Country Boy Breakfast Quiche

Country Boy Quiche

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!
