- 1 Deep frozen pie crust
- ½ lb Breakfast sausage (we like Swaggerty’s from Kodak, TN – near Sevierville)
- 6 Fresh mushrooms, sliced
- ½ Onion, diced
- ½ Sweet pepper, diced
- 3 Hand fulls of fresh spinach
- 1 Clove garlic, fine mince
- Olive oil as needed for sauteing
- 5 eggs
- ½ cup Heavy cream
- A couple of shakes of Tiger Seasoning
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 cup or so of Shredded cheese – a mix of smoked gouda, cheddar, asiago, pepper jack ( I had to laugh that she used all four of these cheeses – just use your favorites and put in a cup or so).
Her objective was to make a good meal rather than create a recipe and it’s the kind of dish that exact amount aren’t necessary, so just add and subtract as you see fit
Brown the sausage in a medium skillet and remove to a plate with paper towels to drain. Then add olive oil to the skillet, if needed, and onion, pepper, and mushrooms and sauté until softened, remove and mix with the sausage. Bev did this the day before, so she allowed the mixture to cool and stored in the fridge. The next day, she set it out to warm up while she prepped the other ingredients.
The next morning she added a little olive oil to the skillet along with the garlic and spinach and cooked until the spinach had wilted and given up much of it’s moisture. (Had she thought about using the spinach a day earlier, she would have cooked it with the onions, peppers and mushrooms). Allow this to cool before mixing with the eggs.
Preheat the oven to 350* and cook the crust for about 5 minutes and allow it to cool.
Beat the eggs and cream until well combined and mix in the other ingredients. Fill the piecrust and cook in the 350* oven for about 25 minutes or until it has set in the middle.
It made enough to fill the pie crust and a 4”x6” oval ramekin, and it was delicious. I love it when the chef decides to create something.
I got my annual dose of watching "White Christmas" last night and I only wish I could erase my memory of it so it would be new each year. I miss the America that thought this was a great movie.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting Almost Heaven South.
