6 slices of bread, buttered on both sides
1 lb hot or regular sausage
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
6 eggs, beaten
1 small can evaporated milk
jalapeno peppers, optional
Place the buttered bread slices in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Brown sausage, drain thoroughly on paper towels. Crumble sausage over bread. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the sausage. Beat eggs slightly; blend with milk and pour over cheese. Halve, seed and dice peppers (if using) and sprinkle over the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven 40 minutes covered. Uncover and bake 10 minutes longer.
This quiche freezes well. Cut into squares before freezing and reheat in the microwave or conventional oven.
