This quiche recipe is also very versatile. You can substitute the sausage for bacon if you want. Use a bell pepper instead of the green chilies and even use whatever kind of cheese you have on hand.

Depending on what type of pie crust you use for this recipe, you might have to prepare it differently than what I indicate below. Always prepare the pie crust according to the directions on the package. Most will indicate different methods for pies and quiches.

    This recipe surprised me how tasty it was as I had left out the green chilies as I am not a fan, but it had a fabulous taste and my friend and I just loved it. There was enough left over for a second meal that I had for supper the next day. It was still fresh and just as tasty. It was very easy to make and could be made in a jiffy when company drops in. It is definitely a keeper and will make it again.
