What's Cooking Wednesday - Breakfast Mini Quiche

Tired of the same ole breakfast routine? Wish you had time to make quiche full of sausage and veggies? I have a solution.

During the weekend, make my recipe for Breakfast Mini Quiches. (And you don't have to add the veggies in yours that I added in my recipe. Throw whatever veggies you have in your fridge. You can't go wrong!) Eat what you want and put the rest in single serving baggies (I throw 2 in a bag). Throw the baggies in the freezer. Whenever, you are feeling the itch for more of a hearty breakfast than cereal, poptarts or just a cup of coffee can offer you, pull out a single serving bag and ENJOY! They are better if you pull them out of the freezer the night before to thaw, but will still warm up nicely straight out of the freezer. Cold weather is coming so start your mornings a little warmer and stress free.

**Everyday Bailey Tip of the Day: Silicone bakeware works GREAT here if you have silicone muffin cups.

Breakfast Mini Quiche - based from Jimmy Dean's recipe

1 pk. Regular flavored Pork Sausage, cooked, crumbled and drained

8 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup milk

1 cup shredded cheese

1 t. salt

1/4 t. black pepper

1 T. olive oil

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion

1/2 cup diced red pepper

1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms

1 cup tomatoes, diced

1 cup onion, diced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, cheese, salt and pepper; Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Saute all of the vegetables until they are tender. Add vegetables and sausage to egg mixture. Stir well.

Distribute sausage and egg mixture evenly into greased baking cups. Bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are set. Let cool for 5 minutes and before attempting to remove from muffin cups.
