College teaches you a lot of things, one of the most important being that you can (and should) eat breakfast for dinner at least once a week. Yes, I'll admit it, I'm obsessed with breakfast and equally obsessed with my mom's cheese and sausage quiche recipe.

Let my mom's quiche recipe be your recipe too and save you on one of those nights when you have 17 assignments due the next day. 

This recipe was adapted from Carolina Cooking.
