Sausage-Cheddar Quiche - printable recipe

sausage cheddar quiche

Sausage-Cheddar Quiche
This is one of our favorite meals. The recipe is always requested when we share it with others!

We usually make a few quiche at a time, they are perfect for sharing!
They come together really quick when the ingredients are prepped 
ahead of time.

I almost always have chopped onions, green peppers and mushrooms 
in the freezer. You could even pre-measure these ingred. & freeze them 
just for this recipe!

When we buy meat, it is usually in bulk and I brown some up for this & 
other quick recipes.

quiche prep

If we have some homemade pie crusts made, we use 'em, if not, store bought works just fine. 
After the crust is fit into the pie plate, you'll need to pop it in the oven for a few minutes.

Then dump in your cooled meat, veggies & spices. I love "dump" recipes.

Mix up your eggs & milk and pour it over your meat mixture. You'll have floaters but that's OK it all comes together in the end.

Then pop it in the oven and the YUMMI-ness just happens. 
I hope you'll give it a try, there's a printable recipe below.
