Preheat: 400°F | | Prep Time: 30 minutes | | Bake Time: 25-30 minutes
- 1 premade piecrust (frozen aisle of most markets)
- 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme
- 3 fresh sage leaves
- 1/3 c onion, chopped
- 1 small red potato, skinned and diced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ¾ c chicken sausage with coriander
- 1 ball of fresh burrata cheese
- ¼ c butter, melted
- 4 eggs + 2 egg whites
- 1/3 c whole milk (lactose-free substitutes are okay, but may taste off)
- 1 handful of spinach
5 SIMPLE STEPS:
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Toss onion, thyme, sage and potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper on the sheet. Roast in the oven at 400°F for 18 minutes.
- Unwrap and thaw the piecrust for 10 minutes. Pop in the oven with the vegetables for 3 minutes to soften. Using a fork, crimp the piecrust edge diagonally for the desired shape. Wave-like strokes create the most impressive look.
Hint: place the piecrust on another baking sheet for easier removal of the pie and use oven gloves!
- Heat sausage links in the microwave for 2 minutes uncovered or in the oven as directed.
- Whisk eggs, egg whites, milk, melted butter, and a hint of salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the bits of sausage.
- Line the bottom of the crust with the potato/onion/herb mixture, layer with a handful of spinach, and pour over the egg mixture. Cover the crust edges with tinfoil to reduce cracking of the piecrust.
Cover and refrigerate up to two days and/or bake in the center of the oven for 25-30 minutes.
