  • 1 pound pork sausage ground
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 cups colby jack cheese shredded
  • 1 cup broccoli chopped, blanched
  • 1 cup brown rice cooked
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 can (2.25 oz) black olives sliced
  • 2 10 inch pie crusts
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon garlic crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown sausage, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add onion and continue to cook until onion is fragrant and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes; drain thoroughly.
  4. Blanch broccoli by dropping it in rapidly boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes, until emerald green, then quickly transfer into ice-cold water to stop cooking. Drain well.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in cheese, broccoli, rice, tomato and olives.
  6. Transfer into pie crusts.
  7. Combine together eggs, cream, garlic and pepper; pour over sausage mixture to cover.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 400F and bake 30 to 35 more minutes or until golden and firm.

Notes

The above recipe was too much for 1 pie crust so I make 2 pies out of it. You could always 1/2 the recipe to make just one. It's great the next day so might as well make two.
