Southwest Avocado & Sausage Quiche

You know, ever since Avodaco and Guacamole decided to see other people, Avocado has really been getting around! Lately he's been partying with Penne in Italy.
Well, this week he stopped in Paris for a delicious little tête-à-tête with quiche.
The best of Europe and the Southwest? Oh-La-La!
Southwest Avocado & Sausage Quiche
makes 2
Ingredients:
2 medium avocados
2 deep dish frozen ready-made pie crusts
1 can diced green chilies
1 lb. sausage
6 eggs
2 3/4 c. whole milk (you can cut the fat by using fat-free half & half, it still bakes beautifully!)
2/3 c. parmesan cheese
1 C. swiss cheese
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook sausage until browned, remove from heat and drain fat. Add can of diced chilies and stir.
Divide sausage mixture among two deep dish ready made frozen pie crusts. Combine swiss and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 c. of cheese mixture on each quiche. Peel avocados and remove pit. Chop into 1/4"-1/2" cubes and sprinkle on top of cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese mixture on top of avocados. Break eggs into a large bowl and whisk for 30 seconds. Add milk, salt, pepper, and stir well. Place quiches on a baking sheet (you'll thank me later in case they spill over!!) and pour egg mixture into each crust until it reaches the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes until set. Remove from oven, slice, and serve. This is also delicious served cold! I just had some for breakfast, yummy!!
