Who knew Breakfast could be so fun? That’s right, Mexican and Pie for breakfast–two of my favorite foods together. The great thing about this dish is you can serve it for dinner or breakfast. I am making this once a week. It is so easy and you can tweak the recipe to fit the tastes of your family. Enjoy!
I have a great recipe for you. I just bought a basket of sweet banana peppers at Van Pelt’s Farm Market, 1176 Fairfield School Rd., Columbiana, Ohio 44408. Their phone number is 330.482.0435. When I saw this recipe I knew it was the perfect way to use some of my peppers. I did tweak the original recipe. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.
The apples are absolutely delicious right now. My favorite orchards are Rittman Orchards and Bauman Orchards. You can even pick your own apples. I haven’t been able to talk the Butcher into this yet but I’m still hoping. I had some apples and I decided to make this cake. It is a definite winner! The cream cheese frosting is the “icing on the cake”.
Sausage Quiche with hash brown crust
3 Cups shredded hash brown potatoes
1/2 stick of butter (1/4 cup)
Salt and pepper
12 oz. Hot Italian Sausage (or use your favorite) available at your ( local meat market)
6 jumbo eggs (available at your local butcher shop)
1/4 cup half and half
2 Cups shredded cheese
6 green onions (chopped)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9” pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. In a large glass bowl melt the butter in the microwave. Add the hash browns to the bowl with the melted butter. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Place in the pie pan. Press the hash browns on the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Place in the oven and bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
While the hash browns are cooking remove your sausage from the casings (wet, split casings with a knife and remove). Thoroughly cook the sausage in a skillet over medium heat. Remove the skillet from the burner and allow the sausage to cool. In the same bowl you mixed up the hash browns, whisk together eggs, half and half, cheese and green onions. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add the cooked sausage and mix well.
When the hash brown layer is cooked pour the mixture on top. Return it to the oven and cook for an additional 30 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.
This is great to freeze and use for breakfast.
That’s all for this week—-From our Butcher Block to your Table
