1deep dish pie shell(16 oz)
8ozbreakfast sausagecooked and drained
1/4tspground black pepper
Pre-bake the pie crust: Heat the oven to 400˚F. Place parchment in the crust and fill it with dried beans. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature.Reduce oven temperature to 350˚F.Note: do not poke holes in the crust. This can allow the egg to leak through if the holes do not completely close during baking. Weighting the crust with beans should prevent the crust from bubbling up and so the holes are not needed.
Make the custard: In a medium bowl, add the eggs, heavy cream, milk, salt and pepper. Beat with a hand mixer until completely combined.
Roughly chop the spinach, then place half of it in the bottom of the pie crust. Layer half of the sausage and half of the cheese on top of the spinach, then repeat with the remaining spinach, sausage, and cheese.
Pour the egg mixture over the quiche. Place the quiche on a baking sheet and bake for 45-55 minutes or until the center is just set.
Let sit for 20 minutes and serve warm to room temperature. Enjoy!
