I love a great breakfast quiche recipe. I love them even more because you can make several and freeze them. You can freeze them before you cook them or after. I usually cook mine so I do not have to deal with trying to freeze liquid. Then you just thaw the quiche out and cook it covered with foil for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. If it is still frozen you will have to put it in the oven 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. I keep checking to make sure it is hot and then I take it out.
Thanksgiving is coming and we are all looking forward to enjoying a delicious meal.

I found some healthy appetizer recipes and I would love to share them with you. Here are my favorite recipes for healthy Thanksgiving appetizers for you to try.
Most families have traditional meals and their own spin on the fixings. My family is no different. Every holiday meal we have a preset menu. John’s absolute favorite thing is my grandmothers Oyster & Sausage Stuffing. Even if we’re not having poultry this stuffing is present.
He was craving Granny’s Oyster & Sausage Stuffing last night so I headed to the store to get most of the ingredients. I was bummed they didn’t have fresh rosemary and I had to resort to using dried rosemary leaves, but if you can find it fresh definitely use that. I was also feeling lazy so I went with pre-shucked oysters from the seafood market Hey, my mom is the master shucker when it comes to oysters, I always end up with cuts all over my hand!
This is a heavy and rich stuffing, a little goes a long way!
1large loaf of day old breadtorn into small bits, roughly 8-10 cups
1pintof shucked oystersroughly chopped
1stick of unsalted buttermelted
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350. And chop up your herbs and vegetables.
Oyster & Sausage Stuffing Recipe Herbs
In a large skillet cook the sausage, crumbling as you cook it.
While you’re waiting on the sausage to brown start chopping your herbs, celery and onion. Add them to a large bowl as you go.Add in the lemon juice and zest.
Add the bits of bread and oysters. Fold in the sausage.
Pour the beaten egg over top of the mixture and mix well. Add the butter, mix then add the chicken stock and mix. Mix in salt and pepper according to your preference.
Put the stuffing in a large casserole dish and bake for 1½ hours or until the top is golden brown.
Growing up on the Eastern Shore it’s hard not to incorporate fresh seafood in your traditional meals. It’s readily available and gives a touch of home to anything you eat. The oysters in the stuffing give off a distinct flavor, but the sausage plays it down so it’s not overwhelming. It’s one of those things you have to taste to believe.
