Ryan's Quiche

We had to attend a party last Saturday and were asked to bring an entree. I wondered about what to take, as it had to be easy to make and transport; I probably would not be able to warm it up after it had been sitting in the back of our cold car for the hour it took for us to get here, and it had to be non-messy to eat because we would be balancing our plates. All of this meant that my default lasagna or meatballs in the crockpot wouldn't work. I was eating brie and apples one evening while I recounted my dilemma to Ryan and he suggested making a brie and apple quiche. We talked about some of the details and he came up with a delicious solution.

1 pie crust
1/2 pkg maple sausage, browned and crumbled (probably ~8 oz.)
1/2 apple, sliced very thinly
1/3 lb brie, rind removed
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Add the browned and crumbled sausage to the pie crust.

Layer sliced apples on top of the sausage. 

Cover the apples with brie cut into slices (or hand-squished into flat pieces).

 Whisk eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg together.

Pour the egg mixture over all the rest of the yummy stuff in the pie plate.
Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes. 

I think it's better eaten warm while the brie is nicely melted, but it also works if you have to make something easy to take to a party that won't spill in your car, will be edible even though you can't warm it up, and won't be too difficult to eat even when you're juggling a plate and a drink. Enjoy!
