Recipe: Christmas BERKfest Quiche

This time of year, it's easy to find recipes and ideas for Christmas and holiday dinners- endless options for the grandest meal of the day! 

Our family certainly does dinner as well, but we also spend a lot of time thinking about breakfast on Christmas morning. Everybody gets up early, you can smell the aroma of coffee wafting through the house, and mom has usually just put the quiche in the oven. It's at that point that you just KNOW that Christmas has truly arrived. 

We thought we'd share our family's quiche recipe with you this year, substituting plain ground sausage for one of our favorites here at Saddleberk- the sundried tomato! Sundried tomato is available in bulk form from all of our Kroger Marketplace locations. You can use it in many recipes and it even tastes great on it's own, but it really shines in recipes that make great use of tomato flavors, like pizza and pasta dishes. We think it's pretty great in this dish as well! 

What you'll need: 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (12 oz.) can of evaporated milk 
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 pre-made pie crust (if you prefer, you can do a homemade version, but this is just as good and much faster!)
  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lb Saddleberk Sun Dried Tomato Sausage
  • 1/2 lb sliced mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • Parmesan cheese

How you'll make it: 

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, evaporated milk, flour, salt, and pepper. 

Place the pie shell in a 9" pie pan.

Brown up the sausage and when finished, add the sausage to the pie pan. 

In the leftover oil from the sausage, add the onion and sauté until tender and translucent. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook until tender. Add the mixture to the pie pan.

Cover the pie pan in a layer of spinach and cheese.

Pour in the egg mixture until the pie is full.

Place the pie pan on a cookie sheet and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. You'll know it's done when a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean and the top is golden brown. 

Feel free to substitute other ingredients for the filling, such as a different sausage, various vegetables, cheeses or different meats, to whatever you prefer. This is a great starting point though, and makes a delicious quiche!
