New Year's Breakfast: Sausage and Cheddar Quiche

Happy 2010!

Here's a special recipe my family likes, in lieu of the traditional egg, cheese and bread casserole.  Add some fresh fruit, orange juice, and mimosas and you've got a fantastic breakfast for New Year's Day.

1 pie shell                                                   1 cup half and half (or milk)
3/4 - 1 c cooked pork sausage                    1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 c green onion (I use less)                      1/8 t pepper
1 T minced parsley                                     1/4 t salt
1/4 c chopped green pepper                        1 1/2 c cheddar
3 eggs                                                         1 T flour

Preheat oven to 325°.  Combine cooked sausage with green onion, green pepper, parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper and flour.  Mix well.  Spoon into pie shell and top with cheese.  Combine half & half (or milk) with eggs, beating until foamy.  Pour evenly over cheese.  Bake in 325° oven for 50 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned and quiche is set. 

Serves 6.

You can bake the quiche the night before and keep it in the refrigerator overnight.  Reheat at 250°/275° for 30-40 minutes.  (Check quiche after 15 minutes and increase temperature if middle is cold; raise to a maximum temp of 325°.)

I thought real men don't eat quiche... but this may be tempting enough to try.
