Autumn Apple & Sausage Quiche

My husband said, "Real men don't eat quiche."  Of course this was while he was warming up the leftovers.  Did I mention he rarely eats leftovers?  I'm not sure what that says about his manhood, but it does say that he really enjoyed it.  Enough to eat it for dinner and lunch again the next day.  It's the perfect balance of savory sausage and sweet-tart apple.  With the holidays around the corner this would be ideal for Thanksgiving or Christmas brunches.  Or just make it for dinner like I did.  Even the "real men" in your family will enjoy it!
Perfect for holiday brunches...
The ingredients
Combine eggs with half and half.
Add mustard and celery seed.
Season with salt and pepper.
Combine shredded cheese with flour,

Stir in chopped parsley.
Place browned sausage in bottom of
pie crust.
Top with onion and apple.
Pour egg and cheese mixture over.
Bake approximately 40 minutes.
Cool 10 minutes before
slicing and serving.
