Favorite Breakfast Recipes: Sausage Balls and Quiche

I'm linking up to Kelly's Korner today for her Show Us Your Life series.

I'm totally in love with sausage balls for breakfast. You can make them ahead and they're always really easy! I like to add a little water to mine so it's more of a dough than crumbly. They seem to have a better texture when cooked.


1 (1-pound) package ground sausage
3 cups baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)
4 cups grated sharp Cheddar
1/8 tablespoon pepper


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl. Mix well with your fingers. The mixture will be very crumbly. Form into 1 inch balls, squeezing the mixture so it holds together, then rolling it between the palms of your hands to form balls. Place the balls on the baking sheet. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. To prevent sticking, move the balls with a spatula halfway through cooking.

We love mustard, so that's what we dip them in. It's really good!

I'm a quiche for breakfast kind of girl. You can also make this ahead and it's really easy!


1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
12 slices bacon
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup minced onion
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups light cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 small can of mushrooms


1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2.Place bacon in a large skillet, and fry over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then chop coarsely. Sprinkle bacon, cheese, mushrooms and onion into pastry shell.
3.In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture into pastry shell.
4.Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Allow quiche to sit 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

This is super yummy!!!

Either of these recipes are great for busy moms, for people who are intimidated by trying new recipes, or for taking to your Sunday school group.
