OK, I know what you’re thinking. Quiche is a sissy dish, right? I mean, if you’re going to eat eggs, why not fry them up like a couple of orange eyeballs, flip them over if you must to gel the slime, then slide them onto a warm plate, right next to your favorite breakfast meat. For my money, that meat is Jones Dairy Farm Cherrywood Smoked Bacon or Original Pork Sausage. Take your pick, or take them both.
But wait – what about this quiche thing? Well, if you listen to Outdoors Radio Show 1111, Chef Big Al dishes up a fantastic recipe for –– wait for it –– Pheasant and Sausage Quiche. Yup. Pheasant breast and Jones Original Pork Sausage.
Listen in as Hardwater Jeff Kelm and I give Big Al (owner of The Exclusive Hunting Club near Fort Atkinson) a hard time about a quiche dish. They don’t call him “Big Al” for nothing. I mean, this guy can put away a half dozen eggs and half pound of bacon for breakfast without batting an eye! And yet, here he is pushing this quiche dish on us. But give it a try –– I just about guarantee you’ll find it not only tasty, but downright satisfying, in a full-belly sense. This is a breakfast worth sitting down to!
Big Al presents this recipe at the 24:00 mark in the show. Listen in, and then download the recipe here. I won’t give it all away, but Jeff finally concedes he would try it if Al changed the name to “Pheasant, Sausage, Egg Bake.” Bake, quiche, call it what you want, but give it a try.
And if you’re intrigued by that recipe, then you’re ready for another pheasant/sausage dish: Pheasant Fried Rice. You’ll find this one in this week’s show, No. 1113, which will be posted on Lake-Link sometime this week. This time, it’s Jones Dairy Farm’s chef Shaun Edwards who dishes up a fried rice dish, complete with pheasant breast and some more of that juicy Jones Original Pork Sausage. You can hear it at about the 17:00 mark in this week’s show.
This recipe will also be posted on the Jones Dairy Farm website. Just search for it by name.
