The crust should bake until its golden brown. Now while your crust is cooking. It’s time to make your filling. Beat your 8 eggs and 2 cups of half and half together. Next, you’re going to mix in the 1 cup of turkey sausage and 1 cup of green onions. Now place 1 cup cheese on the bottom each prebaked pie crust and ½ cup of turkey sausage on the of each prebaked pie crust. Pour equal parts of the filling in each prebaked pie crust. Bake for 15 to 20 mins or until it is solid. Use a tooth pick to check if it is done. (Check it from the middle of the pie)
