Sausage and Egg Breakfast / Brunch pie
Not a new recipe, but adapted for Atkins Induction...and it's delicious.
3 large eggs
1 pound mild sausage
1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1/3 c. heavy cream diluted with 1/3 water
Salt, freshly- ground pepper, red pepper flakes to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (if using glass pan)
Crumble the sausage into a frying pan on medium. Cook and drain the sausage. Whisk eggs with cream and seasonings. Spray a baking dish or pie pan (I like a pretty ceramic quiche pan) with Pam. Lay sausage in the bottom of the pan, sprinkle the cheese on top of it evenly. Then pour the egg-cream mixture over it evenly. Bake at 350 degrees 30-40 minutes in glass or ceramic dish. If you're using metal, 375 degrees.
Let it cool a few minutes before you slice into servings. Makes 4 - 6 servings.
Everybody loves this as a breakfast / brunch dish. If it's brunch, serve with a green salad, grilled or steamed asparagus, a thick slice of fresh tomato. Pretty, delicious, and on the diet.
