This recipe, with feta cheese and olives, has a buttery crust and a meaty, cheesy center. For a cocktail party, cut it into bite-size squares.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 30 mins

Bake: 25 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound bulk pork breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 4 pieces refrigerated biscuit dough, such as Pillsbury
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced
  • 2 large eggs, plus 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and oregano and cook, breaking up the sausage, until just browned, about 5 minutes. Drain and let cool.
  2. Grease a 9-inch pie pan with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Place 1 piece biscuit dough into a large resealable plastic bag and, using a rolling pin, roll into a 1/8-inch-thick disk. Remove the dough from the bag and transfer to the prepared pie pan. Repeat with the remaining dough pieces, pinching the pieces together in the pan to form a crust.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooked sausage, onion, feta and olives; spread evenly over the crust. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, egg yolks, milk and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage mixture and bake until set, about 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
