Potato Crusted Sausage Quiche

Around here, we eat A LOT of breakfast for dinner. It's fast, easy, we almost always have the necessary ingredients on hand, and my picky-eater husband is always happy with it. Because we eat "brinner" at least twice a week, I'm always on the lookout for a fun new recipe. Something besides the standard eggs and turkey bacon. Here is one of my favorites that I've adapted from several different recipes.

Potato Crusted Sausage Quiche (fancy, huh?)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cups shredded potatoes ( I just use a cheese grater to shred unpeeled potatoes, but you could use shredded frozen hash browns)
1 lb. turkey sausage, cooked and drained
3 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper
dash of hot sauce (I use tabasco)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix oil and potatoes in a 9 inch pie pan and press evenly into pie crust shape. 
Bake for 15 minutes, until just beginning to turn brown. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 375 degrees. Combine eggs, milk, and seasonings in a medium bowl. 
Beat lightly. Stir in sausage. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of cheese over potato crust. Top with sausage mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 50 minutes, or until set.
