Had this recipe for many, many years. We've had it only for Christmas morning breakfast each year. It's pretty, easy to make and tastes special on Christmas morning!
Christmas Morning Cranberry-Sausage Quiche
1 9 inch pie shell
1/2 lb sausage, mild or medium
1/2 C chopped onion
3/4 C dried cranberries
11/2 C monterry jack cheese, this can be a blend on mj and chedder
3 eggs, lightly beaten
11/2 C half and half
Preheat oven to 400F. Bake pie shell for 7 minutes. Don't prick the pie shell before cooking. Reduce temp. to 375F. Crumble and cook sausage and onion. Drain. stir in cranberries. Sprinkle cheese on bottom of pie shell. Top with sausage mixture. combine eggs and half and half. Pour over sausage mixture. Bake 40-45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. You know it's done if you put a knife in the center and it comes out clean.
I bake the pie shell and make the sausage and eggs the day before. I just put it all together Christmas morning and start baking. Then we open presents!
