Big Breakfast Pie
(my adaptation from a Today's Parent magazine recipe)
6 mild Italian sausages
1/2 package frozen puff pastry, thawed
7 eggs, divided
Salt and pepper
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook sausage on grill, or fry pan. Slice each into 6 pieces, set aside.
Roll pastry out into a rough circle, place in a 9" pie plate and let edges hang over the sides.
Place sausage in bottom of pie plate.
Whisk 6 eggs with salt and pepper. Spoon a little of the mixture into a small bowl and set aside. Pour remaining eggs over sausage in pie plate. Sprinkle cheese over eggs.
In small overlapping sections, fold pastry up toward centre of pie tightly, with just a small hole showing.
Brush reserved egg mixture over pastry.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and crack remaining egg in centre of pie. Return to oven for another 15 minutes. Let stand 8 minutes before serving.
