Back Woods Breakfast Pie
(6 servings) Printable Version
Place crust on baking sheet. Scatter sausage around bottom of crust. Top with potatoes, onions, bell peppers and cheese.
Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended; pour over sausage-potato mixture in crust. Bake 30 minutes or until egg mixture is cooked and crust is lightly browned.
Sprinkle with additional cheese and peppers, if desired.
A hearty, satisfying breakfast pie. After you cook the sausage, it's just a matter of putting everything in a pie crust and baking for 30 minutes.

You can make this without the pie crust. Just put everything in a well-grease pie plate. We make this (or very close variations) all the time.

Easy and fun breakfast with the kids. Just enough ingredients for everyone to have a job. :)

This looks fantastic! Ya'know, we never had a breakfast on Thanksgiving. Even as a kid I was up early with the smell of Turkey in the oven, my male cousins would come over and we'd take off into the woods for a hike until dinner was done. I think this year I am going to make this for breakfast! Thank-you!

We make a similar dish - called breakfast pizza. We use crescent roll dough and add a few TBLS of parmesan cheese to the top. We also press the potatos with a towel/ppr towels to decrease moisture. Everything but the eggs can be prepared and assembled the night before, cover in plastic wrap and regrigerate. Add eggs/milk to top in morning and bake. EVERYONE loves this recipe, so make plenty. We use is for every brunch and holiday breakfasts.

From cooking teacher
I made this for our school pitch-in. Everyone loved it. I accidentally used 1/4 cup of Green and Red peppers---I need to use my bifocals more often. It tasted great with the alteration and the color was magnificent! I would also like to add that the recipe was very easy to follow. I would highly recommend this recipe even for a novice.

This is the best quick and easy breakfast pie! It is so good any time of the day! I teach and all my friends beg me to make this when we do a breakfast! It is great for Christmas with the red and green veggie colors! You'll love it!

My son and I loved it. However we assembled it and baked it on a pie plate. It was even good the next day as a leftover. Yummy

It was good but I would have like for there to be a picture in this page to show me how it would have comed out to be.
