Cinnamon Apple and Maple Sausage Quiche
This is my favorite breakfast quiche that can certainly also be served with a small side salad for a delicious lunch. The cinnamon apples are complimented by the hint of maple in the breakfast sausage.BASE FOR QUICHE: Whisk together: 4 Eggs, whole 1 cup Half and Half Salt and Pepper In a hot pan sauté for 3-4minutes: 1 Tabl. Butter 2 Apples, thinly sliced 1 tsp. Cinnamon Remove apples from pan, add to pan and cook: 6 Maple Breakfast Sausage links , cut into pieces
Place the Sausage on the bottom of your pre-baked HOT crust. Pour the egg mixture above, on top of sausage leaving room to add apples. Arrange the apples on top in a decorative manner (or not) . Bake in 350 degree oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until knife comes out clean when stuck into the center. Use a knife to trim the top edges of the quiche crust now that it has baked to make it nice. Cool for 10 minutes before serving so it will set up a bit.
* You may have extra “base” leftover when filling a tart shell because of the ingredients you have chosen to add. Don’t over-fill the crust.
