how to make Hearty and Delicious Breakfast Quiche Recipe ? very simple very yummy.
- 1-9 store bought regular single pie crust
- 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
- 2 links of hot or sweet Italian sausage
- 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 large potato, peeled
- 4 ozs shredded Mozzarella or jack cheese
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
Precook pie crust according to package directions. Set aside to cool. When pie crust is cooled, spread Parmesan cheese over the bottom of the crust.
Remove sausage from casings and break up into small bite size pieces. Fry sausage and bell peppers in skillet over medium heat until sausage is well browned and no longer pink inside.
Meanwhile, cut potatoes into bite size pieces. Place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap. Poke a few holes in the plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 6 to 7 minutes.
Lightly beat the eggs with a wire wisk. Add the half-and-half and milk. Blend until smooth. Set aside
Place sausage and bell peppers on bottom of crust. Add the potatoes. Top with Mozzarella cheese and green onions. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the the filling. Place quiche on a cookie sheet and carefully slide into a 400° oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top of the quiche is puffed up and browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm.
Note: For a vegetarian take on this quiche, you may want to use just the bell peppers and the cheeses. You chop up about 4 large green and red bell peppers. Saute them with 1/2 cup of chopped onions in a tablespoon of olive oil for about 10 to 12 minutes and follow the above directions, minus the sausage.
Some say that the peppers should go into the quiche uncooked. You can certainly throw the peppers in uncooked if you like. However, I feel cooking the peppers really releases a great flavor that they just don’t have when they are raw. You be the judge.
