Sausage Quiche Squares (Sort of like a Southwest Omelette Egg Bake)

by admin on January 8, 2010

I tried this for a Men’s Breakfast meeting and got thumbs up from the guys.  If you don’t like it spicy, use half the cumin. I also like this recipe because I can prep the components (cooking sausage, chopping vegetables) ahead of time and then quickly assemble it just before baking. Leftovers reheat very nicely in the microwave.

1 pound bulk pork sausage
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
½ cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1 Tbsp minced jalapeno pepper
10 eggs
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. pepper

In a large skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink; drain.   Place in a greased 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish. Layer with cheeses, onion, chilies, pepper and jalapeno.  In a bowl, beat eggs and seasonings.  Pour over cheese.  Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 18 to 22 minutes or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes; cut into 1-inch squares (or bigger if serving breakfast).  Yields about 8 dozen 1-inch squares.   Also makes a great appetizer.
