Turkey Sausage and Cheese Quiche

You know what I love about a good quiche? It's crazy simple, yet crazy good. And it can be made for pretty much any meal - just switch up the sides.

In a pie dish, layer in your shredded hash brown potatoes, oil, spices, bell pepper, onion and cooked turkey sausage.

Layer on some cheese. Everything is better with cheese.

Cover with beaten eggs.

Gently press your eggs down with a fork if you have any areas that try to beat the eggs to the surface.

Bake at 415 until the middle is set and your delicious quiche looks something like this:

I love the look of baked eggs with the little bursts of white here and there.
You can eat this hot out of the oven or after it's been chilled.
Turkey Sausage and Cheese Quiche
Serves 6-8
2 c. shredded hash brown potatoes (you could easily make your own by grating raw potatoes)
2 tbsp. oil
Salt and pepper to taste
----> Combine above ingredients and press into the bottom of a pie dish. Bake at 415 for about 15 minutes or until the hash brown shreds start to become golden and crispy.
1/4 bell pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1/4 - 1/2 lb. turkey sausage, cooked and drained of fat
1/2 - 1 cup of grated montery jack or cheddar cheese, depending on your addiction level to the golden goodness.
----> Layer the above ingredients onto the top of the cooked hash brown shreds.
6 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. milk
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp. chili powder
----> Combine eggs, milk and seasonings. Pour into the pie dish.
Bake at 415 until the center is set (no longer "wet" or jiggling when the pie dish is lightly shaken). Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into the quiche.

Cut into wedges and enjoy hot or chilled!
