Green Chile Quiche Recipe

Yield: 8 servings
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

This easy-to-make casserole is similar to a quiche, with a fluffy texture. It’s
perfect for brunch or breakfast. Leftovers can easily be reheated. It has just
enough heat with the green chiles, but not so much that it overpowers.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Turkey or Pork Sausage
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (40 ounces) whole green chilies, drained, seeded and divided
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded, divided
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Hot sauce to taste

Instructions

  1. Brownthe Sausage: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the onion and sausage. Stirring occasionally brown the sausage and cook the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Drain off the fat and stir in the garlic.
  2. Prepare the casserole: Open the green chiles so they lay flat and line the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish with one can of the green chiles. Top with 1.5 cups shredded cheese. Add the meat mixture and top with the second can of green chiles. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the Eggs: In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the flour until well combined. Add milk, salt, and hot sauce and beat. Pour egg mixture over meat.
  4. Bake: Place casserole in preheated oven on center rack and bake uncovered for 40 minutes, or until knife inserted off-center comes out clean. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining cheese and let rest for 5 minutes.

Notes

ProTip: Using a hand mixer to beat the eggs will give the casserole a more fluffy, even texture.
