Simple Quiche

Last night, I decided to make a quiche. Since I haven't made one before, I didn't want to try anything too fancy, so I used a very basic recipe

I didn't have a quiche/tart pan, so I just used a plain pie pan. I also used a refrigerated crust (though I didn't have much of a choice--I realized that I don't have a rolling pin!)

While I preheated the oven at 375, I cooked some sausage. While it was cooking, I beat four eggs and stirred in 1 1/2 cup of milk and 1 1/2 cup of mild shredded cheddar. I also added some salt and a little Cavendar's seasoning (since John doesn't eat black pepper).

Once the sausage finished, I drained it and crumbled it into very small pieces. I added it to the egg mixture.

I put the pie crust in the oven for five minutes and then removed it and poured in the egg mixture. I baked it for about 30-35 minutes until it was set.

It turned out pretty good. We ate it with some grapes and apple slices and some leftover biscuits from Sunday that I wrapped in foil and stuck in the oven with the quiche.

I cut another piece today and warmed it in the oven for a late breakfast. It was even better than last night.
Think I'm going to try it again with spinach and a different type of cheese, maybe feta or Swiss. Possibly add some bacon in place of the sausage.

Use the thick end of an empty wine bottle for a rolling pin.
