20 ounces ground turkey
1 pound pork sausage
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped *
2 ounces onion, chopped (about 1/2 medium)
1 stalk celery, chopped
8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey along with the sausage, mushrooms, onion and celery; drain well. Place in a greased 10-inch pie plate. Do not use a smaller pie plate or it will overflow. If you don't have that size, use an 8x8" or 11x7" baking dish. Mix in the cheese. In a bowl, beat the eggs, cream and seasonings. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the meat mixture. Bake at 350º 35-40 minutes until set in the center and nicely browned. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Makes 6-8 servings
Can be frozen
* To save money I left out the mushrooms this time but I think I'll like it even better with them.

I combined a couple of my recipes to come up with this one. I really like my Sausage-Mushroom "Dressing" but I wanted the same flavors to be in the form of a quiche or pie for easier serving. I also wanted to use ground turkey instead of diced cooked chicken or turkey like in my Chicken and Stuffing Quiche. Although I did leave out the mushrooms this time I will use them next time.
