Friday Feast: Part Tres

I love breakfast. But I usually don't get a chance to make anything elaborate because when the Lanford household is hungry, they need to eat. Right Now.

So, sometimes we have breakfast for dinner.
Carys always exclaims "Mommy! Breakfast for dinner?!? That's not right!"
Oh do I love breaking the rules!
We love pancakes and sausage and all the yummy stuff. But tonight we're having my famous quiche. And man, am I looking forward to that!

This quiche is easy to make, but the cook time is a little too long for those of us who don't really get up early enough to prepare, bake & preoccupy a few starvin' people. Sleeping is, evidently, a very hunger-inducing process.
You can make it the night before and keep the egg mixture in a ziploc bag for the next morning. (Unfortunately, I only have the forethought to do this when it's Christmas Eve for our Christmas breakfast feast.)

Skye's Quiche

9 inch frozen deep-dish pie crust
1 pound sausage, cooked & drained well
1 cup cheese (I mostly use Monterrey-Jack, but Cheddar works well too)
1 large can of sliced mushrooms (or you can substitute 1 cup of peeled apples - YUM!)
1/2 chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prick bottom of pie crust & bake for about 8 minutes.
Turn down heat to 325 degrees.
Combine sausage, cheese, mushrooms & spices. Spoon into pie crust.
Beat eggs well, pour over sausage mixture.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 50 minutes or until set. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.

Pair it with a simple side salad, and FEAST!
