Teresa’s Breakfast Quiche with Vegetarian Alternative at End of Post

Frozen hashbrowns, cubed (I use the ones with bell peppers)…about half a bag
1/2 stick butter
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 pack sausage (I like hot), cooked and crumbled
1/2 onion, finely chopped and cooked in microwave with 4 TBS water for 2 minutes
1 and 1/4 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a 9 inch pie plate or cake pan, spread the frozen hashbrowns out evenly until the bottom of pan is completely covered. You may need to run a small amount of water over the hashbrowns to break them apart, but pat them dry before putting them in pan. Melt the butter and pour over the hashbrowns. Add a little salt and pepper and mix well and then spread out again evenly in pan. Bake 25 minutes. Potatoes should start to turn lightly brown on edges.

At the same time, mix all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Once the hashbrowns are ready, pour the mixture over them.

Turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake quiche until golden brown on top, approx 25-30 min.

Alternatively, for a vegetarian quiche, just leave out the sausage and add half a bell pepper, finely chopped and cooked the same way as the chopped onions.

This is my sister Tina’s recipe:

Sausage Balls made with Buttermilk

Yield: about 45

Ingredients:

3 cups Bisquick
1 pound hot sausage
2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded
1 cup buttermilk (or maybe a little more to make it the consistency you would like)
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
Place by the tablespoon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. These will almost double in size so place them about an inch and half apart.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
Serve warm.
Store in the freezer in a freezer bag for about a month. Reheat in the microwave for about 30 seconds for every 4 biscuits.
