Sausage Cheddar Mushroom Quiche

 

Sausage Cheddar Mushroom Quiche

If you love a good quiche, you must try this one! Sausage, cheddar, mushrooms, onions… it’s everything delicious in one place. Here is how to make it. Pre-heat oven to 400° degrees. If using store-bought pie crust follow package instructions to thaw. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; set aside.
 
Blind bake the crust: Take a 9 ½ inch quiche or deep dish pie plate, place prepared pastry for a single-crust pie. Tuck edges under and crimp. Place foil on the bottom of the pie crust and fill with uncooked rice (shown), beans, or pie weights. Pre-bake crust for 8 minutes at 400°. Remove foil and rice weight and bake for another 3 minutes. Remove from oven, and reduce baking temperature to 325° degrees.
 
 

In a medium skillet brown sausage until cooked throughout. Once cooked place sausage on a paper towel lined plate to drain. In the same skillet sauté chopped onions and mushrooms until onions are slightly translucent and mushrooms are tender; set aside to let cool.

In a medium mixing bowl combine cooked sausage, mushrooms, and onions with salt, pepper, dried basil, garlic powder, and cheese. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and milk together until combined. (TIP: the more you whisk the fluffier the Quiche, the less you whisk the more dense the Quiche).

Brush edges and bottom of blind baked crust with egg wash. Fill the partially pre-baked pie crust with sausage-cheddar filling. Pour egg-milk mixture over the filling, and sprinkle with paprika. Place Quiche on lined cookie sheet and bake at 325° degrees for 50 minutes or until nicely set.

If the edge of the crust browns too quickly, simply cover with foil and continue to bake. Once finished, remove to a wire rack. Cool for ten minutes and serve with a lightly dressed side salad. Enjoy!
