Ingredients

Directions

Hearty Sausage Mini Quiche

Prep Time: 15 minutes 
Cook Time: 22 minutes

Ingredients

1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Regular Flavor Pork Sausage Roll
1 cup fresh chopped mushrooms
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
10 eggs
¼ cup milk
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup (4 ounces) Cheddar Cheese
½ cup sliced green onions

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook sausage, mushrooms and bell pepper in large skillet over medium-high heat 8-10 minutes or until sausage is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently; drain.
  2. Beat eggs, milk and black pepper in large bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Stir in sausage mixture, cheese, and green onion. Line cupcake pans with 16 baking liners. Spoon mixture evenly into baking cups.
  3. Bake 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

 

Cook's Tips:

Use parchment paper for cupcake liners. Cut a 5-inch piece of parchment paper and press into muffin cups (spraying muffin cups with cooking spray helps parchment stick).

Yield

8 servings (2 mini quiches each)

Sausage Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

Sausage Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
