Sausage Quiche

2 refrigerated pie crusts
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
1 Tbsp. flour
4 eggs
1 cup evaporated milk (not skim and not sweetened condensed)
1 lb. Lean sausage of your choice
1/2 small onion, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Crumble and cook sausage.  Drain.  In a large bowl whisk eggs, cream and flour until well blended.  Stir in cheese, sausage and onions.  Pour evenly into pie shells.  Bake 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Set stand about 5 minutes before slicing.

Comments - This dish makes the perfect breakfast, brunch and even dinner.  Add some sliced tomatoes and you have a delicious meal.  For changes - you can make this without the crust and you can use ground beef instead of sausage.  If using ground beef you might want to add some chopped bell peppers, maybe a little garlic.  For your cheese, as my newest cookbook says "Think With Your Taste Buds."  Use cheddar or blends.
