Country Quiche
Recipe adapted from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood (c) Clarkson Potter 2010

Prep Time:10 minInactive Prep Time: — Cook Time:40 min
Level:
Easy
Serves:
16 servings

Ingredients
1 pound ground pork sausage with sage
1 teaspoon baking powder
20 grape tomatoes, sliced in half and sprinkled with salt
6 large eggs
10 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (about 2 1/2 cups)
Salt and pepper
Two 9-inch unbaked frozen pie shells (set them out to thaw while preparing the other ingredients)
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Then remove with a slotted spoon and reserve.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the baking powder, tomatoes and eggs together. Add the cooked sausage and the cheese to the egg mixture and stir together with a large spoon. Add salt and pepper and divide the mixture between both unbaked pie shells. Bake until the filling is set, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook’s Notes: To lighten up this quiche, use turkey sausage and egg substitute.

Garth likes this quiche with cheese tortellini. If you add tortellini, cover with egg or the pasta will burn when the quiche bakes.
