I had some Lightlife Gimme Lean Sausage that I needed to use. And quiche sounded really good. This recipe turned out really well -- delicious!
Sausage Cheddar Quiche
3-1/2 oz. Gimme Lean Sausage (1/4 of one package)
1 pie crust, 9-inch (my crust recipe below)
2 C. whole milk (or unsweetened almond milk)
1/4 C. onion (half small onion)
1/4 C. Cheddar cheese (I used Veggie Slices grated cheddar)
1/8 t. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
1 salsa, optional
Bake pie crust according to the package directions and set aside (or make my recipe). Sauté sausage and onions in cooking oil or spray, then transfer to cooled pie shell. Sprinkle cheese over sausage and onions. Beat milk and eggs, add salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix together and pour over sausage, onions and cheese.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
2 C. flour
4 oz. butter/margarine, chopped (I use EarthBalance)
2-3 T. water
Mix by hand or in a food processor the flour and butter, adding water to make a dough. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. The dough will be crumbly. Place dough between pastry paper or plastic wrap and roll out with rolling pin to fit 8- or 9-inch tart pan. Bake in 350-degre oven for 15 minutes. Let cool.
