A Hash Brown Quiche for Brunch
This a great quiche to serve members of your book club, bridge club or whatever club you meet with.
Instead of using a typical pie crust, I came across this recipe from a Kroger’s grocery store brochure. The airy lightness of the hash browns was a big hit.
Hash Brown Potato Quiche
3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup cooked ham, chopped
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup bell peppper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup jalapeño chile, seeded and finely chopped
3/4 cup cream
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425°. Pat the potatoes over the bottom and up the sides of a pie dish. Drizzle the butter over the potatoes. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven. Reduce the oven temp to 350°. Layer the ham, cheese, bell pepper, onion and jalapeño over the baked hash browns. Whisk the eggs, cream, salt and pepper and pour over the layered pie. Bake 25 minutes. Refrigerate leftovers. This serves 8 with a side dish.
