Sausage Quiche Squares

This is one of the best breakfast casseroles I have ever eaten. It's the combination of zippy spices bringing bland eggs to life with the rich sausage and melted cheese that makes it so irresistible. It holds together beautifully when cut into little squares, so it would be a lovely appetizer or hor dourves at a party, served with toothpicks. Or cut it into large pieces and serve for breakfast or even dinner.


1 lb bulk pork or turkey sausage
2 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies
1 T. minced jalapeño pepper (optional)
10 eggs
1 t. chili powder
1 t. cumin
1 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. pepper

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Place in a greased 13 x 9" baking dish.

Layer with cheese, onion, chilies and jalapeño if desired. In a large bowl, beat eggs and seasonings. Pour over cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 18-22 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; cut into 1-inch squares.
