I lead a workshop called Cooking Wild Game for Maine BOW’s Winter Skills Weekend. One of the dishes we made is Bear Sausage Quiche. Thanks to Jeremy and Gene, generous hunters who donated sausage to my workshop, we were able to taste the sausage alone and use it in quiche. It was a big hit. Everyone loved the flavor and most were surprised by the mild flavor.
Line a 9 x 9 baking pan or pie plate with pie crust

2 cups of shredded cheese on top of the crust.
1 pound of precooked bear sausage on top of the cheese.

2 c sliced fresh mushrooms
6 eggs, scrambled with 1 oz cream or milk per egg, pour over other ingredients

Bake for 45 to 60 minutes at 350*. It’s done when a knife removes cleanly from the center. Let cool 10 minutes before cutting.
