SPANISH-STYLE SAUSAGE QUICHE
1 pound hot pork sausage
1 small onion, chopped, 2 1/2 ounces
1 small green pepper, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
In a large skillet, brown the sausage with the onion. When the sausage is cooked through, drain off the grease. Add the green pepper and tomato. Cook over medium-high heat until the peppers are tender-crisp and some of the juice from the tomato has cooked off. Drain the sausage and vegetables on a paper towel-lined plate then put in the bottom of a greased 9-10" pie plate. Top with the cheese.
Whisk the eggs, salt and pepper, then whisk in the cream. Evenly pour the egg mixture over the sausage and cheese. Bake at 350º for 35-45 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand about 10 minutes before cutting.

My sister-in-law made a quiche like this for us and it was delicious. I'd never thought to add tomatoes to a quiche but they're very nice. Don't cook them too long before adding them to the quiche or they'll lose all their texture.
