Sausage, potato and cheddar quiche

I've been getting creative in the kitchen lately in terms of using whatever is it that we have in the fridge or pantry (aka pantry party). I do this to save money and avoid the grocery store.  Yesterday evening I made a sausage, potato quiche and paired it with a spring green salad. I love breakfast for dinner. And I love quiche. So it ended up being a great meal (not all pantry parties are!).  Erik was happy because it was basically a meat and potato pie.

Sausage, potato and cheddar quiche


1 store-bought pie crust
6 eggs
1 package sausge (I used Jimmy Dean)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
2 medium sized red potatoes, thinly sliced
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place sliced potatoes on a greased baking sheet, top with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Roll pie crust onto an ungreased glass 9 inch pie dish. Place potatoes and pie dough into the oven and bake for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce the temperature to 350 degrees.

While potatoes and pie crust is in the oven, cook/brown the sausage in a frying pan. In a bowl, mix together the eggs and sour cream.

Layer the sausage (I only used about 3/4 of the sausage), potatoes and cheddar into the pie crust. Top with the egg mixture.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set.
