When fall comes to mind, many people think of dishes that offer a combination of flavors and settings. Quiche is a decadent and delightful dish that doesn’t miss a step. This particular dish combines that savoriness of hot Italian sausage and cheese and the flavorful blasts of sliced pears and chopped pecans. Furthermore, the Pear Pecan Sausage Quiche can be infused with cannabis for a medicating experience. Here is Stickyleaf’s own pear pecan sausage quiche!
Yield: 1 whole pie / 8 Slices
With this recipe, consumers can get a whole pie’s worth of infused goodness. Roughly, this equates to eight slices of quiche.
Prep Time: 25 Min.
½ pound (8 ounces) hot Italian sausage links
⅓ cup chopped pecans
One medium or large-sized pear
1 cup (4 ounces) of softened cannabutter
⅓ cup of diced sweet onion
One 9-inch pastry shell (unbaked)
One 9-inch pie pan
1 ½ cups cream (half-and-half)
½ teaspoon dried thyme
⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt
Eight pecan halves
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Making the infused quiche
Bake Time: 40 Min.
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Cut the hot Italian sausage into small slices or crumbles. Begin cooking the hot Italian sausage and diced sweet onion in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Be sure that the hot Italian sausage is cooked thoroughly until brown. Be sure not to overcook the link here as the mixture will finish cooking when baking the quiche. Once cooked, drain the excess grease from the hot Italian sausage. Add a small amount of the softened cannabutter to the cooked sausage and onion. This will not only provide a medicating experience but also add a homestyle taste to the quiche. Assort the cut pears at the bottom of the pastry shell. Ensure each sliced pear will be included in each slice of the sausage quiche. Top the arranged sliced pears with the cooked hot Italian sausage and diced onions. Freely add the chopped pecans into the mixture.
Add a large bowl, cream, thyme, nutmeg, salt, and the remainder of the softened cannabutter. Whisk the eggs into the large bowl until the contents are finely mixed. Stir the shredded cheddar cheese into the large bowl. Feel free to add more shredded cheese to the mixture. It is imperative to make the eggs whisked and beaten smoothly. Along with the shredded cheese, this is the most crucial factor when making a quiche of any kind. Pour the mixture into the dressed pastry shell.
Baking the quiche
Once the oven has preheated, bake the sausage quiche for 35 to 40 minutes. The crust of the sausage quiche should be golden brown. Another rule of thumb for testing if the sausage quiche is thoroughly cooked is by inserting a knife into the center of the sausage quiche. Upon removal, the knife should come out clean and free of uncooked quiche. If the sausage quiche is not done, bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Let the sausage quiche stand for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
Plating and presentation
Once cooled, slice the sausage quiche into eight slices. Top each piece of sausage quiche with one pecan half for garnish. For additional flavor, serve the sausage quiche with a healthy fruit or side salad. This sausage quiche is packed with the essentials, including protein, fruits, nuts, and dairy. The brunch appeal of the sausage quiche allows it to be served with an excellent hot or iced coffee. The cannabis-infused sausage quiche is a dish that is guaranteed to be adored by your friends this Thanksgiving!
