Seriously, I am so excited and happy that not only did my family really like this pie, but so did the Today Show family. Tamron said she could eat the whole pie and Willie said he's having it for breakfast tomorrow. Al said the pies were "fantastic." Here's the link to the article, Pies you gotta try from Today Take's Pie Challenge and here's the video from this morning.............

1 lb. breakfast sausage (cooked, crumbled, drained)

2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste

2. Toss cooked breakfast sausage, chopped peppers, onions and 1 cup shredded cheese in a large bowl until combined. Spread filling over tortilla.
3. Whisk together eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in bowl until smooth. Slowly pour over filling in pie plate.
4. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese and bake until surface is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and top with sour cream and green onions.
