had never heard of a quiche before. I was baffled that he didn’t know what a quiche was because eggs are one of his favorite foods. Anyways this dish is a huge hit with him and he can level this by himself in 2 days. As much as he loves it, he refuses to call it a quiche. He calls it an egg pie, which is adequate, I suppose. 🙂
It is a very filling dish and is great after a morning hunt!
-Pre-made deep dish pie crust
– 6 eggs
-1 lb cooked ground breakfast sausage (I prefer spicy)
– 1/2 diced onion
-1/2 diced jalapeno
-1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper
– 4 tbsp of your favorite salsa (I used a roasted bell pepper salsa)
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Beat the eggs and all other ingredients together in a medium size bowl.
***Put your pie crust/pie pan on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. This will save you from making a mess when putting it into the oven and makes it much easier to get out. No oven mitt thumb prints in the pie! 🙂
Pour egg mixture into pie crust.
Bake till golden for about 30-40 minutes! Keep an eye on it!
For added flavor and garnish, top it with a spoonful of your salsa!
