He-Man Quiche

6 to 8 servings

  • 1 refrigerated, folded pie crust (from a 15-ounce package)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 pound hot Italian sausage, crumbled, cooked, and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 eggs
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Unfold the pie crust and place in an 8-inch round cake pan, pressing firmly against the pan to form a crust; flute, if desired, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the Swiss and Cheddar cheeses. Sprinkle half of the cheese mixture into the pie crust. Top with the crumbled sausage, then sprinkle with the remaining cheese mixture.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream and the eggs; pour into the crust over the cheese and sausage. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into wedges and serve.

Note: For a less spicy version, use a mild sausage or even a turkey sausage.
