Meat Lovers Quiche

(4 servings)

  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1 small onion
  • 10 strips of bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 2/3 cup cream
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ready-to-fill pie crust (9 or 10 inches)
Form sausage balls with your sausage meat. Bring large pot of water to a boil; add sausage balls. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Drain and reserve.

Cut bacon into 2 inch squares and fry until crisp. Drain. Saute peppers and onions, drain. Beat eggs with cream and milk. Add salt and pepper. Scatter half the cheese in bottom of pie shell, cover with bacon, onions, and peppers.
Layer sausage balls next. Scatter the rest of the cheese. Gently pour egg mixture into shell over meats and cheese.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

If you love sausage and you love bacon, you're gonna love this quiche. I like to use Cheddar cheese but you could use Pepper Jack or any favorite cheese.
