Workaday Quiche

It felt like I was living in a Christmas globe yesterday as the heavens opened and dumped snow upon us, coating trees, streets and housetops in a muffling blanket. It was wonderful! :-) I blissfully wiled away the hours watching an old Cary Grant movie, reading and cooking, with many breaks to watch the snow fall.

Plotting this weeks meals, I settled on a big pot of soup, stewed chicken for tarts and salads, and a lovely quiche I can heat up quickly for breakfast.

The quiche is crustless and easy as can be, chock full of protein and savory flavors.

First I fry up whatever meat I'm using. Sometimes it's crumbled sausage, or grated farmer's sausage. This time I used smoked sausage cut into bits. 

While the sausage was cooking, I mixed up the other ingredients: eggs, cottage cheese, dry mustard, green onion, and my favorite fire roasted green chilies.

Once the sausage was cooked, I folded it into the egg mixture, poured into a greased pan and baked for 45 minutes, then scurried back to my warm bed to read my book. :-)

It turned out beautifully, golden brown, a bit crispy on the edges (I do like those crispy bits!) and is now in my fridge ready to be cut and re-heated for several breakfasts. :-)

Easy Breakfast Quiche

2 cups sausage (or ham)
1 cup cottage cheese
4 eggs
1/2 tsp dry mustard

3 Tbsp mild green chilies
1 green onion, sliced
Dash pepper

Fry sausage and drain. Combine with remaining ingredients and pour into greased 8-9 inch pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve warm.


  1. I made soup tonight. I should make this to go with it but no sausage.

  2. Oh yes, that would've gone beautifully. Hmm - I suppose you could make it without the sausage - maybe add bacon bits or chopped turkey ham or something?
