Ingredients

  • 3 cups cornbread cut into cubes
  • 1 lb breakfast or Italian sausage cooked and crumbled
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 cups colby-jack cheese shredded and divided

Instructions

  • Prepare cornbread mix. Let cool and cute into cubes. Set aside. Or use purchased cornbread and cut into cubes.
  • Preheat oven to 350º and spray a 9 or 10 inch deep dish pie plate or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Cook Sausage and place on paper towels to drain. Drain grease, and in the same pan, sauté onions. If using Italian sausage, you will need to add a little olive oil to the pan before cooking the sausage.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half & half, ground mustard, salt, onion powder, black pepper, garlic powder, nutmeg and hot sauce. Add the onions, crumbled sausage, grated Parmesan cheese and 1 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese. Gently add cornbread cubes and fold into egg mixture.
  • Pour into prepared dish and top with remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes or until the center is set when gently shaken. Check the quiche at 30 minutes and lay a piece of aluminum foil on top if needed to prevent over-browning. Allow to rest on the counter for 10 minutes, then cut and serve
