Almost Everything In Your Breakfast
Turns Into
Everything-In-The-Breakfast Quiche

Everything-in-the-breakfast quiche – just by looking at the name, I bet you can guess what the ingredients are.  

Have you heard of a statement, “The easiest and the most common dish is the most difficult dish to make it great.”?

Everything-in-the-breakfast quiche...that's right.  Turn everything in your breakfast into another delicious and cheap easy meal

Prep Time: 5 Minutes   Cook Time: 10 Minutes (Stove Top);
45 Minutes (Oven) 
Serving: 4-6



Quiche always reminds me about the traditional Chinese dish, steamed eggs.  Instead of adding milk and bake, Chinese adds water and steam.  In my opinion, quiche and Chinese steamed eggs fall under the category of what the statement says.

I always had the hard time to figure out how to bake a quiche and the crust stays crispy.  I happened to read a recipe in a magazine that I finally grabbed the trick of how to make one. 

These are the basic ingredients, i.e. 6 eggs, 2/3 cup of milk and 1 cup of cheese.  You can put anything in a quiche with no limitation, except your imaginations.

I went back home and looked for the staples in my fridge.  Then, this recipe was created. 

Most of the ingredients in this everything-in-the-breakfast quiche recipe always come in a package.  You always have leftover after making one quiche.  Therefore, it allows you to make two quiches. 

If you serve brunch for a big crowd, make 2 of them in one shot. You spend about the same time and effort to make 2 instead of one.  Including the coffee and other drinks, you can serve 8-12 people within $25.  Doesn’t it sound great?

Ingredients

1 Store-bought 9-inch deep dish pie crust
6 Eggs (beaten)
1 Cup Shredded Yellow Cheddar Cheese
2/3 Cup Milk
1 Pack (8 ounces) Pre-cooked Breakfast Sausage Links (bite size)

1 ½ - 2 Cups (about 8 ounces) Store-Bought Roasted Potato Wedges (frozen; I use OreIda Olive Oil and Sea Salt Homestyle wedges)
1 teaspoon Dried Parsley Flakes

A slice of delicious Everything-in-the-breakfast quiche

(Side note - I found that the sizes are very extreme from one brand to another.  Here is measurement guidance.  If a wedge is about an inch wide and 2-3 inches long, you may need 4-6 wedges.)


Seasonings

1 pinch of Salt
¼ teaspoon Black Pepper

  1. Move a rack to the middle of the oven and preheat it at 325F
  2. Heat a saucepan at medium high heat
  3. Brown sausage in the pan about 5-8 minutes
  4. Add potatoes and stir
  5. Cook until the potatoes thawed and a bit warm, but not cooked, about 2-3 minutes
  6. Add black pepper and stir to combine
  7. Turn off the heat and remove the pan from the heat source to cool down a bit, about 5 minutes
  8. In a separate mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and parsley together
  9. Put the pie crust on a baking sheet for easy clean up later in case the filling spill
  10. Transfer sausage and potatoes into the crust and spread out evenly
  11. Top with cheese
  12. Pour egg mixture slowly into the crust
  13. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes until a knife inserted at the center and come out clean
  14. If it is not cooked through, bake for another 5-10 minutes
  15. Let it sit for 3 minutes and serve


TIPS

The sausage and potatoes are very salty.  So, go easy with the salt.
