Friday Five: Crustless Breakfast Quiche!

This is another GREAT breakfast meal to feed a crowd (a.k.a. just my family) and even prepare in advance. Just cook it up a day ahead of time, and then bring to room temp and reheat for a few minutes in a 250 degree oven. Easy as pie....or should I say, quiche?

NOTE: There are so many adaptations for this recipe so experiment according to your liking. These are just some basic ingredients to get you started (and to keep it eligible for the "Friday Five!") This goes great alongside these biscuits! This recipe makes two pies.

*12 - 15 eggs, scrambled
*1/2 lb cooked ground breakfast sausage
*1/2 cup shredded cheese (any blend you prefer, I used Colby-jack because that's what I had on hand)
*1/2 cup cubed potatoes, cooked (I used leftover roasted potatoes. You could quickly boil some to soften them up for this recipe. You could also brown some in the pan first, and cook for a bit with the lid on... just don't use raw potatoes, they'll never cook all the way through.)

Fill a deep pie dish with the sausage, cheese, and potatoes. Season your egg mixture with salt & pepper to taste. Pour into pie dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes or until lightly golden and a toothpick comes out clean. MANGIA!!!

I stumbled upon your blog and found a place like home! I love everything about it. You are inspiring me to do things like my momma did years ago before she became so americanized. <3

I am so glad! Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE learning all the ways my grandma used to do things. I'll be sure to teach my kids early, so they don't have to struggle figuring it all out like I am! (when I have NO time!!!) Buona Fortuna! Ciao!
