Breakfast Sausage Quiche

This recipe will make 2 quiches 8inches each. Please see my Pie Crust recipe for a perfect flaky no blind bake crust, or use store bought crust for an easier shortcut. A lot of  technique behind a quiche recipe is doing it by eye. What you’ll need depends on many things, from the size of the eggs used, to the type of oven and placement of the oven shelf. Have fun with this recipe!

Lifestyle Tip! I love to make a few quiches for a quick and easy brunch dish! I throw some mini pastries ( I use store bought but definitely homemade would be delicious!), cut up fresh fruit (fruit salad), and a baked ham on a table and Brunch is served! Quiche can be made ahead of time, up to about 2-3 days in advance to maintain ultimate freshness. cover top in foil and bake at 250 for about 15 minutes to warm a made ahead quiche. To add a special little touch to brunch, you can set up a waffle iron (or 2) and a pitcher with a lid and a wide mouth filled with Belgian Waffle mix. Another special touch is to blend a little bit of white sugar and various fruits (frozen or fresh). Put your fruit mix in little bowls next to fruit juices and sparkling wine, Champagne, or sparkling water as drinks for your brunch. Yum!

Money Saving Tip! Dollar stores have sets of durable plastic champagne or wine glasses (they also have glass) for about $1 each!
