Sausage, Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Quiche


This dinner was inspired byMeeta who is hosting another
Monthly Mingle. This time the challenge is to make
One Dish Dinners.



Sausage, Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Quiche
I used an already baked pie crust to save time
but if you are good at making a pie crust
go for it.


Filling :
Jimmy Deans Sage Sausage
8 strips lean bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half or whole milk
1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Preparation:
Cook the sausage in a skillet breaking
it into small pieces while you cook it.
Drain off the oil and set aside.
Cook the bacon. Again drain off the excess oil.
Then in a small bowl
whisk together the eggs, milk, thyme,
and pepper.
Add the sausage, bacon and cheddar cheese.
Pour into the crust.

Bake at 375° for about 30 minutes,
or until quiche filling is set
and top is lightly browned.




This is a One Dish Wonder!!



Cooked to perfection!
