grandmomma's sausage cheese pie :)

grandmomma's sausage cheese pie.

here's what y'all will need:
1/2 pkg jimmy dean sausage
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
frozen pie crust
optional: crushed parsley flakes

the making part:
brown sausage; drain.
mix all ingredients together.
pour in frozen pie crust.
optional: sprinkle crushed parsley flakes on top.
bake 350' for 30 minutes or until firm & golden brown. <--it's best to set these on a cookie sheet while baking. it helps brown the buttom of the crust. let it cool. hork it down. note: we ALWAYS double this recipe because it's gone in a blink of an eye.
i mean, you might as well use the whole pkg of sausage.
PLUS the frozen pie crust package already contains 2 crusts. <--win/win :)

if you like a little kick to your breakfast, grandmomma always did 1/2 pkg mild sausage with 1/2 pkg hot sausage. <--i just use a whole package of regular or country mild to keep it kid friendly.
BUT if you're the type that likes a little sweetness, the maple sausage is pretty good too.

this is perfect for company.
grandmomma served it with fresh fruit, like cantaloupe.
i can personally just stand over it and eat straight from the pie plate with a fork. <--don't judge :P

hope y'all enjoy.

oh and one more thing...
not all sausages are created equal.
i'm a huge jimmy dean advocate.
i believe that jimmy dean is the BEST sausage in the world & other sausages just aren't welcomed in my house.
so, please, use jimmy dean if you make this recipe.
*wink*

we are a Jimmy Dean family too! I need to try this recipe...would be great for dinner one night after all the holiday food..

Jessica said...

This must be a super-Southern thing because the only time I've ever had it is when made by older Southern women. And it's DELICIOUS. And I thoroughly agree with you on the Jimmy Dean front- nothing else compares. I always use the Sage kind. Mmmmmmmmm sausage pie...

Oh, Rachel. I do wanted to make this, but being in North Carolina, I'm a Bass Farms kinda girl! Of course if you say nothing else will do then I may just get some Jimmy Dean (eeek)

Jo said...

I'm adding this to my Christmas morning menu!

Debbie Lou said...

Thanks for the recipe, Rachel. I was growing tired of my holiday breakfast casserole anyway, so this sounds like a delightful change. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.

Dedra C said...

I tried it this morning. I didn't judge you-I learned from your example...ate some straight out of the pan. We'll be having it on Christmas morning along with our traditional orange sweet rolls. Thank you much!!

Sandy said...

Hork it down?? I love it...I LOL'd! Sounds yummy. This will be made the week between the holidays....family coming from OK.

MellieWo said...

Sounds delicious no matter what kind of sausage. That being said, living in the Charlotte, NC area, Neese's is the way to go.

Paige said...

Mmmm. I just pinned it to try. Sounds yummy!

Karen said...

Agreed on the Jimmy Dean sausage endorsement. Makes the best gravy for biscuits and gravy.

suemac said...

Love the recipe. I might have to forward it to my husband. He is the cook in the family.

Lindsay said...

I just showed this to my 13 year old son and he said that he didn't want my sausage balls for Christmas morning anymore. He wants this pie. One for him.....one for the rest of the family. Thanks for sharing!

I just made this for my lunch.


I think I love you a little more everyday, Rachel Griffith.

(not in a creepy way. Just, as in, I love you, man.)

Neicee said...

Rachel...This sounds amazing..Christmas morning I will be making this! Thanks.

suz said...

Sounds amazing! We're a JD family too - we use it in our Thanksgiving stuffing as well. thanks for sharing this recipe!

wendy said...

any advice on what kind of timing I would have to change if my pie crust isn't frozen? otherwise this sounds delicious. thanks for sharing.

Country Girl said...

I was looking for something special for Christmas morning and I love Jimmy Dean sausage. Thank you!

This sounds yummy! Do you thaw the pie crusts first?

Sisterino said...

I have seriously made this three times this week holy sausage cheesy goodness. Thank you for sharing

girleen said...

i'm trying this one for christmas breakfast; it is on the stove cooling as i type! thanks and merry christmas.

SwampCatNana said...

I use Jones sausage because it contains NO fillers which add to the carbohydrates in the sausage. I have a problem with fillers in sausage and lunch meats.
Jones has only meat and spices.

I made 2 (took your advice) this morning for Christmas breakfast. Yummy!!! My husband's new favorite. We have several young men spending the night later this week for a church thing...I know what I'm making for breakfast. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!

jlamanna said...

So I made this for Christmas morning, and you were right--I should have made 2 of them. I took the liberty of adding some finely chopped red peppers and onion that I sauteed, and for the cheese I used a cheddar/ Jack mix. It was awesome! And I will make it again!

Theresa said...

Thank you for a great recipe!! I also made this and it was a huge hit. Thank you for sharing your grandmother's recipe with us!

suz said...

We tried this recipe for brunch on Christmas Eve (whole package of Jimmy Dean) - my son loved it (so did I) and he's decided it's a great meal to plan for breakfasts for the week - he's already talking about adding mushrooms and a pie crust top! It didn't last long, that's for sure! Thanks for sharing it.

Jeff said...

I'm wondering about the pie crust too. It doesn't say anything about thawing it so I'm guessing you don't have to. But I have a refrigerated one at home I think I'll try it with. I'll try to remember to report back!

Jade said...

YUMM-O!!! I made it this morning for company. Two of them, one with mushrooms, one without. I used Neese's sausage. They were DEEELISCIOUS! Thanks for the recipe! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Mexican pasta recipe as well. Keep on sharing!
