Country Breakfast Pie

1 pkg Jimmy Dean sausage
9 inch pie shell
1 + 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese
1/4 cup green and1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup light cream

Note about pie shell: I tried the refrigerated Pillsbury brand and like it much better than a frozen pie shell. I used my own 9 inch glass pie pan. We measured a 9 inch frozen pie shell and the outer edges were barely 9 inches. That's why I always had left over filling when using the frozen shell. But the best, of course, is to make your own fresh pie crust.

Cook sausage until done.  Crumble, then drain.  Mix cheese with sausage.  Sprinkle in pie shell.  Combine eggs with other ingredients.  Pour into pie shell. Bake at 375˚ for 40 to 45 minutes.  Cool slightly.
