Breakfast for Supper - The Ranch Kitchen's Quiche

Growing up with a working mom we used to love having breakfast for dinner!  We always ate breakfast at home before school, but during the week of school cereal and toast was the chosen way to start the day.  Tonight I am tired...and I thought to myself...why not breakfast for dinner?  It's quick and my girls love it.   Now my husband.....that's another matter.  He is a little old fashioned and a meat and potatoes man...but when he is out of town, it's breakfast for dinner! 

Below is my quiche I make with or without a crust, depending on what you have in your refrigerator or freezer.  We cook our own pork that we raised off one of the girls market projects from our local county fairs (they sometimes won't eat it knowing that), and I will sometimes cut up some baked potatoes and cook in a little oil, butter, and garlic salt.  Yum....getting hungry just thinking about it! 

The Ranch Kitchen's Quiche

6 eggs, beaten

1 package of sausage links, 8 - 10 count

1 small can green chili's with juice

1 small chopped red, yellow, or sweet 1015 onion

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

1 tsp. Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning

Directions:  Beat eggs and add to this green chili's, onion, cheddar cheese, and seasoning. Place in a greased pie dish. Arrange sausage links in a star pattern by placing in the egg mixture. Cook at 375 degrees uncovered for 35 minutes or until done. 

With some fresh rolls, your favorite jelly or honey, sausage or bacon, and juice and you're set!

Hi Alise,
We love breakfast for dinner, too. We call it Breakfast Monday around here (since we are both tired on Monday evenings) and when we don't have it the kids are disappointed.
