Anyone else love a good, hot breakfast? I go to my local MOPS (moms of preschoolers) group and everyone is asked to bring a breakfast dish once each semester. With 100-ish moms, it works out to a hot breakfast buffet at every meeting. Yum! This semester, I took Breakfast Sausage Pie, a recipe from a friend, and it was delish. So simple, too. Want the recipe??
Breakfast Sausage Pie(printable recipe here)
1 lb breakfast sausage
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 small can of chopped green chilies, drained
1 box of refrigerated, roll-out pie crust (two crusts total)
1 egg white
Brown breakfast sausage in a skillet and drain excess fat. Mix cream cheese and chilies into warm sausage until it's completely incorporated. On a round pizza pan (I used my pizza stone from Pampered Chef), roll out one pie crust. Brush the top with egg white. Place meat mixture on the bottom crust. Unroll the second pie crust and place it on the meat mixture. Pinch the edges to seal the pie. Brush egg white on the surface of the top crust. Bake in a 400 degree, preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until pie is golden brown. Cut into 12 pieces and serve warm.
Need a visual? It goes: pie crust, filling, pie crust, pinch edges and bake. Super easy!
Do YOU have a favorite, go-to breakfast dish for special occasions? I'd love to see it! I'll need ideas for next semester's MOPS meetings :)
