Sausage, egg and cheese breakfast tart is perfect for a weekend brunch, but it also works all week long for a quick and easy hot meal. Make it brinner, or serve it up to the littles before school – win-win!

Can you believe it’s back to school time already? I don’t want to really talk about it but I will. Some of you are just going back to school right now. Some of you went back to school a few weeks ago. SOME of you started a month ago!

Like seriously we started a month ago! It has been crazy to get used to school starting so early but honestly I do not mint having all of June and July off. I felt like I had a full summer so it has been awesome!

If you have read my blog for any length of time you would have heard me say on lots of occasions that I am not a breakfast person. I really think this has changed over the last year. I now get up and eat early so I can get on my bike and ride a few miles before I head off to work.

So to combat the early morning rush hour at home, I am coming up with a few breakfast options. Such as this sausage, egg and cheese breakfast tart.

How I made it the first time was I rolled out my pastry and cut a line along the edge. Why do I do this? So when it is done cooking I can press down the middle pretty easy and then add my toppings.

While my oven heated up and the pastry cooked I was able to get my eggs scrambled and my sausage cooked. Then when the pastry was done I just threw everything on top, put it back in the oven to get that cheese all good and melted and it was ready!

You can make all of the ingredients the night before if you want. Then in the morning put it together and heat in the oven until warm and the cheese has melted! That’s all it takes! ENJOY!
