Try It Thursday: Sausage Quiche

Yesterday when we were waiting for the doctor to come in Mother looked at recipes. I had already decided that I was going to do something with the sausage my hubs thawed a few days ago in the frig so that it did not go bad.

Mother said, “Sug, don’t this look good.”

Showing me a sausage quiche recipe. My empty stomach rumbled, my mouth watered. I looked over the ingredients and I had everything at home except the pie crust. I would improvise.

About 90% of the time when I see a recipe, I will look at the basic gist of it and then fly with my own version. So instead of the pie crust I just mixed a little Bisquick, water, and a couple of eggs and put it in the rest of the mixture. We are a cheese eating couple so I put cheese on top too as well as in it.

Sausage Quiche

1/2 pound Sausage
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained
2 eggs
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
1/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
1 9-inch unbaked deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 350. In a large skillet, cook sausage until well browned, stirring frequently. Drain off grease and set aside. Whisk together eggs, Ranch dressing, sour cream and milk. Add sausage, cheese and Rotel. Stir to combine. Pour egg mixture into prepared pie crust. Bake 1 hour. Allow quiche to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

I wish I would have written down the amounts that I used. I put everything in a 9×13, so my recipe did have more of everything. I liked the kick that Peppercorn Ranch I used gave it. I also did not drain my tomatoes.

I asked the hubs what he thought and he said, “It is a keeper.”

Oh I So Sleepy

Sitting in the Dr’s waiting for labs. It is only the beginning of a big busy day. Daisy girl started barking at 3:00 this morning, so let the zombie day begin.

Mother called a few minutes ago and I was sitting on the bed/floor trying to locate a hotel for my husband’s pal. Bless his heart, or his wife’s heart. She flew home to be with her parents for a bit because a nasty UTI. So he is enjoying their dream trip/life alone for now. Hopefully soon she will fly back out to meet him.

I am glad Mother called, made me get up. I think we have him a room now. Next my labs, then to Walmart to get things for tomorrow. Two men. Hmmm… No drinking, but I know snacks, but it is HOT!

Then home to make bread. Shhh…During my rising cycles, I might not rise, I might lay down. I have no energy and my back is usually broken after kneading. Whine, whine, whimper.

Sometime today I need to call about my nerve conduction study from Tuesday. They only did cervical not lumbar, did not make a whole lot of sense, oh well, no MD or PC after my name.

Tonight we are going to go to Old Times Country Buffet with his pal. My husband likes the food and the hostess.
