As the saying goes, real men don’t eat quiche. I guess that means I am not a real man. Quiches are a delicious part of any breakfast or brunch. Here is a great dish for almost real men who can quickly eat their quiche in a couple of bites.

2 sheets frozen Puff Pastry, thawed

1 cup Andouille, finely chopped

1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded

1/2 cup Red Bell Pepper, minced

1/4 cup green Onion, thinly sliced

1 cup Half-and-Half

3 large Eggs

1 teaspoon Creole Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic

Preheat oven to 375℉.

Lightly spray 2 12-cup muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.

Unfold pastry sheets, and using a 3 1/2-inch cutter, cut 12 rounds from each sheet. Press pastry round into the bottom and up sides of prepared muffin cups. In a medium bowl, combine sausage, cheese, bell pepper, and green onions. Divide sausage mixture among prepared muffin cups. In a small bowl, whisk together half-and-half, eggs, Creole seasoning, and granulated garlic. Pour half-and half mixture evenly in muffin cups. Bake until set, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool in pans for 2 minutes.Remove from pans and serve warm.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
