Petite Sausage Quiches Recipe

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

6 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 cups all-purpose flour

FILLING:

6 ounces bulk Italian sausage

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1 tablespoon minced chives

1 large egg

1/2 cup half-and-half cream

1/4 teaspoon salt

Dash cayenne pepper

How to make it

Preheat oven to 375°. Beat butter, cream cheese and flour until smooth. Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into balls; press onto the bottom and up the sides of greased miniature muffin cups.

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and crumble. Sprinkle sausage, Swiss cheese and chives into muffin cups. Beat egg, cream, salt and pepper until blended; pour into shells.

Bake until browned, 28-30 minutes (for a browner bottom crust, bake on a lower rack). Serve warm.
Yield: 3 dozen.
