Texas Quiche

I needed a couple of pounds of sausage and all I had was maple flavored. What the heck. I tried it any way and it turned out delicious. I improvised and used parts of a recipe I found on line for quiche. Used more sausage (2 pounds not 1.5 pounds), cut up a whole onion to cook with the meat. None was called for. I like the flavor!

While the meat was browning I greased two 9″ pie pans and placed corn tortillas in the bottom to work as the crust (4 per pan with one in the middle). I poured the meat into the pans and added a can of green chilies (1/2 can each pan). Then spread liberal amounts of Colby Jack cheese on both pans. Next I mixed 12 eggs, 1 cup of heavy cream, 1 cup of Ricotta cheese, heavy helpings of black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder and then mixed the concoction together by hand.
I poured the egg mixture over the ingredients in both pans equally and baked at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. After it was baked I added fresh Cilantro on top. The result.
I couldn’t wait to dive in and set the table and made my presentation to Kim. She was not a fan of the quantity of Cilantro I placed on top and removed it. Otherwise she really like it and we have plenty left over (again). I cook way too much at a time! I love leftovers!!! Post any questions under the comment section or on my Facebook page! Eat well and have Safe Travels !!!

  1. You can’t go wrong with onions OR leftovers! Sounds delicious.
    Also, I bet you know this but some people are genetically predisposed to not liking cilantro. These people smell/taste/perceive it differently to those who like it. I wonder if this is the case with Kim?



    Thank you kindly for your comment. It was delicious. Kim has a delicate sense of taste and spicy or strong flavors do not agree with her to a certain extent. You are correct. I on the other hand like the spiciest foods and love a lot of Cilantro in my Mexican Food! Thanks for stopping by! Safe Travels young lady !!!

    Cayanne pepper… it scares me… can you be any more specific on the amount… for the 2 pies.. like total of 1 tsp.??

    I think maple is a good addition to anything. I just carried some maple-flavored extract down to Mexico so I can add it to the supposedly maple flavored syrup here.



    My apologies but I rarely use “Measurements” with spices. I would say that you could try 1/2 TSP per pie as you state, at first and if it really doesn’t bite, increase the amount over time as you make it again. Thank you for subscribing and I will keep you in the loop in the coming weeks. I appreciate your comment brother!!!


    You are correct. Maple goes terrific with anything! When I ate donuts in my earlier days, I always chose the “Maple Logs”! I always get Maple syrup for waffles and pancakes and I love it!!! Thank you for your comment and for reading my blog. Peace and Safe Travels!!!

    I highly recommend it! It was a little different than normal quiche and had a Texas flavor (lots of cumin & chili powder) to spice it up. The fresh cilantro topped it off wonderefully. Thanks for your comment! Next time I will furnish napkins for “Drooling! Ha!
