I've made this many times now and it's becoming a favorite and very low carb. It has an interesting texture. The meat sort of forms the crust and then there's a cheesy, custardy top layer.

EARLY RISE BREAKFAST
12 oz. - 1 lb. bacon, chopped and fried until crisp
1 lb. pork sausage, browned
Other optional meats: ham, roast beef, etc.
12 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
4 oz. can mushrooms, drained (optional)
Salt & pepper, to taste
8 oz. shredded cheddar

Beat the eggs in a large bowl; beat in the cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the meats, onion, green pepper (I sauteed the onion and peppers along with the sausage), mushrooms (if using) and the cheese in a greased 9x13" baking dish. Pour the egg mixture evenly over everything. Cover and chill overnight, if desired. Bake at 350º for 50-60 minutes, until golden brown and knife inserted comes out clean. If not chilled, bake about 40-45 minutes. Makes 8-12 servings.

Without Mushrooms: 8 servings (4 carbs each) 10 servings (3.5 carbs each) 12 servings (3 carbs each)
With Mushrooms: 8 servings (5 carbs each) 10 servings (4 carbs each) 12 servings (3.5 carbs each)

This would make a very nice entree for a brunch. Even cut into 12 pieces, the servings are generous. My husband and picky-eater son both liked this.

SAUSAGE QUICHE SQUARES
1 lb. pork sausage, browned and drained
8 oz. colby-jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 oz. can green chiles
1 T. jalapeño pepper, minced
10 eggs
1 t. chili powder
1 t. cumin
1 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. pepper

Spread the sausage in a greased 9x13" baking dish. Layer with half the cheese, then the onion, chiles and jalapeños and the remaining cheese. Beat the eggs with the seasonings; pour over everything as evenly as possible. Bake at 375º for 22 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Makes 12 servings (2.5 carbs each)

This was very good and has no cream in it to add extra carbs. I might leave out the jalapeño next time as it didn't really add much to the dish and use 2 cans of green chiles for more flavor.

I posted all of those recipes before I had MasterCook, so there are no net carb counts, etc. You can find the counts on my website. Here are a couple more quiche recipes:

SMOKED SALMON QUICHE WITH DILL
4 ounce package smoked salmon
4-8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 green onion, chopped (I used chives)
3 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon dried dill or 2 teaspoon fresh dill
Dash pepper

Arrange the cheese, salmon and green onions in a greased pie plate. Beat eggs, cream and seasonings; pour into plate. Bake at 350º 35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Makes 6 servings
Can be frozen
