Christmas Morning Breakfast Tart

Christmas morning has always been busy in our house. We get up early to open presents with the kids and then our guests start arriving around 7.30am for breakfast. Wayne cooks sausages, bacon and eggs on the barbecue while the kids toast English muffins. I prepare this tart the night before, browning the sausage mince and preparing the egg mixture, ready to just put it all together and in the oven when I get up. We have sides of grilled tomatoes and mushrooms with tea, coffee and  fruit juice and everyone starts what is generally a very busy day well fed and relaxed.

Christmas Morning Breakfast Tart

Ingredients:
250g sausage mince, browned, drained and crumbled
1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese*
1/2 cup grated Tasty cheese
1 x 22cm unbaked pastry shell (bought or make one using Elaine's Easy Pastry recipe)
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped red capsicum
1/4 cup chopped green capsicum
1 large tomato, sliced

Method:
Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Place cooked crumbled mince in a large mixing bowl. Fold in both cheeses.  Place pie shell in a pie plate.  Place the sausage mixture in the pie shell. Whisk eggs, milk, onion and capsicum in a separate bowl, making sure eggs are blended in well.  Pour the egg mixture over mince mixture. Place the sliced tomato on top of the casserole. Bake one hour or until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.  

*If you don't have Swiss cheese, and I often don't, use cheddar, mozzarella, or whatever cheese you have.

This doesn't have to be a breakfast dish. Serve it with a salad and crusty bread and it makes a great lunch or dinner meal too.
