The other night we enjoyed a yummy quiche. It was good for so many reasons. Some of which are that EVERY ingredient was fresh, I baked it myself, a from scratch pie crust, and there was 2; all for under $4 a quiche.And these guys could easily feed 4-5 people. So that works out to $1 a person. 

Please ignore the horrible looking pie crust...Somedays are just not pie crust days.

Poverty Creek Farm's Manly Sausage Quiche

2 Pie crusts (recipe to follow)
12 farm fresh eggs
1 cup milk
8 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 lb Poverty Creek Farm Hot Breakfast Sausage, loosely cooked

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the eggs and milk. Stir in the shredded mozzarella cheese. Once thoroughly mixed fold in the sausage.
  3. Pour mixture evenly between the 2 pie crusts.
  4. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until the top of the quiche is browned and firm.
  5. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Pie Crust

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 cup shortening, chilled
6 tablespoons ice water
  1. Whisk the flour and salt together in a medium size bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in the cold shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water over flour. Toss mixture with a fork to moisten, adding more water a few drops at a time until the dough comes together. 
  2. Gently gather dough particles together into a ball, divide dough in half and reform into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling. 
  3. Roll out dough, and put in a pie plate. Fill with desired filling and bake. 

I am telling you this stuff is AWESOME!!!! My family eats it up! Even Mr. Cowboy remember him?
