breakfast pie

i am a fan of pie. dessert pie and not-dessert pie. i like dinners that can be all in the same dish, pan, pot. i think i like not-dessert pie even more because its called pie. i like shepherd's pie. i like chicken pot pie. i like quiche and am delighted that its a brunchy sorta pie. my mom sent me this recipe and its like a really easy quiche; its a full on breakfast pie. i'll post the recipe as i make it but you can do whatever you like. any kind of breakfast meat will do. use any sort of cheese you like. i like onions and red peppers. maybe you like green peppers and mushrooms or maybe even asparagus. there is a little european restaurant downtown called natasha's and one of the dishes is called midnight chicken. its my favorite there but it always has slightly different veggies in it. the idea behind the dish is that sometimes friends drop by unannounced and you just have to throw what you got in a pot. the recipe is like that.

breakfast pie

3 cups of shredded, thawed shredded hash brown potatoes
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 lb maple sausage
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar
5-6 eggs, beaten

preheat the oven to 350. spread potatoes into a 9" pie plate, drizzle butter, toss about to coat. you can cut calories by using non stick butter flavored spray, but you kind of half to use a lot and toss a couple of times. bake for 25 minutes until golden and crispy. brown sausage and onions until cooked thoroughly. spread across potatoes. spread red pepper on top too. beat eggs and mix in cheese. salt and pepper to taste. pour eggs on top of everything, spread to cover. bake 25 more minutes or until eggs are done to your taste. i like my eggs very done and Not Jiggly At All which ends up being about 30 minutes. this is great fresh, reheated, and as cold leftovers. enjoy!
