Monday Dinner ~ Easy Sausage Quiche


Breakfast this morning was cereal with milk, while lunch today was Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Vegetable Beef Soup. 

I'm still in the process of using some things we had left over after the Christmas holidays and today I decided to use up two of those items, which were the last can of Grands biscuits and two frozen pie crusts. Using these items along with one of the two pound rolls of sausage I bought last week allowed me to accomplish two tasks with one effort.

Dinner tonight was an Easy Sausage Quiche. The recipe I use calls for one half to one pound of sausage, and so I thawed out one of the two pound rolls I recently bought. First off, I made eight sausage patties and browned those while the biscuits were cooking. Then using the same skillet, I went ahead and browned the rest of the sausage for the quiches.


Afterwards I assembled the Quiches and put those in the oven to bake, and then assembled the the sausage biscuits and stored them in the refrigerator for breakfasts this week. This recipe for quiche makes two pies and we ate one for dinner and will save the other one to heat up for lunches or breakfast this week. 

Here is a picture of the finished quiches:


And, here is the recipe:

Layer each one with 1/4 cup of cheese. 
Mix together eggs and sour cream and pour 1/2 over each pie crust.
Top both quiches with the remainder of the cheese.
