FAQ

Are there any shortcuts?

Yes — I use pre-made pie crust… always!

What type of pie crust should I buy?

For my quiches, I always purchase a pre-made, deep-dish pie crust. Prior to baking, I take a fork to the bottom of the crust, which allows for even cooking. This is formally called “docking” your pie crust.

What sausage should I use for this recipe?

I prefer to use hot sausage, as I find it has more flavor; that said, use the breakfast sausage of your choice. Chorizo would also be delicious!

Tell me about the Grey Poupon — I’m unsure of it.

I baste the bottom of all savory pies/quiches with Grey Poupon. It does not give the dish a mustard-forward taste; rather, it flavors the crust and gives a great complexity and balance to the overall profile of the dish. You can use any brand of dijon mustard for this, but Grey Poupon is my favorite.

Ingredients, Shopping List

easy brunch recipe
  • Breakfast sausage: I like hot, as I find it has more flavor. That said, pick up the breakfast sausage of choice for your household.
  • Eggs: 6 eggs will be used in this quiche.
  • Deep-dish pie crust: I always pick up pre-made, deep-dish pie crusts from the freezer section of my local grocery store.
  • Rotel: 1 can will suffice!
  • Half-and-half: 1 cup will be used.
  • Shredded Cheese: I use 8 oz. of sharp cheddar in this quiche. If you have another cheese that you love more, absolutely substitute it!
  • Onion: I like vidalia, as they are sweeter. Choose the variety of your liking!
  • Hot Sauce: Cholula is my brand of choice.
  • Dijon Mustard: Grey Poupon for me!
  • Kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder: 1 tsp. each.
