Sausage and Vegetable Quiche


quiche

Friday ~ always looking forward to Fridays. I guess I am not the only one who look forward to the start of weekend. Right? Weekdays ~ I am up to my eyeball , running around kids' schedules :- school work, homework, music lessons... and the worst would be EXAM week..nail biting I think my stress level is higher than theirs.

My weekend starts around 5pm Friday evening. I can take a deep breath ... fill my lungs with O2 (oxygen)... and forget about the clock  ... I can put my feet up and relax...

And Fridays are my marketing day too, the day that I would clear out last week stock and replenish with fresh supplies.
Whatever leftover stuff that I have in either my freezer or crisper compartment in my fridge, I would chopped them up and make into this easy pie.  Nothing goes to waste....

Line pie dish with store-bought shortcrust pastry, blind bake... then fill with thinly sliced sausages and sauteed vegetables

 Pour in the egg mixture...

Sprinkle some tasty cheese...  and straight into preheated oven..

After half an hour (approximately)... Pie is ready to be consumed....oh go on

I am submitting this quickie pie to Aspiring Bakers #6 ~ Say cheese (April 2011) hosted by Jean of Need More Noms...
