Quiche with ‘Pat in the Pan’ Crust (sausage, eggs)



1 ½ cups flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

½ cup olive oil

3 tbsp milk


3 eggs

½ cup milk

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional: 1 sausage, de-cased or chopped

Optional: onions, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, herbs etc.

Optional: cheese, shredded



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

If using cooked optional filling ingredients, heat oil or fat over medium heat in a pan. Add the sausage and cook for 3 minutes, add any veggies you would like to cook, and cook until sausage reaches 160 degrees.

While the sausage and/or veggies are cooking, mix all of the crust ingredients together. Using your hands, scoop the crust into the pie pan and pat it in the pan until the whole bottom and up the sides are covered.

Mix the eggs, milk, salt and pepper for the filling.

Add the optional meat and veggies into the pie pan. Add the egg mix until it reaches ¾ of the way up the crust. If the pan is larger, you can add extra eggs/milk. Top with shredded cheese if using.

Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending on the size of the pie pan). Use a knife to slice a small slit in the filling, if the egg is runny and fills the hole, continue to cook. If the hole remains empty, remove from oven and enjoy!
