Monterey Sausage Pie is a delicious dish that combines savory sausages, vegetables, and cheese in a flaky pie crust. Below is a recipe to prepare this tasty pie:


For the filling:

1 lb (450g) pork sausages, casings removed (you can use any flavor you like)

1 small onion, finely chopped
1 bell pepper (any color), diced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or a mix of Monterey Jack and Cheddar)
1/2 cup milk
3 large eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
For the crust:

1 store-bought pie crust (9-inch) or homemade pie crust


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and diced bell pepper and cook until they become soft and slightly caramelized, around 5 minutes.
Add the sausage meat to the skillet, breaking it up with a spatula. Cook the sausage until it’s browned and fully cooked. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the skillet from the heat and let it cool slightly.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs until well combined.

Take your pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish, pressing it down gently to fit the shape of the dish.
Spread the cooked sausage mixture evenly over the pie crust.
Sprinkle the shredded Monterey Jack cheese over the sausage mixture.
Pour the milk and egg mixture over the top of the pie, ensuring it’s evenly distributed.

Optional: You can decorate the top with some extra slices of bell pepper or mushrooms for presentation.
Place the pie dish on a baking sheet (to catch any potential spills) and bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
Remove the Monterey Sausage Pie from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Enjoy your delicious Monterey Sausage Pie! It’s perfect as a main dish with a side salad or as a tasty snack for gatherings and parties.
