Sausage Quiche Lorraine


Hey guys!
I'm baaaaack - you know, the girl that created this group back in 2007?
It's so crazy how the group has gone on and how you guys are even posting recipes.
Well, I have something to share with you now, a recipe that I love to make for dinner.

It's from my website, Freakin' Delicious!, a place where I post all my recipes.
I haven't updated it in a really long time but theres a lot to check out if your interested.

Anyway, on with the recipe!
It's very easy to make and tastes so good right out of the oven, the pastry is my favorite part - light and flaky.

Cut the sausages into small pieces and add to the prepared flan case.
Place the eggs, egg yolks and cream in a bowl and beat together.
Stir in the milk, and add salt andpepper to taste. Pour the mixture over the sausage and sprinkle
with the grated cheese. Bake in the already preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until golden.
