Green Chile Sausage Quiche

This isn’t your normal, frou-frou quiche.

The French would be aghast at the sight of this. Brunch fanatics would probably talk about this quiche behind its back.

This is a tried-and-true Southwestern/Texan quiche. With the use of green chiles and sausage, you get a spicy punch every time you take a bite.

Quiche is usually more dainty and lightly flavored. Not this quiche, though.

Is it a true quiche? Probably not. I used frozen pie crust and very few eggs, for crying out loud. I’m still going to call it a quiche, no matter what anybody says.

This is a great way to start the day. I’ve eaten a slice every morning this week and it really wakes you up (maybe even more than a cup of coffee!) because of the spice and flavor. It’s even better with a dash or two of hot sauce.

If you’re in the mood to shake things up for breakfast, this is the recipe for you.
